Filming Brave Girl, October 8, 2020
What an incredible day.
The 14-year-old in me was in shock and celebrating how far I’ve come. While growing up, I was discouraged from someone close to me from “being a singer”, as I was “not talented enough.” It confirmed what I already thought. At 18, my drummer friend Lionel Dupperon said, “WHEN you do it, don’t do it to say ‘I told you so’ - do it to make them proud”. I haven’t seen Lionel since, but I still think of his words, often. Regardless of how others feel, God is proud.
Now at 47, I was releasing my album “Brave Girl”, and filming my first live video. Once we finished filming, I got in my car and met a friend to celebrate the day. Sitting there in our booth, I bawled over my beer and nachos, proud of what I had to overcome to get here.
I'm still climbing...
Thank you for watching and sharing this special video. The response has been amazing, hearing from women and girls, survivors of abuse, and their stories of healing and hope.
