In celebration of Black History Month, The Alex is proud to present SONGS FROM MY SOUL
Fresh from her sell- out London show, and a packed Canterbury Festival appearance, Ginger Bennett presents the music from her Arts Council funded show, Songs from My Soul. This is a rare opportunity to engage with the writer, producer and star of the show as she talks about the stories of Being, Becoming and Belonging that helped shape the compositions of Ginger Bennett & Frances Knight.
We will laugh too! Ginger is best viewed up close and personal leaning towards the laughter and the lighter side of life. Come and share your stories as the project enters its final phase and inspire the Songs from my Soul Team to immortalise your story in song.
The music gives voice to the stories of hard-working, strong Black women who came to Britain for a better life and, despite the odds, survived and kept their families together. “But still, like dust, I’ll rise….” as Maya Angelou once sang for a generation.
The poignant lyrics of Legacy tell a story where even in what should be considered a multicultural society, prejudices remain. – Trevor Moss, Academy FM
She lays her soul bare; we love her for it and wish we were as brave.
Such a beautifully soulful voice – BBC Radio Kent
