In the face of times of trial that cause us to despair having hope and being joyful are part of following a living God! So, Tabernacle’s gonna party in the street! Come and join us! Bring a friend, invite a neighbor!
And, on Sunday, September 24, Philadelphia-based Musician Joy Ike will be performing at Tab at 10am
Born to Nigerian immigrants, Joy Ike’s music, voice, and writing have drawn comparisons to female musicians such as Corinne Bailey Rae, Norah Jones, Regina Spektor, and Fiona Apple. But her percussive piano-playing and soaring vocals give homage to her African upbringing. Leaving her career as a publicist in 2008, Joy has spent the last 9 years playing thousands of shows across the country. She has had the opportunity to share the stage and open for Jeffrey Gaines, Sara Groves, Seth Glier, Cody Chestnutt, Allen Toussaint, and Tyrone Wells to name a few. A write-up on NPR’s All Things Considered says “The depth of subjects she tackles in her poetic lyrics are perfectly complemented by a unique blend of neo-soul, with just the right dash of pop…a truly compelling act to watch in person, with the ability to create an intimate setting in locations big and small.”
