“You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.” – Maya Angelou

Celebrating Women Through Song

Tuesday, March 8, 2022 is International Women’s Day (IWD). The theme for this year’s event is “Break the Bias – Celebrating women’s achievements, raising awareness against bias, and taking action for equality.”

I can think of no better way to raise awareness and celebrate women’s achievements than through song. Therefore, I decided to host a music festival at my venue in the virtual world of Second Life. The festival will feature 13 female singer/songwriters performing as avatars. Yes, that’s right. They will be broadcasting LIVE from their homes around to the world, but will appear on my Second Life stage as avatars.

I will also be writing a profile about each of these amazing women on my Pass Along Songs Substack. Take a look here:
