International Rising Star Sherry Lewis pens inspiring message to the masses with new single ‘People’
NEW YORK, NY – The latest single from international rising artist Sherry Lewis is more than just a captivating blend of Rock, Pop, Funk and Soul that bends the mind with its catchy groove and intriguing rhythms. “People” is also an important piece of work to inspire a world weary from sickness, violence and division.
“People” is the very essence of unity, both in its lyrical approach and in Lewis’ fusion of so many different genres and influences of sound and style. Serving as a perfect platform for her sultry and soulful vocals, “People” is in one moment a Synth Pop track with a Rock edge, and at other moments a Funky Soul groove with electric guitar riffs. At times, Lewis’ voice takes on a raspy and satisfying growl, while at other times her beautiful contralto soars over the keys with such beauty that it brings a tear to the eye. “People” is one of those tracks that comes at you from out of nowhere and immediately makes you want to know more about the artist who wrote it.
“It’s a song that just came to me back in March when I was on a plane flying home from Florida,” Lewis said. “I always write about my experiences in life – what I’m feeling and what’s happening around me – and at the time we were just being hit with COVID. There were so many reactions to that at the time, so many people were scared or traumatized and no one was traveling. I was reading stories of people losing loved ones, and it all just hit home for me in that moment on the plane. So I started writing. The lyrics touch on things happening in our nation with systemic racism and political division and quarantine and so many other things that are causing so much fear and division. The message is ultimately about spreading love. I’m a uniter and a lover. We need to understand that we need to love one another. We’re all one – no matter what color you are or where you’re from, we’re still people. When we’re united as one, we can accomplish anything. Love is always the conqueror. It wins over anything that is not love. And so with ‘People’ I want to inspire others and motivate them to spread love. I want to help people know that they’re not the only ones suffering or feeling alone. We’re all hurting, but we’re all in this together and hopefully this is a song that will make people feel good and inspire them.”
That irrepressible spirit is something that has shone through Lewis’ music for many years. She’s a performer who has been charming audiences for years. In 2016, she wrote and dedicated a powerful music video tribute to the then leaders of the White House. In 2019, she followed up with another spectacular, heart-wrenching music video tribute to the late Michael Jackson on the 10th anniversary of his passing. But long before that, Lewis started a career that would see her performing in places all over the world. After graduating from the On Broadway Training Program for the Performing Arts, Lewis joined Enchantment – an R&B/Pop female group that was blazing a trail in her home country of Trinidad at the time. The group’s runaway success led to performances at the Caribbean’s premier nightclubs and saw them opening for international recording artists and celebrities at major venues. Eventually, Lewis chose to pursue a solo career and moved to the U.S. It wasn’t long after she was wowing audiences at clubs and venues in the Big Apple. She caught the attention of international talent spotters and began headlining shows on the nightclub circuit in Italy, France and Monte Carlo.
That journey has led her to 2020, a year in which she was given the blessing in disguise of time alone and off the stage. That dedicated and focused time away from the touring life gave her the opportunity to create an album, which she said should release in early summer 2021. “People” will be the debut single from that project.
