India Arie, Singer-songwriter, actress, musician, and record producer
"I had a chance to have a conversation with Dr. Angelou. And at the end of our conversation I said, ‘If there’s just one thing you want me to know, what would it be?' And she said, ‘I have risked everything to just tell the truth. India, just tell the truth.’ That’s when it started to really resonate. Telling the truth is not just what you say. It’s how you show up. It’s making honest decisions. It’s being your truth.”
India has sold 10 million records worldwide and has won four Grammy Awards.
