Last year I was invited to attend a luncheon where Tina Knowles would be the Key Note Speaker at a woman & money empowerment summit and I accepted the invitation for a reason; Tina intrigued me. I wanted to know what the mother of the most famous woman on the face of this universe had to say. I have been a fan of Beyonce since The Writings On the Wall, from when she was rocking her braids and making her debut into the music industry, and still think she is The Queen of all Queens. Aside from the obviously beautiful self that she is; I feel she speaks to the woman who grew up with her. I can honestly say that every time she released an album I was experiencing the same things she spoke about in her songs. I wasn't obviously living her lifestyle but I was almost the same age as her going through the same things we as women go through. I think all woman can relate!!
At the summit; I shared the video which I went on to publish to youtube and the video was shared by most all media outlets from @necolebitchiedaily @globalgrind to @Vogue) Thanks!
That day, Tina shared a beautiful story which she gifted to the ladies of the audience. What I didn't share on the video was that Tina was also gifted the honor by the Mayor Pro Tem and the Mayor of Houston Annise Parker who proclaimed October 2, 2014 to be #TinaKnowles Day in Houston!!
I wish I had met Tina and thanked her for such a powerful message that I myself needed to hear.
Soon after Beyonce who was inspired by her moms words - used a piece of my video in which her mother gives a bold statement... you can hear me agree by saying "mmmm-hmm" in the video below and in the actual song which I think IS super cool!! Maybe I will meet both Queens one day :) for now just watch this video of her mother being honored by the City of Houston.
