Looking at this Black Stars magazine cover from 1978 and reading the caption about me, I'm glad I didn't succumb to the doubts I had. Don't let fear hold you back from going out on your own. You have wings that need testing & faith to fortify you, so FLY! 🕊 #WednesdayWisdom

Looks like I was really "feeling it" at my @arshtcenter show! Great shot @worldredeye!

That moment I become all voice and sound by tapping into a supernova out in the galaxy or something. #VesselOfTotalSurrender

My pick for #FineWomenFriday is @missclatt_ . This young queen is one of the most ambitious, hard-working people I've ever met! Wishing her a happy birthday weekend. She's currently a junior at Benedict College and is holding down FOUR positions:
President of Kappa Beta Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Incorporated
President of Benedict-Byrd Section of National Council of Negro Women

Executive Vice President for National Society of Collegiate Scholars

Recording Secretary for Student Government Association

#TBT - Just throwing it back a year or two with a casual glam shot. Now this is #50shadesofgrey for yo azz!😉

Heaven on Earth won't be possible until we rid our minds of the fear & hatred causing us so much hell. #WednesdayWisdom

I'd like to dedicate this video teaser clip of "Walking Dream" to @raphael_saadiq for winning a GRAMMY award for his songwriting on @saintrecords "Cranes in the Sky." I hope our collaboration will have similar results this year. Happy Valentine's Day and my condolences to you and your family on the loss of your father!

Had such a great time doing @artonicemagic with these beautiful ladies!

@brunomars your Prince tribute at last night's #GRAMMYs was AMAZING! I'm so proud of you and I know my brother would have been as well. And @Adele, I have so much respect for you for stopping to get things right! Congrats on your wins!

Rest in power, Al Jarreau. You were EVERYTHING Jazz & beyond with an improvisational genius that was unrivaled. Love & prayers to his family & fans.

Remembering Whitney Houston. Pic taken in 1996 with @babyface. I Will Always Love You, little sister.❤😇🎤

My pick for #FineWomenFriday is the late Shirley Chisholm. If ever we needed more people like her in office, it's RIGHT NOW! #UnboughtAndUnbossed
