Rapper, singer, author, and monologist Dessa has had a busy couple of days - as part of her evergreen campaign for her new album 'Chime,' she sang the National Anthem at the WNBA All-Star Game in Minneapolis on Saturday, released a touching, poetic, eulogy dedicated to her grandmother with the lyric video for "I Hope I'm Wrong", which premiered with The Current on Monday, and gave fans a glimpse into her hectic world in her Facebook #ArtistoftheDay video yesterday.
