NEW YORK — SheaMoisture has released the brand’s latest campaign for Father’s Day – A Father’s Lullaby. The pioneering beauty and personal care brand is partnering with rapper Taylor Bennett to unveil an original lullaby (written and sung by Emmy-nominated songwriter, Kareem James) and announce a digital campaign, content series and viral social challenge.
“I’m proud to team up with SheaMoisture Men for their latest campaign, A Father’s Lullaby,” says Bennett. “As a father, speaking power and legacy into my children and cultivating an individual bond with them is what’s most important and rewarding for me. The lullaby which SheaMoisture Men created with Kareem James embodies the intimate connection that we as men have with our children, and I hope that it brings listeners to a place of comfort and care.”
The original lullaby, titled “Light Inside of You”, features lyrics that use uplifting affirmations to deliver confirmation of power, protection, and love from father to child, providing an uplifting lullaby made by Black men for Black men that speaks directly to their experience of fatherhood.
