*US Senator Kamala Harris, a Democrat from California, released her summer playlist, and her catalogue ranges from hip-hop to soulful classics by Al Green and the Jackson 5.
Her list of tunes comes just in time to commemorate African-American Music Appreciation Month.
“Our nation has an indelible soundtrack, songs that have become anthems recognized across the world. Much of that soundtrack is inspired and informed by the vast contributions of African-American artists in jazz, R&B, rap, hip-hop, and beyond,” she said in a statement.

“No matter where you are from or what you look like, music is a bond that can bring us all together. To celebrate African-American music is to dance, sing, and even march to the rhythms that have long served as vehicles for honesty, inspiration, struggle, success and joy,” said Harris.
Senator Kamala Harris, 52, made headlines recently when Republican senators interrupted her at a hearing of the Senate Intelligence Committee while she interrogated Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
She is the second black woman to be elected to the U.S Senate and there’s some Washington chatter that suggests she could be a future candidate for president.
