Offspring of Donny Hathaway, Bill Withers, Chaka Khan & others will be the focus of documentary, soundtrack & tour.
“This is divine intervention, the universe saying here you go.” So declares singer/songwriter Sandra St. Victor about her latest venture, a PledgeMusic campaign to fulfill her long-dreamed Daughters of Soul documentary, soundtrack and worldwide tour.
The three-tiered project will feature the daughters of six soul legends: Lalah Hathaway (Donny Hathaway), Lisa Simone (Nina Simone), Indira Khan (Chaka Khan), Kori Withers (Bill Withers), Syleena Johnson (Syl Johnson) and Sylvette “Phunne” Stone (The Family Stone’s Sly Stone and Cynthia Robinson). The entire package is inspired by the Daughters of Soul European concert series that St. Victor founded in 2004 to carry on R&B’s influential legacy. The last tour in 2007 featured St. Victor, Hathaway, Withers, Khan and Nona Hendryx. Previous lineups have included Joyce Kennedy (Mother’s Finest), Deniece Williams, Caron Wheeler (Soul II Soul) and Leah McCrae (daughter of George and Gwen McCrae).
