About Chanda Rule
Chanda Rule has been singing her heart out since she was a little kid. Her music is a mix of gospel, soul, and jazz, and it's pretty darn amazing. She's performed all over the world and even been on TV a few times. People really dig her sound, and she's been featured in some cool books and magazines.
But what really sets Chanda apart is her concerts. They're a unique experience, blending music, storytelling, and poetry with religious stuff. She's all about bringing people together and making them feel good. And let me tell you, if you're lucky enough to catch one of her shows, you'll leave feeling inspired and uplifted.
Chanda knows how to connect with her audience on an emotional level. Her song "Seeds" is a perfect example. It takes Billie Holiday's "Strange Fruit" and looks at it through the lens of the Black Lives Matter movement. But it's not just a protest song. It's also about giving her young son a sense of hope and optimism for the future. And let me tell you, it's a delight to hear.
