Do you know your worth? I certainly do. At times it feels like we as humans fail to really see the value in others around us. Everyone has a story and we need to start listening.

This week I’m slowing it down a bit to bring you guys a Country tune from Tim McGraw. I have been a fan of his music for a while. I am finally sharing this song on the blog, because the message is one that is sorely needed in the world right now. Enjoy this little two step… “Humble and Kind”
I’ve been doing a little research for a new book and ran across this quote from Tim McGraw. I couldn’t agree more.
Welcome to another edition of Melanade, where we feature women of color who are doing great things! This month we are featuring the artistic genius
Singer, songwriter, mother, actress and fashion icon… all of these describe the artist known as Solange Knowles. When your name means “Angel of the sun” you are destined for greatness. This woman has a very eclectic mind that is able to translate the weary ways of the world into a beautiful tapestry of melodies and words. Quickly becoming a voice of her generation, Solo had taken her talent to new heights with her latest project “A Seat at the Table”. She won a Grammy for Best R&B Performance for “Cranes in the Sky” from the same album.
It can’t be easy carving out your own niche in the music industry when your big sis is slaying, but Solange makes it look easy. It reminds me of Janet breaking into her own star, being the little sis of the King of Pop. And just like Janet, Solange’s talent in undeniable and cannot be contained.
For a 30 year old, Solange has accomplished many goals that people twice her age have yet to do. Becoming a mother as a teen, she started her responsible years early, but she has handled her life amazingly. Not only does she write the amazing songs on her own albums, she is an accomplished writer for other artists as well. According to an interview with NecoleBitchie.com, she has written quite a few songs with Mariah Carey in mind and would love to have her sing her creations.
She’s had an undeniable influence on our culture from fashion, to being a proud black woman dawning her natural hair, and artistic movement. Don’t believe me? Listen to what intellectual Kimberly Foster has to say about her.
If you are not up on Solange, I urge you to get to know her. You’ll thank me later.
