For the past few weeks Inspire has been doing interviews/featuring guys in different industries such as music, comedy, child care. The purpose for this was just to recognise the men who I see via social media doing great jobs in their roles/ industries in a positive way and some are great Fathers, roles models for young people and adults.

Now it wouldn’t be right to not have a playlist that features male artists. So Inspire has created the Mandem playlist and it’s pure fire even if I do say so myself.

Check it out.

Thank you to the man dem who were involved and to the artist making goooood music. To those who have played the playlist and gave feedback big up yourself.



With three critical acclaimed EPs, a UK top 20 single with Lethal Bizzle, a successful collaboration with Wiley plus millions of views and streams already under her belt, British singer, songwriter and soul songstress Cherri V is a revered musician in her own right and is widely regarded as one of Britain’s best pure vocal talents.
Although Cherri has remained an independent artist, she has cultivated a steady following whilst gaining recognition from the likes of The Telegraph, Yahoo Music, BBC 1Xtra, Capital Xtra, MTV Base, MOBO Awards and BET, all singing her praises.

In what has been an eventful career so far, Cherri V has shared the stage and worked with some of her musical idols, including touring with Eric Benet, who she grew up listening to, opening for Brandy, Floetry and Musiq Soul Child in London, and performing with Teedra Moses in Europe. On top of that, Cherri V has also been embraced by UK veterans such as Jessie J, Donae’o, Terri Walker, and Kim Mazelle, to mention a few.


The vibrato queen has finally blessed us with her most intimate E.P so far. I feel like Brown Eyed Soul is a re-introduction to Cherri Voncelle for those that have been following her music for years and also a fresh introduction for those that are not familiar with Cherri’s previous music.

I love the upbeat sounds from the various producers such as Beat Freakz, Hannah V and features from  Roxxxvn, Sincerely Wilson to create just good quality music. This E.P doesnt feel like its boxed into labels of genres its just vibes. ‘Situationships’feat Sincerely Wilson is one of my favourites because it’s so relatable for everybody, its full of mood and melodies.  My personal favourite is ‘Leave Me Be’because at the time when I heard it that’s exactly how I felt, I was on going to Ibiza so stressed. Someone was actually “trying my patience.” I just wanted to left alone. On the other hand I really like melody and the bouncy beat of ‘Runaway.’

There is just only 8 tracks filled with meaningful content.


Also Cherri has her 1st headline show coming up 29th May @ The Islington.

Performing and sharing the reasons behind her songs is also an absolute moment for her, and what continues to drive her. Getting feedback that her music has had an emotional effect and connection with listeners, is what encourages Cherri V to keep writing with her heart on her sleeve.

I would like to apologise for the lack of posts for womens month. Every year Inspire Mysmile normally has a theme or just blog some inspiring stories however this year due to personal circumstances I havent been able to feature as much as I would have liked to. However I have managed to put together a small all female playlist who have some banging  tunes and I am just totally loving the vibes and appreaciating the beats and vocals from these artists. I really hope you will enjoy them as much as I do.

Hi Readers,

So I’ve been on the hunt for fresh creativity, something different. A few weeks ago I responded to a tweet on Twitter and I just said that Inspire Mysmile is always looking for new artists, creativity to feature on the blog. To say the least I was over whelmed by the response that was received from artists who are so passionate and just want to be heard as so many are often ignored by industry masses. Let me say it was hard going through all of the music. So here are some of the early entries so far. As I didn’t receive enough singers to add to my ‘Green light’ playlist, I thought it would be easier to just have separate features on here instead.  More artists will be added next week.
