I happened to come across the music of Kirby Lauryen through a Natural Chica reader and I was so grateful to have been introduced to her music! When I visited her YouTube channel, I was impressed when I learned that she had decided to take part in a "Song A Day" challenge, where she not only was writing new lyrics, but playing the piano and singing a new tune every day!
Meet Kirby Lauryen
The Last IsleWhat have you learned from this process and what have been some of your most memorable moments as a result of this project?Song A Day has taught me it’s ok to not be perfect. That people are looking for honest, they’re looking for relatable, they’re looking for themselves in you. And when they see a piece of who they are in you, you gain a priceless connection.
HE’MotionalWow, one of my favorite moments was the opportunity to open up for MIGUEL & the opportunity to perform at SOBS in NYC . Most importantly, connecting with people and hearing people say “ I cried listening to this “ or “you literally sang my life.” I’ll never forget moments like that.We'd love to hear about your natural hair journey! Any favorite products or styles?Going natural was the best thing I ever did regarding my hair. My mother & sister went natural first, and I couldn’t get into it. But in 2010 I decided to stop getting relaxers. My favorite method is the BRAID OUT AFTER BLOW OUT courtesy of THE NATURAL CHICA. I absolutely love that style, It gives me length and volume. I use Shea Moisture products and I just recently used Hair Rules which I loved!BIG CHOP video.” It’s amazing to see life come full circle. You have inspired so many young girls to be bold & to be beautiful. Thank you for that! (Mae: I am truly humbled to hear that!
