I love how creative this is! She weaves sci-fi with 80's fashion, and has a super eclectic sound. I feel like a lot of people will be drawn to this project, because she has R&B sounds, Pop sounds, and even Hip-Hop. I wasn't expecting this from Janelle Monáe, but it really shows a different side, and shows more of her artistry.
I'm a huge fan of Beyonce! I wish I could have witnessed this live at the annual Coachella Festival! She's the greatest entertainer. Ever! Period.
Life your truth, and don't betray yourself. I've been there. I've had a job I was really giving my all to, and the positive changes I was trying to make were not appreciated. I was not growing, and I came home each day drained. I was losing myself, and now I realized that I was betraying myself! I was giving my life to a job that was giving nothing back to me. Now, I am doing work that I enjoy, and that I learn and grow from each and every day.
I absolutely love this "emotion picture" - from the lyrics, to the visuals, the fashion, everything! So great! She's so creative.
Vivian Green's A Love Story album is one of my favorites of all time. I grew up listening to here constantly, and she definitely influenced my sound as a vocalist. Lately, I revisited her music and studied her live performances, and am just learning from her even more. She has a strong higher register and somewhat light voice, like me. As a vocal coach and an artist, I think it's so beneficial to find singers that have similar ranges and tones as me. I work to master song after song. I love that she has stayed true to her sound throughout her career. Her music is influencing me all over again.
It was so amazing to watch such musical geniuses create music! #RobertGlasper #LalahHathaway #EsperanzaSpalding
Here's a vid of me performing my original song at the Music N Vibez event at DS17 Lounge in Atlanta! This song is titled "Lost Memories," and the idea was sparked at an awesome songwriting workshop I went to several months ago!
I've been studying Ledisi for the past couple of weeks! It's refreshing hearing her story and hearing about her musical influences. I definitely hear all the styles and tones in her music.
My life is a song still being written...watch my lyrics evolve.
