Three musical powerhouses, Grammy winner Autumn Rowe, South African sensations Msaki, and Jesse Clegg, released their soul-stirring single “Home” and they have officially dropped the music video! The song delves into the universal theme of home – a sanctuary of love and support during challenging times.
Johannesburg and Cape Town served as key stops in Autumn Rowe’s promotional journey, providing an opportunity for fans to connect with the artist and get an exclusive insight into the creation of “Home”.
Jesse Clegg shares his enthusiasm about the collaborative process, saying, “Making Home was a really inspiring experience for me. The moment we got into the studio, there was an immediate sense of chemistry and a shared vision of what we wanted to say with the song.”
The philanthropic aspect of the song holds significant importance for the trio, showcasing how music can be a powerful force for good.
Msaki adds, “I’ve enjoyed working with Jesse and Autumn! This is a powerful song, and I hope it connects with listeners!”
In a remarkable gesture, the artists have composed “Home” specifically for the Johannesburg Jewish Helping Hand (Chevrah Kadisha), the largest Jewish welfare and social services umbrella organization in South Africa. The organization serves those in need from cradle to grave, embodying the spirit of the song.
