“I consider my musical ability to be a gift from the Creator. It’s not that I try to work hard or nothing like that, it’s a gift, it was given to me, and I appreciate it.”

“I believed in myself, and I’ve always worked very, very hard as an artist, and I am an artist in every sense of the word.”

“I don’t feel like I need to preach to the world or nothing like that. I just feel like I share what I say, and if listeners get it, they get it. And I never underestimate the audience’s ability to feel me.”

“Personally, I don’t choose any particular religion or symbol or group of words or teachings to define me. That’s between me and the most high. You know, my higher self. The Creator.”

“What does music mean to me? I don’t think I would really be much without it, without it coming through me. It’s my means of communication, my means of growth, my means of transportation from one point in my life to another.”

“Hopefully my music is medicine, some type of antidote for something or some kind of explanation or just to feel good.”

“As Erykah Badu, it has nothing to do with me, the way I look, my hair wrap, my style, it’s about you and what you feel for my music. If I can make you feel like the way that people who influenced me made me feel, that’s completion.”

Happy 41st Birthday to singer-songwriter, record producer, activist and actress Erica Abi Wright , better known by her stage name Erykah Badu (b. February 26, 1971)

I love her and grateful to be alive to hear her music . blessed
