“A cop who sings” I can’t lie! It’s truly hard stepping out on faith. When I start singing at these events it’s usually 2 or 3 people.
Each time I start my set it’s 1000 things going through my mind. “Yo did I practice enough?“ “Ali you better stay in the key bro! ”. I’m always nervous. I’ll be the 1st to tell you that stepping out your comfort zone is very difficult. I was afraid to sing in uniform for years! I was afraid of what people may think, “As an artist, I’m sensitive about my ish” @erykahbadu
In the words of @willsmith
“The greatest things are on the other side of fear”.
Now! I realize it’s no longer just about me, it’s about the citizens of Philly. People are coming together, the community is engaging with police. It’s no drama, no stress just music & positive energy. It’s so much going on in my city & the world but for once people can forget about the daily life stress and just enjoy being in the moment. I never thought I would be here but it’s truly a blessing 🙏🏽 Thank you God. Be the change you wish to see. 📸 @nightshadeimages
