Shav-A Pays Tribute To The Heroes On “Redemption Song”


The world is filled with heroes. While some are widely celebrated, and some have remained anonymous, they’ve all risked their lives in efforts to save many, or make a significant change in society. Paying tribute to her personal heroes, Recording Artist Shav-A delivers her rendition of “Redemption Song“. Borrowing the late Bob Marley’s 1980 classic, Shav-A sought the assistance of Musician Ed George on the Piano over the original’s Guitar performance, and gives us her 2019 version. While the original was inspired by elements of National Hero Marcus Garvey’s 1937 “The Work That Has Been Done” speech, Shav-A’s version pays tribute to Marcus Garvey, and fellow National Heroes Paul Bogle and Nanny of the Maroons.

Shav-A, who is the daughter of Reggae Artist Admiral Tibet, started her 2019 strong with the remix of her 2018 single “I Need Your Love” which featured French Recording Artist Orti. She is currently gearing up for a string of live performances to take place in the coming weeks, and will be making updates via her Instagram page at @ShavAMusic. She is currently promoting the singles, “Father” and “Island Girl“.
