Erykah Badu (1971-present) When I was younger my mom always played music loud around the house while cleaning up. She kept stacks of cds in the car. Majority of the time we listened to female r&b artist. Growing up I was exposed to female singers like Mary J. Blige, Lauryn Hill, and Erykah Badu ect. The song I always enjoyed singing was “Tyrone” because it’s funny. The live performance for this song is very entertaining too because she’s a great performer and the band is great. Badu is very lyrical and some of her songs can be described as poetry. Her amazing creativity really stands out in the Def Jam Poetry. This is a performance I’ll always enjoy watching.

There’s no better feeling than being at a concert and jamming along to songs that you love while surrounded by people who share the same love for the music. Music concerts are majestic environments where a variety of different people come together in order to share their love of music. A few weeks ago I attended a Zac Brown Band concert for the first time and I was truly inspired by the band’s artistry and skill. The band was fully able to captivate their audience with their soulful tunes and obvious passion for performing. One moment of the concert that particularly stood out to me was when the band performed a cover of The Beatles hit song “Let it Be.” Zac Brown Band was able to stay true to the original song while bringing a whole different level of soul to the music through the addition of a gospel choir. The audience immediately related to the song and came together to sing along to a song by one of the biggest bands in music history. Zac Brown Band was able to successfully deliver such a powerful song as “Let it Be” which was off of The Beatles final studio album.

In 1968, a group of insurgent feminists rallied out to gather around other women to help in a protest to fight against the hegemony of girls’ beauty in the annual Miss America’s Beauty Pageant. No More Miss America was an iconic pamphlet made to call attention to multiple degrading aspects of the beauty pageant. In it, Robin Morgan, a feminist protestor herself, argues against the dominant ideology of beauty in society. The New York Radical Women first thought of making this movement after realizing how the annual Miss America’s Beauty pageants were so similar to livestock competitions at county fairs. To prove this, the women put beauty pageant sashes on sheep and walked them around the boardwalk. The organization went through great trouble to protest their
