Check out this video – Journalist
This animated folk video was released in 2011 and based on a song from Shakhan’s debut album of 2004.
The track was written whilst living in London, England. It relates to the balance of responsibility between the press and the public. Although it refers to a variety of stories that have been read by many – it was inspired by a particular event that occurred in the USA, that was widely reported there and also across the pond in Britain. That story surrounded the death of Matthew Eapen and his British nanny Louise Woodward.
One write up in the BBC at the height of the case can be viewed here:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/19254.stm and is entitled
jury finds Louise guilty of 2nd degree murder.
It is accompanied by a photo of her captioned: “Louise Woodward breaks down during the decision.”
Keith (Muzikman) Hannaleck described Shoshanah’s rendition of the song “heartfelt … one of the highlights of the CD”
