Singing Glory Hallelujah In the Midst of the Nation's Conflicts

San Francisco-based singer/songwriter and recording artist Kate Magdalena releases a soaring new take on the traditional Civil War ballad, the “Battle Hymn of the Republic.”

The hymn sings “Glory Hallelujah” in the midst of our nation’s great conflicts, such as were witnessed during the Civil War, and again today as our country struggles to unite under a common vision of what it means to be American. The lyrics were written in 1861 by Julia Ward Howe to fit the tune of “John Brown’s Body.” Since that time, the song has evoked and expressed sentiments of real patriotism, as well as religious fervor. Kate took a liking to the song when she first heard it powerfully sung by Judy Garland to honor President Kennedy as the nation grieved his death. She hopes now to rekindle it as an inspiration for America today, as the nation prepares to celebrate the July 4th holiday.

“Battle Hymn of the Republic” is the third track from Kate’s upcoming album “A Larger Dance” which is set to release in September 2019. To date she has released “Take Me to Church,” by Irish singer Sinead O’Connor on country radio stations…

Coming off the release of her debut single “Get What U Get,” powerhouse pianist CHLOE FLOWER today releases her first-ever music video for the track. Directed by Santiago Salviche (Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey), the video finds Chloe at the center of the action, performing amongst a cast of powerful female dancers. Mimicking the rise and fall of Chloe’s emotive melody, the mesmerizing video showcases Chloe’s high-energy performance style and reflects the empowering message behind “Get What U Get”.

Of the video, CHLOE FLOWER says, “The overall message of the video is freedom, empowerment, and owning who you are. We are too often held down by relationships, people or even societies views on what mold we should fit into. My mission through my music is to inspire people to break free from the real or imaginary chains that are holding them back.”

Following her show-stealing performance alongside Cardi B at the 2019 Grammy Awards, Chloe Flower released her much-anticipated debut single “Get What U Get” on Sony Music Masterworks.
