As a young performer my modality for greatness were the greats like Aretha, Whitney, Andrea Bocelli & Pavarrotti. I always want to improve, no matter what.
I have also learned to not underestimate any performance moment. Even at Karaokee, or with friends. Magic could happen anywhere.
I can’t stand mediocrity. Despite my health challenges; I will try my best. Despite bad sound, poor engineering, poor sound check and levels. Despite the ignorance of humans, I will still push beyond my pain.
So, if you are an artiste, quit day dreaming and do the hard work. Bad managers blowing smoke up your behind when you have no substance will get you no where creatively.
An old friend of mine, a very seasoned sensational, award winning, westend musical theatre vocalist, who reprised the roles of Ella Fitzgerald and sorts; told me a long time ago: that her singing teacher always said to her –
“Do the work first and take the bow’s later”.

Black communites shun mental health often. When I read about these challenges from a fellow artiste, I was
very happy that someone felt like me. Such a relief. Concious & unconcious bias needs to be talked about.
So much more could be done to break the stereotype of silence and mis education about mental health.

Depression & sleep attacks can be mind, body and soul crippling. Music helps always giving me life to self-love. The ignorance is deadly. Some days I feel on top of the world and some days; I just want to disappear underneath it. So, I stay in love. Daily find to remind my #mind.
