Ava Cherry – “Testify Love”


Ava Cherry’s successful music career spans five decades. The Chicago-based artist has released multiple albums and worked with the likes of David Bowie, Luther Vandross, and Curtis Mayfield, returning recently with a new full-length album, due this year on Chicago/Miami-based label Wake Up! Music. “Testify Love” is the album’s first single, a brisk and catchy display of spirited strings, bustling funk-tinged bass, and soulfully infectious vocals. Ava Cherry was one of David Bowie’s backing vocalists between 1974 and 1978; the gripping vocal performance on this track shows precisely why. This track shows that 2020 is poised to be a big year for Ava Cherry.

“Testify Love” and other memorable tracks released in march can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of March 2020’ Spotify playlist.
