HOW TAMMY HENDRIX GOT STARTED
“I grew up writing music. When I hit college I didn't really write as much as I would've liked and I would never imagine that lil ol' ME would be pulling together music shows. But once I completed my Masters, I just knew I had to make moves. And once I got through my first music show, it was up from there. Sometimes I get deep in my feelings because I think maybe I should have not gone to college... maybe I could have been further. But I truly believe all of my steps were ordered and I took that path for a reason.”
Tammy explains: “The man wakes up early every day... and I mean 4 a.m. early, to make sure he can provide. I work hard so I can at least give him HALF of what he's given me.”
When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid. –Audre Lorde
