?Growing up in Africa, I developed a deep connection with nature and the universe,? says Bebe Zahara Benet from the New York City recording studio where she is busy putting the finishing touches on her upcoming album that includes the hit single, ?Face?,?her shimmering ode to glamour.? She will unveil some of her new work at?Reveal.? ?I learned to treasure the oneness in my soul. When all the media frenzy from winning first struck, I was able to find a way out of the madness through my spiritual connection. It helped keep me grounded.?
In?Reveal, Benet aims to teach audiences how they, too, can uncover peace in their lives by finding purpose and seeking truth.? She?s a strong believer that the universe has the power to alter one’s destiny.
?We all have an innate sense of spirituality,? she confirms. ?So many people choose to focus their energy on external nonsense and ignore the internal spirit, failing to realize that life can not be lived to the fullest without having a close connection with one?s inner most energy.?
This will be Bebe?s first time performing at New York?s The Triad Theatre. ??The Triad is a precious gem that will allow for a more intimate performance,? she says.??Fans should prepare for loads of surprises.? I?will reveal new music, new looks, new stories, and the greatest enigma of them all: me.?
