Answer this: How have you made the world a better place today? It was an incredible evening @glblctzn festival #sponsored by @citibank. My favorite part was the people. It’s so apparent how beautifully cohesive art and social action can be. They are universal treasures, rights, longings. We sing and speak out, sometimes alone and sometimes together, about struggles and loves so personal, and yet so infinitely the same.
So sing with abandon, speak with passion. Close your eyes and listen with your whole heart. We have so many challenges that require both in this world. Thank you to the musicians, but also to the incredible list of doctors, governors, UN representatives, women, girls, poets, and other guest speakers. So many languages spoken, so many stories that reached into my core and really asked me to never stop believing that my words - spoken or sung - have immense power to create change. Long after the music quieted, their voices are the symphony still ringing in my ears. #GCFest #takeaction #NYC
