Beth Macari says “I Am”
A top US soul radio station has awarded our good friend Beth Macari the “Presidents Choice Award” for her top 20 single “I Promise (That I Got You)” just as her next release supports local mental health charity with a video featuring celebrities and fans. Newcastle singer Beth has this week picked up the award from US soul radio station Indie Soul Cafe. Her single, “I Promise (That I Got You)”, has been played heavily on soul radio across the US and in particular, New York.
After releasing “I Promise” in March, the song hit the Top 20 in the US soul charts, along side artists such as Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland, platinum selling artist and actress Jojo and Blurred Lines singer Robin Thicke, with Beth featured as Artists of the Week upon entering the chart. This lead to Beth being nominated for and eventually winning the Presidents Choice Award on Soul Cafe radio! Beth has now released her next single, “I Am”. It’s a song all about ‘self-love’ and accepting who you are and is accompanied by a special, heart-warming music video.
After reaching out to her fans and celebrity friends, inviting them to describe themselves in one word, the video is a collage of short videos submitted by each participant. 100% of the sales of “I Am” will be donated to local mental health charity If U Care Share which works to prevent suicide and support those bereaved by it. Celebrities such as TV and radio host Gaby Roslin, former Emmerdale star Gemma Oaten, West End singer Cassidy Janson, Corrie and Holby City actor Charlie Condou and the North East’s own Chelsea Halfpenny have all taken part in the video with a view to increase awareness of the charities work far and wide.
