It’s been three years since our ears have been caressed by Goapele’s sultry vocals. The Bay Area vocalist ends that drought next month with a new project entitled Dreamseekers. The first single is the vibrant, ethereal “Power,” which showcases a reflective Goapele that celebrates love in all its facets (self, family, community etc.)
“I’m a woman, but I’m also a whole person who won’t be confined to any one box,” she told VIBE. “Nobody is just one thing. Within any race, within any genre, and within any neighborhood, there’s so much diversity. As artists and especially as women of color, we have to be proud of that. I’m coming from an honest place and expressing the different parts of myself that make me whole.”
Dreamseekers is set for a May 19 release.
