This Dynamic Sister Duo #TWF

This dynamic duo went from singing covers of Beyoncé songs on YouTube to being signed to Beyoncé’s label, Parkwood Entertainment. Our terrific women this Friday are Chloe and Halle Bailey.

They signed to Parkwood Entertainment in 2013 when their rendition of Beyoncé’s song “Pretty Hurts” went viral. Ever since then they have opened for Beyoncé on tour, booked acting jobs, performed at Coachella, and dropped an album.

Chloe x Halle’s music is very unique and always have a powerful message behind it. Their song, “Warrior,” which is featured in the Disney movie, Wrinkle of Time, was about the strong women in their life. It emphasized the importance of uplifting women and how we can be just as ‘strong’ as men.

Chloe x Halle are also series regulars on the Black-ish spin off, Grown-ish. They also wrote and sing the theme song of the show, “Grown.” Many believe these sisters are twins however, they are actually two years apart. Chloe is 20 years old and Halle is 18. On Grown-ish however, their characters are twins.

These girls are an inspiration and a great example of what hard work looks like. They recently were nominated for 2 Grammys and I couldn’t be more excited for them. I appreciate their music and what they stand for. Chloe x Halle are definitely girls with beauty and brains.

Beyoncé, the Queen of Pop #FWF

Hello Beauties! I apologize for not posting a terrific woman on Tuesday, so as a result I’m going to do it today. This will be called a Fantastic Women Friday post! This will not be a daily thing. I will continue to post terrific women on Tuesdays!

It is only right for my terrific woman this Friday to be Beyoncé since she made history last weekend and the weekend before that at Coachella!

Beyoncé is a multi platinum, Grammy Award-winning recording artist who is also considered the queen of pop. She has won 22 Grammys…which makes her the 2nd most award winning female. She is unstoppable!

Beyoncé has broken records and made history plenty of times. She is the definition of a walking legend. Beyonce is the first artist to have all of her albums debut at number 1. She is the most-nominated woman in Grammy history and she is the first to win six Grammys in one night! Beyoncé is also the first black female artist to cover Vogue’s September issue, and to top it off she is the world’s highest paid recording artist.

There is nothing this woman can’t do. She is a role model to many people including myself! She has shown women that nothing is impossible if you are determined and hard working. She continues to amaze the world with her creativity and her passion for performing. She continues to change the world with her powerful songs and her history making moments. Thank you Beyoncé for being a role model and an inspiration. Beyoncé is a girl with beauty and brains!

Beyoncé Made History at Coachella! ***Beychella

There’s no question that Beyoncé slayed at Coachella Saturday night. Her quick changes, her own band, her dancers, her voice and most importantly HER STAGE PRESENCE.

When Beyoncé performs there is always a theme/message behind her show. Beyonce is the first African American woman to headline Coachella; she made history! So what better way to perform at Coachella than by representing black women and women in general.

To start, Beyoncé was giving HBCU (Historical Black College or University) vibes with the band, the step team, the dance girls and Greek life. HBCUs are known for their lit and soulful marching bands, as well as their pride in black culture. Beyoncé showed her pride in black culture and her empowerment of black women just by setting that theme to the show. It was a very clear visual and I absolutely loved that she decided to do that! She also sang the Black American National Anthem, “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” before performing some of her own hits.

Beyoncé showed a subtle message of body positivity. She had girls of all sizes dancing for her. She was representing women of all sizes, showing that anyone is capable to dance and express themselves. “Fit” girls aren’t the only ones who can dance for Beyoncé, let alone dance well.

Beyoncé had a whole section of female violinist and she had 2 amazing female guitarist as well. There was a female in almost every section of her band. Talk about girl power!

Beyoncé’s songs alone were empowering. From “Who Run the World (Girls)” to “Diva” to “Sorry” to “Formation.” They all imply that women are strong, smart, powerful, and fierce. You should never let a man control you nor do you need a man to survive because “you slay, all day.”

Thank you Beyoncé for continuing to set the bar for women in the industry, for inspiring girls all over, and for being a great example of a hardworking women. She never tends to disappoint her fans and always continues to empower women around her.

What did you think of her performance and what other messages did you get out of it?
