Aptly titled "Shefik presents Invocation", the nationally-syndicated radio show is a mesmerizing and thought-provoking journey through musical discovery and appreciation that spans the decades. Each one-hour episode highlights one relatable focal point (chosen by Shefik), along with an accompanying playlist of songs (curated by Shefik), encompassing a unique thematic concept that invigorates the audience with creative impact.
Legendary recording artists, such as Dionne Warwick; Gerald Alston of The Manhattans; Melba Moore; Sarah Dash; Sonny Turner (former lead singer of The Platters); Leaveil Degree of The Whispers; Tito Puente, Jr.; Ladies of SKYY; Trisco Pearson of Force M.D.'s; and many other music industry veterans are all scheduled to appear in early episodes of the show.
This particular episode (about "Peace"), which is the 32nd episode of the radio show, features 2-time Grammy Award nominee Freddie Jackson; recording artist and multi-platinum songwriter Janice Dempsey; drummer and musical director Abe Fogle (Rob Thomas, Alex Bugnon, Kelis, D'Angelo, Kool and the Gang, Guy); and recording artist Mr. Every Day (CEO, Past Life Entertainment); as well as messages from Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Chris Jasper (Member, The Isley Brothers (1973-1983) and Member, Isley-Jasper-Isley (1984-1987)); and C R Capers (Founder, Hip Hop Film Festival and Harlem Film House/MBS Films).
