For my birthday, my sweet, thoughtful husband got us VIP tickets to see my favorite music artist India Arie. We got to watch them set up the concert and do sound checks, and then we got to meet her briefly before the show, it was really great…
Maybe it was because I was 8 months pregnant at the time, and my emotions were pretty heightened but I had tears pouring down my cheeks for most of the show.
The reason she is my favorite artist is because her lyrics really touch my soul… She speaks the same language I do. The way she knows herself and loves herself is such a reminder and inspiration, I truly recommend her to everyone.
If you are in need of a “pick-me-up” or just some joyful inspiration, I trust her songs will help you re-connect with your spiritual center. At least it always works for me!
India has such deep insight and vulnerability in her words, and often starts songs from a reflective or pained or difficult emotional state and eventually brings herself back to her truth, her light. If you haven’t listened to any of her songs, here are a few from her four albums I recommend to get you hooked :). Enjoy!
