Inspiration For Your Ears & Soul: From Poetic Singers Adia Victoria and Gregory Porter to Faith in Action 

We could all use a little inspiration these days, huh? Here is what I am breathing in this week: 

I love discovering singers of color who break out of the traditional R&B / Hip- Hop box. Adia Victoria is not interested in anyone’s limitations; I recently started listening to her, and I am feeling the gritty, authentic  blues / rock / soul mix of  this music.

Gregory Porter brings so much depth and light to this NPR Tiny Desk concert series. His song “Take Me to the Alley” about seeing those among us who are suffering, truly seeing them, and extending genuine freindship, nearly brought me to tears.

Such a beautiful poem from Arielle Estoria on God’s boundless love for us at Inkfully, a lovely online magazine and community dedicated to empowering all  women to tell their stories and unique truths. I also loved Arielle’s piece on finding her voice as a woman of color.

Yes! Such an uplifting post (by ShaVaughn Morris) about tenacity and entrepreneurship on the blog of I Feel Pretty, Inc., a digital marketing & branding co. run by my girl Kayla.

Therapists helping folks heal from recent racial trauma.

The first-ever Olympic team made up entirely of refuges!

Check out this awesome series, “Blogging in His Light” from my girl Monica over at her blog, afrotasticlady. There are many gems in all of these interviews with bloggers of faith and divine purpose.
