EP 12: Tracy Chapman - The Journey of an Underdog

May 09, 02:49 PM
In this episode we delve into the story of much loved singer/songwriter Tracy Chapman as we explore her journey from poor but humble beginnings where she was raised by her strong independent mother. The moment she left the rough neighborhood in which she resided in Cleveland Ohio to pursue a passion of hers as a Veterinarian only to realise that her true passion lied with folk music and spreading her messages of peace, love, acceptance and protest. We take a look at the moment that catapulted Tracy into the limelight with her performance at Nelson Mandela’s 70th birthday celebrations at Wembley Arena, we take a look at the meaning behind all of her brilliant songs such as Fast Car, Bang Bang Bang, Across The Lines and many more and we journey through the biggest moments of her career to what she is doing today.
