Give me a job! A walk down South Bank one late afternoon.

I was walking down South Bank, London the other and came to a stop. Sherika had just found her spot and I felt that it was important to be in the ‘moment’. So, I stopped and waited for her to setup- later I would find out that she was a little surprised that I had stopped even before hearing anything.

Before I knew it Sherika had broken in to song and what a voice! Sherika is a 23 year old South Londoner has been gigging for 6 years and has already played at venues such as Ronnie Scotts, The Bedford and Jazz Cafe Camden yet she is mostly known for her busking sessions on the London Southbank.

 

Her song ‘Give me a Job’ (click above to listen!) which shares her life-experience after quitting university recently went viral on social media and has received over 25,000 shares on Facebook in just 24 hours. The video was also featured on the London Live Tv Channel.

Sherika regularly busks on South Bank because she loves doing what she does. You can really feel her emotion and energy behind the lyrics and melody.

I took some time recording a number of her songs. I edited these videos to bring a different light and energy to the videos.

I hope you enjoyed these videos, please like and share them!
