canadian soulstress tanika charles is breaking free from her 9 to 5 for her passion in new “soul run” video

February 13, 2017

Everybody has a dream and not everybody gets there, but Tanika Charles isn’t letting anything hold her back. In her new single “Soul Run,” Tanika is pressing towards the mark, leaving behind the fear and embracing the uncertainty of forging her own path. Tanika said, “The video depicts me leaving me day job to pursue my passion, Soul Run is about empowerment. After being locked down in a suffocating relationship (kind of like a 9-5 that you aren’t happy with) I decided to leave. No need to remain unhappy. Live your fullest life. Be your truest self.” If you need a song for motivation to leave a situation or space that is holding you back, watch “Soul Run” and spread your wings!
