Singer, Songwriter Hall of Fame inductee, Producer, and our 2014 Visionary Linda Perry (@reallindaperry) inspires us through the incredible music she gives to the world, often through amazing collaborations with fellow fierce female artists like Christina Aguilera for the song “Beautiful” and P!nk with “Get The Party Started.” .
Linda’s HEAVEN was all about harmony, as she says: “Harmony is, I think, one of the most powerful ways to embrace unity because it’s not about self, it’s about joining together and creating an element of connection and oneness amongst all.” We couldn’t agree more- here’s to creating harmony in the world together! 🎶💪🏽 #WCW #HEAVEN #Visionary #ArtHeals #WomensHistoryMonth #TheArtofElysium
