what Thanksgiving means to some Oakland personalities and leaders.)

London is Oakland’s own soulful singer, signed to the legendary Motown Records.

Best known for his songs “Back to the Way” and “Action,” he recently collaborated with fellow Oakland native Mistah Fab for “She Don’t Belong to Me.”

What are you doing this Thanksgiving?

be spending the holiday season right in Oakland with my family. I try
to make sure I’m around them for the holidays since I be out on the road
doing shows and recording. My father’s birthday is Christmas so that’s
always cool.

Favorite holiday food?

My favorite food is turkey (fried) for Thanksgiving and the honey ham for Christmas.
