Ebony Archer

Ebony Archer is an independent solo artist whose single, “Gotta Believe in Me,” is a youth empowerment anthem with a Jamie Grace vibe in its bubbly cheerfulness. Its message of self-confidence is bolstered by assertive electronica and a thumping backbeat. “Doesn’t matter if I fall,” she sings, “Gonna make it through it all.”

Ebony is an alumna of the world-famous Walt Whitman and the Soul Children of Chicago, a group she joined in 2000 at age eight. In 2012, she was runner up, with more than 40,000 votes, in a contest held by Black Girls Run to sing the national anthem at their race. “Gotta Believe in Me” could well have been played as the Black Girls Run race began.
