Tasha Cobbs Leonard: Visionary Women
For her International Women's Day playlist, created exclusively for Apple Music, powerhouse gospel singer Tasha Cobbs Leonard chose songs that not only touch her soul, but, most importantly, get her moving. “'God in Me' is faith in a groove,” she says about contemporary duo Mary Mary's upbeat declaration of healing and worship. One of the singers who inspired her the most is Aretha Franklin, whose immortal "Respect" has an undeniable message of equality and justice. "What’s not to love?" she says. "There are some songs that are innately birthed to empower, and this is one of them for me. It will always be relevant and effective because it just exudes empowerment."
