We went to a shelter and then ended up living in a motel, all six of us in this tiny little room with just a hot plate for a kitchen.” Throughout her family’s frequent moves and financial struggles, Charmaine had always turned to music as a source of comfort and stability, something she could rely on for emotional support no matter how difficult things got. Her powerful new song and video for “Double Dutch” that blends elements of R&B and hip-hop in a soulful, feel good way. The visual is just the icing on the cake! Tap in above now, enjoy.
