GRAMMY nominated recording artist, Carolyn Malachi, has drooped a gem from her pending CD due out 12.6.16 The track is entitled Introduction: I Wish and it is dope. In the song Carolyn sings of her wishes. The song is so good that you’ll find yourself on the same page as Ms Malachi quickly. The only negative thing I have to say about this song is that it’s too short! I’m sure that ths track is a testament to how dope the album will be.
