Inspiration from A Phenomenal Woman Dr. Maya Angelou

There’s a dream that beats in the depths of your heart, a song YOU were created to sing – and when you muster the courage to step out and be bold, with Love you can do anything…

I was immensely inspired by the remembrance service for Dr. Maya Angelou, one of my greatest creative and life influences. Above is a snippet of a poem “Empowered by Her” that I originally wrote for my friend Kara’s special birthday celebration during Women’s History Month this year.

I thought about Dr. Angelou’s impact on my writing and poetry as I was making the full video which I will launch, and how her voice will live on in those she empowered. I found my voice and am becoming brave enough to overcome the fear of rejection to live differently because she was bold enough to live and dream on purpose…

Watch the Memorial Service of Dr. Maya Angelou Held on June 7, 2014

Dr. Maya Angelou is one of the most inspirational women to grace this earth and the epitome of a phenomenal woman. I love that she lived boldly and was herself, showing us how to live on purpose. The world will always remember her voice and legacy. Below are some of my favorite words from this remarkable woman:

mayaangelou

“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.” – Maya Angelou

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” – Maya Angelou

I love this quote and how it reminds me of how what may appear beautiful (or successful and esteemed) may have been molded through a long period of trial, darkness, growth and solitude. What we believe to be an over night success is never really made over night. There’s always a journey that shapes us, and a process that graces us to achieve true beauty.

“The caged bird sings with a fearful trill of things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on the distant hill for the caged bird sings of freedom.” – Maya Angelou

“We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what their color…” “It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.” – Maya Angelou

mayaangeloucreativeThe Dream In Color African American Heritage project is sponsored by Target and Scholastic, Inc. It features various videos of Renaissance woman Dr. Maya Angelou, poet, educator, historian, best-selling author, actress, playwright, civil-rights activist, producer and director. Here are some of her words from the video entitled “How can students find their creative voice?”

mayaangelouinterviewDr. Maya Angelou: “I would say to young people and to old people or upper middle age, that we have seriously crippled ourselves and our children by telling people, ‘don’t try all these different things. You’ll become a jack of all trades and a master of none’. That’s ridiculous. You can become the master of everything. The best you can be.

“You know, we don’t understand talent. We don’t understand electricity. We probably use about one millionth of one billionth percent of the electricity around us. However, you can plug into two little holes in the wall, or three. You can light up a church, a cathedral, a synagogue, a temple. You can light up a surgery. You can light up a…a bedroom. Or you can electrocute a person strapped in a chair. Electricity makes no demands. It says if you are intelligent you will use me intelligently. If you’re not, you will use me destructively. But I’m here.

Inspiring ENT: Kina Grannis Sings “Genevieve” for Girl Rising and a “Happy” Cover

Singer Kina Grannis has dedicated her inspiring song “Genevieve” to the Girl Rising project, a movement dedicated to raising awareness and funds for girls’ education worldwide, and whose mission is to change the way the world values girls. I’ve been following Kina’s journey to following her dreams for the past few years and am inspired by how high she has risen and how she’s giving back to help others.

I also love Kina’s clever and creative cover of the song “Happy” originally by Pharrell -it’ll get you dancing and…happy!

About Kina Grannis – The Journey to Following Her Dreams

Pop/rock songwriter Kina Grannis began exploring music as a child in Mission Viejo, CA.

After spending her younger years performing in front of her stuffed animals and singing with her sisters, Grannis discovered her aunt’s guitar at age 15. She received her own guitar the following year and spent a month honing her songwriting skills, taking influence from the likes of Jason Mraz and Vertical Horizon. Her songwriting efforts continued at the University of Southern California, where she was selected by the Thornton School of Music to produce a six-song EP during her sophomore year. The resulting EP, Sincerely, me., was released in 2005. Two years later, she recorded a song for Rachael Lawrence and Deborah Ellen that became heavily featured in several episodes of General Hospital.

After graduating from USC, Grannis relocated to Austin, TX, to sing and record with a band. She also began uploading her performances to YouTube, which helped her win a Superbowl contest in 2008. A contract with Interscope Records followed, but Grannis returned to indie status shortly thereafter without releasing anything on the label. Instead, she self-released her first full-length album, Stairwells, in February 2010, cracking the Billboard 200 in the process. ~ Katherine Fulton

Kina’s latest album “Elements” will be out May 6 with a current soulful single “The Fire” currently available on iTunes.
