Juno-nominated artist Tanika Charles stopped by q's live show to perform the title track from her latest album, Soul Run, last night at the Bronson Centre Theatre.
After performing the track, Charles told the story behind the powerful track.
"I was in a relationship that was questionable and I packed all my things in the middle of the night," she tells Tom Power. "I saw the truck, put everything in there, keys in the ignition.... I didn't know how to drive stick.
"So I got as far as the top of the driveway and I had to get my brother to pick me up. It was really embarrassing but I got out and all is good!"
