    GoapeleFor those who don’t know, get familiar with this songstress. Goapele (the name means ‘to move forward’ in Sitswana, a South African language) has been doing her thing for a while both on the music and political front.

    “The Bay area-based Ella Baker Center for Human Rights will honor neo soul singer Goapele with its first ever “Human Rights Cultural Hero Award” next month.
    Known almost as much for her political activism as for her smooth voice and groove-driven music, the singer will accept the award on September 12 during the Center’s 10th Anniversary Celebration, “Tribute to the Dream.”
