I love being creative! After finishing up my work yesterday, I began creating a new promo video for Growing Up Black in America. I was thinking of the best way to incorporate Katy Perry's song 'ROAR' as it is the theme song of my life. Some of the lyrics include, "I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath, scared to rock the boat and make a mess. So I sat quietly, agreed politely. I guess that I forgot I had a choice I let you push me past the breaking point. I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything. You held me down, but I got up, already brushing off the dust. You hear my voice, you hear that sound, like thunder gonna shake your ground. You held me down, but I got up. Get ready cause I've had enough. I see it all, I see it now. I got the eye of the tiger, the fighter, dancing through the fire. 'Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me ROAR. Louder, louder than a lion cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me ROAR." This is currently my favorite song and it describes my life so much. I also sat quietly, almost mute and did not voice my opinion. Therefore, everyone else's opinion clouded my judgment. NO MORE. MY BOOK IS MY ROAR! So below is the video, it is copyrighted content so YouTube will block it, therefore it will not be posted on social media. I'm not making any money whatsoever from the video and will not because it is not my material it all belongs to Katy Perry. I only added myself and the book into the video with a few special effects. ENJOY! I had fun putting this together.
