Black Music Appreciation Month: The Divas

Photo by bruce mars on

When I was growing, it was not necessarily about the singer but about the artist, the persona, the music. A true musician with the craft, class, and talent to shine was a DIVA!

These women were diabolical and undeniable. I wanted to honor the women who were the DIVAS and still maintain that title. These black women empowered and influenced me. As a black woman, negative stereotypes dehumanize our experience. I have heard it all. But seeing women who looked like me performing on grand stages and audiences made me believe in my own abilities as a singer and as a person.

Diana Ross, Patti Labelle, Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone, Whitney Houston, Beyonce, Aaliyah, Mariah Carey, Tina Turner, Ella Fitzgerald, Natalie Cole, Etta James, Gladys Knight, Anita Baker, Donna Summer, Lauryn Hill, Sade

It’s a small list but a DYNAMITE LIST! Of course, I will be giving you a playlist.
