The Local Take, Kathleen Bertrand Says Vote Tuesday

Jan 3, 2021

This week on The Local Take, I reached out to Kathleen Bertrand, singer and Black Girl Magic personified, to talk about her new song My Voice, My Vote, which I'm sure WCLK listeners have been enjoying.  

Tuesday, January 5th is the last day to vote in the Georgia Senate Run-Off Races. For more information.


I ask Bertrand about her family's survival during the Pandemic, and she explains that "Testimony #1" is that she's still here.
