Bring The Beat In is a musical conversation hosted by Lena J., singer, journalist, and host of the Morgan News Hour.

In this episode, Lena J. explores blue-eyed soul, a term coined in the '60s referring to white artists performing rhythm and blues or soul music.

She talks about cultural appropriation and the prevalence of the genre in today's music.
