A Mother’s Love Song to Her Child by Macklin

Macklin, a Black singer-songwriter is capturing the passion and semblance of Nina Simone with this soulful offering. Mother’s Love Song to Her Child is an absolutely breathtaking track in which Macklin shares the story of young Emmett Till, a black boy that Roy Bryant and J.W. Milam abducted, beat, and mutilated, before shooting him in the head and sinking his body in the Tallahatchie River. 

Macklin’s vocal is powerful, gritty, intense, and pouring over with soul. This track will leave you in tears.

Black Lives Matter.
