“The song “Angry Black Woman“, was born from an outpouring of emotions felt regarding the continued police brutality towards black people…my people. I wanted to give a voice to the hurt, pain, frustration and anger that I myself and so many of us are feeling right now. Whether we realize it or not, the cause of inhumane treatment will always create an imbalanced effect and unrest for all of us, mentally, spiritually, physically and emotionally. We must have justice or there will be no peace,“ mentions Terry Ellis.
Terry Ellis has been celebrating the 30th anniversary of En Vogue’s first album, “Born To Sing,” that was reissued on April 3rd.
