True music fans love artist can perform live. Solange fits that mole as she brings her creativity to full life whenever she performs.
In a recent interview, Solange opened up about a life-changing event that altered her life, and prepare her for the life as an artist. The songstress originally grew up believing that she would have a successful dance career. Unfortunately after injuring herself and tearing her meniscus at the age of 15. Due to her injury, she found comfort in the studio as an observer.
The singer went on to say that she was extremely blessed with her voice despite her initial dreams of being a dancer came to an end.
“I would go to any studio session that anyone would let me sit in, and I would watch and I would study. I was extremely lucky and privileged that I had that kind of access, but I think about these landmarks —how this devastating thing turned into the thing that I actually do now, which turned into what I’m actually doing presently, which is incorporating my mess into my work and how any one of those moments I could have just completely surrendered.”
Even with her ability to sing, she originally thought that she would just be a songwriter.
“You know, I never thought that I actually had such a great voice. I thought that I was a really strong songwriter, I thought I had a really strong vision, but I just did not believe in my voice enough yet, so I worked really hard the art of developing a song.”
