India Arie

So yesterday my bestie was educating me on gospel music and some of her favorite singers, majority of them being black.  This lady definately stood out to me.  As a songwriter she touches on many issues and promotes good ethics.  Some of my favorite songs of hers include "Ghetto" which I got to sing back-up vocals for my friend Elika on International Justice Day.

The lyrics from her song "Video" touched me deeply.

I'm not the average girl from your video
and I ain't built like a supermodel
But, I learned to love myself unconditionally
Because I am a queen
