Sometimes growth means facing the truth of who we are... perfectly imperfect. I wrote the song “Perfect” & came up with the video concept to highlight how we often live illusions, to remind us that “all that glitters isn’t gold”. But even when we take off the masks, let down our guard, reveal our truths, we have to love ourselves & push toward being better but also embrace all the dents and flaws. Sending you all light and energy of acceptance, confidence, & freedom!

Crazy to think it’s been 6yrs since I was selected (6 are picked out of 60+ applicants) to be in this elite music/artist development program! I’ve learned so much from it and gained a musical family/network that I continue to love & work with to this day! The benefits have been endless. I highly recommend local DC artists who could use artist development apply! Check their site for more info.This picture also reminds me of the longtime friendship/partnership I began with my dear sista @denisiotruitt . This yellow was the start of our longtime work together having her as my main designer for shows/shoots ect. Denisio literally took a thrifted frumpy prom dress & transformed it into this elegant sexy look for my photoshoot. This was the just the beginning as now she’s basically designed almost all of my Grammy & stage looks over the years. What started out as a business relationship has blossomed into true sisterhood and love. I owe so much to her AND Strathmore in my musical journey. Congratulations to the new AIRS of 2018/2019 which include several of my dear friends & much love to all the past AIRS, we’re all out here making our marks on the scene. Here’s to a bright and beautiful future! (Shout out to @jonathantimmes for this amazing shoot in the @strathmorearts mansion where we AIRS perform our month long residency in the program) #goborago #musiceducation #performanceresidency #foreverayellowlover #strathmorearts #network #learn #grow #teamboneylegs #artistdevelopment #thefunkyAIR #classicwoman #queenin #regalblackbeauty #memorylane

This past Friday-Sun I supported Tony Award winning legend @melba1moore ! 6 performances in 3 days and oh was it a blast!! I also has the honor of performing the national anthem for the DC Special Olympics Opening Ceremony/Tennis match last week. Such a special moment for me because my sister used to compete in the Special Olympics when we were kids! So nice to be a part of this and share my voice as an adult! In between shows I caught my dear friends and musical collaborators rock a packed Chuck Brown Park to celebrate Chuck Brown Day with his original band! It was a beautiful sight to see everyone out there full of love for The Godfather of Go-Go music! Big love to @treysorrells @ejbjazz @franksirius & @drekingbeats ! They held it down! & yesterday before my final show with Melba, I serenaded my brunch regulars and newcomers at @bin1301dc accompanied by @zo3hree5ive & @treysorrells ! Woooo! What a week!

What I love about this video is that she is showing her belting side, she can be as sweet and gentle as a bird and then wow you with her power too! Woo!!!! 🙌🏾 Still learning from the Queen “Nippy”. Classy and sassy! We love you Whitney Houston, Happy Birthday!!

Growing up with a chef in my household I’ve always been drawn to those who could give you a new and interesting perspective on food. He was one of a kind. Late bloomer to the industry but a natural Star right off the break. That always gave me hope. I was addicted to his show, his way of connecting food & culture & definitely his rock star edge! I pray for his family and close friends. Sigh... let’s pray for the people of this world too. We are all carrying our share of personal bags on our shoulders. Give love & be understanding. #RIP #anthonybourdain #depressionisreal #spiritualwar #givelight #compassion #foodie #documentarian #socialmediacancausedepression #beaware #stateoftheworld

Heeeeeey June, don’t make it bad... take a sad song & make it better...!!!! Peeps! May was a rough month. Said goodbye to one of my favorite people on the planet (Grandma), saw the bad side of some people I love, found myself in a bit of a melancholy head space, even took a social media break (much needed, geez over posting is REAL, some of y’all need to chill) but it’s a new day. June is here, DC is hot, & I’m choosing to see the sun no matter what! I ended May doing what I love, working on new music with talented people & sharing the stage with one of my favorite vocalists! A reminder that music always heals. June is shaping up to bring on many fun stage moments including a reunion with my brothers/Producer’s/bandmates Third Logic performing at Sotto on 6/28! Y’all know I’m a natural optimist & there’s so much to be thankful for so I’m gonna keep smiling big and sharing that love!! Send me alil extra light y’all!! Let’s Go!

We are so blessed to have had you 99 years yet in this moment I feel like the little girl you spent so many days with. I’m still going to want our breakfast chats and our silly laughs. I’m gonna miss that high sweet southern voice & the way you said my name. And that amaaaaazing food. I’m so glad I was able to see you Sunday, rub your head, look deep into your eyes and watch you light up with a smile...and then alil chuckle! I know what was especially for me.♥️ Sigh... I’m so grateful for the many many memories. Hazel Street will never be the same. Your spirit will carry us through. Until I see you again, I’m thankful to have said goodbye for now. I love you with all my heart. 😔🙏🏾💔

They brought the house down AS USUAL & I have to admit I was totally having a fan girl moment even after performing in a world tour with them in 2016! Seeing them again from the audience perspective reminded me of how powerful this band truly is. I’m still in awe of the levels of talent in this collective! To sweeten the deal, they are some of the most fun loving, humble, down to earth cats around! So much love to my musical papa bear “Bluey” who took a chance, brought me in on their #insearchofbetterdaystour and allowed me to see places in the world I could’ve never imagined with a band I looked up to for so long! And to my sis @maysaleakmusic you are truly a force with a beautiful signature all your own! Still can’t believe I’ve shared the stage with a Maryland hometown legend!! I love this entire collective and am so honored to be in the family!! Here’s to new music, collaborations, more amplified soul, & big adventures! #goborago #incognito #UKLove #uksoul #bigbands #jazzfunksoul #blueymanuick #goodpeoples #family #bonded #memories #lovemusic #deborahbond #goodvibesON
