It is AWE-inspiring to witness the artist community coming together to raise awareness and inspire change by dedicating their time, art and deeds to the fight to empower women world wide. I am humbled by the messages, energy and the beauty which they are bringing to the world to light the way for peace and fulfillment to women and men, girls and boys.

They are proving time and time again through the synergies -women and men from different musical genres as well as various artistic backgrounds & roles- they are creating that change is not only possible, but inevitable.

Thank you, Beyoncé, for placing your signature on this and other events as well as campaigns to empower us. To all those in the public arena sharing their light to effect positive and deep change, thank you.
