I love music, I believe it a form of storytelling; it transmits passion, love,and also it encourages and inspires. I believe music transcends boundaries if Race, Gender and Age.
Music is fundamental, it seeps into your bones, tissue and blood, helps you to see the world clearer, well at least in my humble opinion.
So as it inspires, It can be inspired...there is separation the storyteller and his/her words and the musician, I believe need the other, feeds the others, aides the other.
So HerStory, which is a collection of stories that was inspired by the strength of women in history, has a theme that I have also viewed in music.
Below are songs and artist who also carry the theme in music of empowering and celebrating women...
