Because I’m Happy!

Happy for those who use their voice and their art on a national platform to be the change they want for the world:

  • Domestic abuse survivor Brooke Axtell using spoken word. Her voice making a powerful statement to raise awareness of the insipid violence, especially against women.  She closed with these words:

“Your voice will save you. Let it extend into the night.  Let it part the darkness.  Let is set you free to know who you truly are – valuable, beautiful, loved.”

  • Prince’s words prior to announcing the album of the year winner:

“Like books and black lives, albums still matter.”

When we do our work, when we make our art, #ItsOnUs, as POTUS says in his message, “to go as far as our talents and dreams will take us.”

Whether standing on or off a national platform, when you go as far as your talents and dreams will take your perfectly perfect self, you can and will be the change you want for the world.

Be Happy! Be the Change! Glory for All!

    I loved the song this year. I loved how rockers had violins playing in the background. and I love how voices were raised about how lives count and how good it feels to survive abuse. Well said, my friend.

      It was absolutely amazing to hear and watch Brooke speak with such passion and compassion – completely moved by her. I also love the Happy song and now especially love how it has been taken to new heights!
