Up and coming Israel based Ethiopian vocalist Ester Rada recently released a new track called "Life Happens." The opening verse of the song definitely hints at some Erykah Badu vibes, which then quickly unfolds and lifts off into an upbeat tune somewhat reminiscent of VV Brown. Loving the Eastern string intstrumentation up in the mix as well!
