Nakia Henry’s Transition 3rd Cycle Video

Nakia Henry has released a great video for the song “Transition 3rd Cycle”.  It’s a variation/remix of “Transition” from her 2009 album “Remember Me”.  It’s nice to see an artist keep working son a song, and see it grow and evolve from it’s original form.  Check out the video, and let her  (@nakiasaid) know your thoughts.

Nakia Henry Tells a Story of Transition (Video)

Nakia Henry, an artist who I have come to love her music, has released a video for her remixed song Transition. It’s from her debut album “Remember Me”.  It’s a song of life, struggle, and change.  Very beautiful, and will give you insight to her and her music.  Take a listen, and check out the album.  You’ll enjoy the discovery.

Direction Of Soulified

As you may have noticed lately that things have kinda of slowed down on the site.  With the holidays, my two other jobs and just less time available for me to spend like I did this summer, I’ve had to think about what do I want to do with Soulified.  Then to have the shocker that  SoulUK has decided to suspend operations for now.  I’ve really wanted to make the right move. I’ve have thought about it, and want to get Soulified, back to it’s roots.  At the start of the blog, almost two years ago I wanted to expose the unknown or unsigned Soul artist.  After trying to push growth on the site, and have a Facebook page, twitter, Tumblr and so forth, it all gets diluted.

I’m not going to try to keep abreast of every single release, video debut, rumor of a new album that’s upcoming, or award shows.  It makes me smile more to expose someone to Cilla K or Nakia Henry, than post a news snippet about a upcoming video or who won what award.  There are a lot of choices for music news, and I’m not going to try to run the same stories that you can see on five other sites.  You want each of the sites you visit to be something unique and worthwhile.  So each week, I will focus Soulified on ONE Soul artist.  In that week, I will have a bio, interview, showcase of their videos, albums, singles and hopefully a give away.  I think that way you get a much more complete view of the artist, and not just a snapshot.  So, there will be 52 artists showcased and detailed, this coming year. Hopefully it will be an artist that is new to you or you may discover something new about an old favorite.

I hope that you can understand my choice to take Soulified, in this direction and continue to visit for your Soul music needs.  Thank you and Enjoy.

Nakia Henry Releases “Love Letter”

Nakia Henry is an artist that is new to me, and maybe to you also. She has just released a single, titled “Love Letter (He Wants Me To Win)”.  This is after she released “Remember Me” last year.  It was her debut album, that as she states the purpose,  “intending to reunite the self with the Self“.  That’s a very profound statement, and something you don’t find every day.  It also gives you insight into the music that Nakia Henry creates, and wants to share with the world.  For example, this single “Love Letter (He Wants Me To Win)”, has some earthy and also astral aspects at the same time.  It’s a great love story, that details the support, uplifting, and positivity of love that can exist in a relationship.  Her soft infliction filled voice, blends perfectly with the song.  You have to take a moment, to listen to the song and hear what her voice is saying, not her words.  That’s when you will get the true feeling of the song. Also, “Love Letter Part 2” is on it’s way. Enough of my ramblings, listen to the song and see for yourself.
