Thanks to all who helped make this a success. Thank you to God and all the stars in the universe that aligned for this.
I continue to grow and evolve though always consistent in being true to myself. It may not be the most popular – but as you get older and look back to see how far you’ve come..as a woman in this game to see the no nonsense authenticity. In fact the entertainment industry and media rarely embraces that. Women are often marginalized. I was aware enough thought still finding my way in letting it be known I’m no ingenue but always a woman taking agency over her career and life.
Generally media prefers vapid sexist stereotypes and lack of substance to this day..I’ve never played that game – always recognizing what’s important in the scheme of things – paramount is to always be true to yourself.
I write a lot about love..and always try to live a life of love and what I exude not just as an artist but human being. Love to all, love into the world, love yourself. Thank you to those who show me love by supporting what I do. Love is – an action word.
Some of my favorite songs about love through the decades in my catalog — though all of my songs have meaning in my journey, some more than others.
