What better way to retire than listening to the smooth vocals of TRAEDONYA!

TRAEDONYA! (AKA The Bride of New Funk Hipopera) who is a Bronx raised vocalist celebrates New York Yankee‘s great Derek Jeter, with a very personal visual that takes you back to Sept 27th 2014 at Yankee stadium on Mr. Jeter’s last day playing at the stadium. The visual features real Yankee fans emotionally discussing him. It is currently exclusively on Facebook.

TRAEDONYA! like her fellow New Yorkers that day, was feeling a deep sadness yet managing to still celebrate his 20 years in NYC. There were so many people at the stadium who had grew up with him.

Derek Jeter Retires from the New York Yankees

TRAEDONYA! Releases new single, ‘My Favorite Guy’ featuring Derek Jeter.

This past Sunday, the ball player retired his number and left fans all over emotional as he delivered his speech.

 “I was asked recently if I could trade places with one person, who it would be,” Jeter said in his address. “There isn’t a person or player I would trade places with that’s playing now or ever. And the reason why I say that is because I got a chance to play for a first-class organization and in front of the greatest fans in the history of sports.”

“You know, you play here in New York for 20 years,” he said. “I learned that time flies, memories fade, but family is forever—and I’ll be eternally grateful to be a part of the Yankees family, so I can’t thank you guys enough. Thank you very much.”

TRAEDONYA! releases ‘My Favorite Guy‘ featuring Derek Jeter.

While outside Yankee stadium she witnessed the sorrow and sullen expressions on people’s faces that touched her deeply. From that experience the song, “My Favorite Guy” was imagined. I saw that he was New York City’s Favorite Guy that day. “I am not a baseball fan but I know who Derek Jeter is”, says TRAEDONYA!

The song is a soulful piano driven song anchored by TRAEDONYA’S sweet vocals. The song is the soundtrack for the visual. Check out the video below and more information about her.
