The Maya Angelou I Knew

I was honored to be asked by CNN to write something about one of my heroes Maya Angelou. http://www.cnn.com/2014/06/06/opinion/mcbride-maya-angelou/index.html

One response to The Maya Angelou I Knew

  1. Well written, Martina. It came from your heart. Most of your music speaks the same language as that which Maya wrote and spoke. Please continue to carry the torch. As Maya made(makes)a difference so do you Martina. Please don’t ever forget it.
    In concert you often make mention of how God blessed you with a beautiful singing voice, and this is so true. What you don’t say and which is so true also is that he gave you the great singing voice not for the music but He gave you this gift so that you could be front and center and offer the very same hope, wisdom and faith that Maya put forth for so many years. Thank you for the article in CNN.
