    ARTISTdirect is pleased to team up with Naomi Wachira to premiere "Sacred Love" from her self-titled debut.

    "I wrote 'Sacred Love' after a conversation with my daughter and was overcome with the realization that I have never loved another human being the way I love her and that we share a bond that is so unique and unending. The way I feel about her can only be described as 'Sacred Love...' It's pure, it's redeeming, it's challenging, it's heart-wrenching and comforting. Simply, it's a song that expresses a mother/daughter bond."

    What a beautiful sentiment!

    Some Naomi Wachira intel: Naomi was voted Seattle's Best Folk Singer by readers of Seattle Weekly. She's from Kenya, but lives in the U.S. and is inspired by Miriam Makeba and Tracy Chapman. Her album was produced by Damien Jurado.

    With that in mind, get "Sacred!"

    How much did you dig "Sacred Love?"

    -Maggie Pannacione
