Samm Henshaw Performs “Doubt” and Bob Marley's “Redemption Song” on BBC 1Xtra
- London-based singer-songwriter Samm Henshaw appeared on BBC 1Xtra to perform “Doubt” and Bob Marley's “Redemption Song”.
“Doubt” was released by Samm Henshaw in 2018. He worked with British rapper Wretch 32 on the track.
Samm Henshaw said of the song, “Doubt is about birthing visions into reality, it reflects on a time when I wasn’t in a great place and trying to figure life out and realised the truth in a bible scripture that says “faith without works is dead”. Which simply means you can believe something will happen but if you don’t move in that belief you will remain stagnant. Was fortunate enough to work on this one with the genius that is Wretch 32 and my boy Josh Grant!”
“Redemption Song” was released by Bob Marley and the Wailers from their twelfth album “Uprising” in 1980.
Bob Marley wrote the song in 1979. At that time, he had already been diagnosed with the cancer in his toe that took his life a couple years later.
Rita Marley, who is the widow of Bob Marley, said “Rhe was already secretly in a lot of pain and dealt with his own mortality, a feature that is clearly apparent in the album, particularly in this song.”
