No Ordinary Love: BGF Spotlights Devin Tracy
Music is an interesting art. There are elements to it that, when perfectly aligned, create sparkling magic that feeds our ears, hearts, and souls. But there are takeaways: not every song is meant to be sung by everyone. Not every musician is meant for every instrument. There are some extraordinary beings who have the niche that is a essential to the creation and or rebirth of music for the whole of you. One young artist that is making waves in that pool is Devin Tracy. Devin Tracy is a singer/songwriter who moved to New York City from Jacksonville, Florida 3 years ago to pursue his career in music. Devin has been performing all over the city of New York in places such as Bitter End, Pianos, Bowery Electric , and S.O.B.'s just to name a few. Devin Tracy currently lives in the Bronx & is now working on his next EP which is set to be released Summer 2016. Devon Tracy has taken a soulful R&B Classic “No Ordinary Love” (Sadé, “Love Deluxe”) and transformed it into a dance groove that is remnant of house music and Hip-Hop. We congratulate Devin on the release of this epic song cover, released on Valentine's Day! Be sure to check it out on soundcloud and follow the artist to stay in tune with all he has to come!

Hey yawl I’m Tyler Marie, or Ty as I’ve come to be called. I am a (West-Side) Chicagoan ‘til Chicago ends. I attended Whitney M. Young Magnet High School here in the city and went on to attend the first Private HBCU, Wilberforce University (OH) where I obtained my B.A. Sociology in 2012. It’s probably pretty clear now that writing is kind of ‘my thing’ but I’m more than okay with that. Other hobbies include eating, playing basketball, modeling and singing. Basically, I spend all my time trying to be as fly of a Black Girl as I can be. Connect with me via: Twitter/Instagram- @_Mighty5| Tumblr- iamjusttyler.tumblr.com
