Love and Politics

I think that when a lot of people think of art they think of visual art, like drawings, paintings, or photographs, but art can come in a variety of forms: music, performance, prints, screen printing, earth art, sculpture, etc. One of my top 5 favorite music artists is India.Arie and she recently came out with a new album, Testimony: Vol.2, Love and Politics. All of her albums are conscious of issues that we face every day, from love to stereotypes to body image. She states that the purpose of her new album is to "spread love, healing, and peace through the power of words and music." Now, can you imagine what the world would be like if there were more artists like her and our youth enjoyed India.Arie more than Lil Wayne!?

Here is her NPR interview and a few new songs....India.Arie: Love and Politics
