Definitely don't hear too much soulful Hanukkah music during the holiday season, whereas a variety of Christmas music always seems to be in abundance - so, this is refreshing. Chico Mann invited our lovely gal Alecia Chakour to lend her vocals for the warm and cozy new tune, "Light of Love." Got us dreaming of candlelight, fireplaces, and hot chocolate on this Thursday afternoon.
Also, for those unfamiliar with Alecia, please get to knowing and be sure to check her out on December 20 for a very special show. The night is going to be killer. Alecia shared with us:
"What makes this night even cooler is that the bands feature allstars from The Royal Family (Soulive, Lettuce), Daptone Records (Dap-Kings, Charles Bradley, Antibalas), David Byrne's band and TV On the Radio. Basically, 20 of my favorite musicians in one tiny room."
