Accomplished singer and Harlem native Vivian Sessoms, in the company of some of the world’s finest musicians, stakes a claim to a sound all her own on her new album LIFE. Having earned her stripes as a performer with Ryuichi Sakamoto, P. Diddy, Michael Jackson, Donna Summer and many others, Sessoms and co-producer/creative partner Chris Parks bring their vast array of experiences to bear on an inspired, jazz-influenced set that proves Sessoms a fiery, forward-thinking artist in her own right.
As much as Life I surprised and delighted us, Vivian stepped up the game with her powerful video for the lead single I Can’t Breathe as we lead up to the second album release. A tribute to Eric and Erica Garner, the song is not only one of the most powerful vocal performances we’ve heard but is also a moving statement on the state of America today. Life II continues Vivian’s story, and clearly expresses her expansive musical vision. Life II is set for release on May 17th, with preorder open now.
