Brew Beauty: Goapele

Goapele (@goApele) is our latest Brew Beauty of the Week!  This singer/songwriter hails from Oakland, CA and is the child of a Jewish mother and South African father.  Her name means go forward in the African language of her grandfather.  Aside from her work in music, what makes Goapele beautiful is the human rights work she does.  She was honored by the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights with its "Human Rights Cultural Hero Award" in 2006.  Goapele may not be a household name to the mainstream, but that's why we Witches are here to enlighten you to her music.  Her latest project, "Milk & Honey," is due out in early 2010. 

Take a listen to her music...

"Milk & Honey"


If you're in DC or NYC, you're in luck... Goapele's performing in both cities later this month.  Click the links for ticket info, then head to our Facebook page for our Brew Beauty gallery to see more of Goapele. And while you're there, become a fan and then follow our blog!  Drop us a line if there's someone you'd like to see as our next Beauty of the Week!
