According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, more than 10 million men and women are physically abused by their intimate partner, and rising R&B songstress, musician, and songwriter Kandice Cherelle is dedicating her single, “Broken” in their honor. The single is premiering exclusively on GroovyTracks.
Kandice Cherelle, a Metro Atlanta native is using her experience with domestic violence to help uplift other women and men. Her single, “Broken” talks about taking time to heal from the trauma of life so you can be the best person you can be. Domestic violence is a cause that she takes very seriously, but brokenness can hail from any situation. She decided to release the single in October during National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
“So many people everywhere are experiencing domestic violence, and many in secret,” she said.
Cherelle’s mission is to entertain, inspire, and help her fans heal through music. Transitioning from solely creating gospel music, she is using her testimony to help others, especially domestic violence victims, who feel “broken.”
“Although I dedicated this song to domestic violence survivors and victims and their families, this song is for anyone going through something,” she said. “I truly believe that healing is possible, especially through music. This song talks about putting health and self-care first. Healing is possible.”
The end of the chorus really speaks to taking care of self.
“Can’t give my all if I’m only half of me,”
If you’re going through something “Broken” is uplifting and has a vibe to help get you through.
