"I think that A Seat at the Table for me is an invitation to allow folks to pull up a chair, get very close and have these hard uncomfortable truths be shared. It’s not going to be pretty, it’s not going to be fun, you may not get to dance to it, you’re not going to breathe easily through it, but that is the state of the times that we’re in right now. It’s my invitation to actually open up those doors and to have that voice, get messy and lay out my truths and stand firm in them." -Solange, 2016
Today marks what would have been the 33rd birthday of the one and only Amy Winehouse. The artist's music was an eclectic blend of jazz, soul, and R&B that combined with her raw, honest lyrics to create music that would resonate within the hearts of anyone who heard it. While the world lost Amy 5 years ago, her strength and her story live on through her music.
