Keb’ Mo’ and Rosanne Cash, both musicians known for their activism and philanthropic work, have teamed up to release, ‘Put A Woman In Charge’: an upbeat anthem with a timely message about female empowerment and embracing women in leadership roles. Keb’ Mo’ says that the track “is about trying something else. There have been a lot of great achievements made by men or by the masculine, but maybe, just maybe, we’ve gotten too comfortable with the imbalance of men in power and have fallen short by not listening and embracing what women have to offer when they lead. I think the song should be heard and conversations need to be had. It’s about empowering each and every one of us to contribute, and to be brave to step forward and speak up.” Although don’t let that woman have the initials TM preferably. Or MT for that matter.
