Grammy Award nominated singer-songwriter, Cheryl Fortune, has battled her way onto the prestigious Billboard Magazine Gospel Airplay chart with her solo debut, “Fighters” (LuDawn Music/Tyscot). The empowering anthem makes its debut at No. 28 on this week’s tabulation. The song booms with a catchy, marching band rhythm that is catching on in a big way.
Fortune just wrapped production on a heart-wrenching concept music video of “Fighters” that sheds light on domestic abuse, sex trafficking, suicide and addiction. The video is now in rotation on Music Choice, Centric TV and BET Gospel.
While the booming beat and message of the song is applicable to anyone facing an obstacle, it comes from a personal place for Fortune. “The last two years have been extremely difficult for me and my family but we’re fighting our way through it,” she says. “This song was born out of that situation and it’s a message of hope to anyone who has a fight on their hands. Whether it’s a relationship, trouble on the job or a health crisis, you can fight it and win.”
