Soulful singer Wellington Bullings is creating a name for herself in the jazz and soul music field. She has been playing in Colorado venues for many years as a seasoned singer and songwriter.
In early July of 2020, she released her debut album Because I Want To around self-empowerment, feminine power, romance, and heartbreak. Her music is a rich blend of soul, jazz, and R&B. Her sensual tones, which mirror those of Lianne La Havas and Norah Jones, are sure to soothe the spirit and relax the mind.
Her new track “Flame” is about black people’s beauty, power, and tenacity. It’s about the value of ancestral healing and remembering those who have died as a result of racial injustice. “Flame” is a song about honouring the light and resilience that all black people possess.
Wellington felt obliged to tell a storey that would focus on an embowering storyline in reaction to the racial injustices that emerged in 2020. She yearned to tell a story that didn’t focus on victimhood, but rather on the tenacity and beauty that black people possess.
Her mission is also to inspire and empower the community by working with local black-owned businesses to bring awareness to these issues. As a result, she has crafted a powerful music video for “Flame” in which she featured local black-owned companies such as fashion designers, dancers from the famed Cleo Parker Robinson Company, models, and a variety of other creatives.
