to Motivational Monday at JAMBOX studios! Today, I would like to do a shout-out
to two inspirational young ladies who wowed everybody at yesterday’s Grammys:
Chloe X Halle. Their rendition of “Where is the Love”, a song originally made
famous by the legendary Donny Hathaway, was definitely one of the show’s biggest
musical highlights for me.
duo’s journey started on YouTube 10 years ago, when they were uploading various
performances at just 8 and 6 years old, respectively. In 2015, they suddenly
took the internet by storm with their beautiful cover of Beyoncé’s “Pretty
Hurts”, and even Queen B herself took notice. Bey shared the video on her
Facebook page and soon had her label, Parkwood Entertainment, reach out to the
girls to sign them. Since then, the siblings have been included in the Lemonade
visual album alongside superstars like Serena Williams, Zendaya and Amandla
Stenberg, and have even joined Beyoncé on her Formation tour. Chloe X Halle
released their debut album “The Kids Are Alright” in March 2018 and earned
their first two career Grammy nominations for “Best Urban Contemporary Album”
and “Best New Artist”. Although they did not win in either category yesterday, they
are still winners in my book, and I can’t wait to see where their journey will
take them next. Many other inspirational stories unfolded in front of our eyes
last night, with underdog Kacey Musgraves winning “Album of the Year” (among
others) and Cardi B being the first female solo act to be honored with the Grammy
for “Best Rap Album”.
takeaway should be that if you have a dream, make the first step, no matter how
small it seems. You may think that you are not talented enough, that you need
more time to polish your craft, you may be waiting for things to fall in place.
Yet, nowadays you can get very far with enough determination and willingness to
put yourself out there.
