Meet the group Ejyptian Queen, made up of sisters Zekuumba, Zeimani and Zekkujchagula. They’ll be part of Saturday, August 2’s People Get Ready: A Soundtrack of the Civil Rights Movement. They might be young, but they have strong ties to some important figures in music history.
Their parents are Grammy winning composers, producers, and recording artists Cecil and Linda Womack of Womack & Womack. Their uncle is no other than the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Bobby Womack AND their grandfather is legend, Sam Cooke. Discuss about a nice set of genes!
People Get Ready: A Soundtrack of the Civil Rights Movement is a vital musical celebration of the Civil Rights Movement and 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 with exciting renditions of the freedom songs that heralded historic change in the USA.
Featuring material written or originally performed by Sam Cooke, Curtis Mayfield, Billie Holiday, Sly Stone, Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, John Coltrane, Nina Simone, The Staple Singers, Harry Belafonte, Pete Seeger, Ray Charles and more.
