From the time I started to appreciate music, I remember falling in love with Soul & R&B. I remember having artists like Floetry, India Arie, Musiq Soulchild, Anthony Hamilton, Alicia Keys, & Erykah Badu on constant replay. I remember my younger cousin always asking me, "What are you listening to?" and not in a good way lol. But I felt the music run through my veins and inspire me as a person. Then I started writing my own poetry...and the rest is history.
One Person that I admire a lot is Ms. Lauryn Hill. I love her voice, her style, her way of being, her rhymes, her words......and the list goes on.
For the last few years I've been anticipating her come back. Not sure if we can confirm she is officially back, but she finally has some shows lined up. Me and my sisters were privileged enough to go to a show this past Saturday.
Unfortunately, I was a little disappointed in the show for different reasons...but I can't trash talk too much because I still felt honored to be in the presence of someone who has and still does inspire me. Im grateful for the experience and will definitely be on the look out for future shows.
