In the city: Singer-songwriter Charity.


Singer-songwriter Charity grew up in Detroit and was shrouded in the dark tides that washed over the city. A place with many wounds, Charity became familiar not only with pain, but even more so with healing. Though her city was withering away, the rich musical history was still very much alive as she grew up connecting with the soul music of the 70s, specifically Michigan-native Stevie Wonder. At 18-years-old, Charity left Detroit for Nashville where she studied classical and jazz guitar at Tennessee State University. Honing in on her skills as a musician as well as delving into her cultural heritage, TSU shaped Charity into an empowered and creative woman.
