My mom means the world to me. We’ve been through a lot but I am so incredibly grateful to God at the ways in which we’ve grown and strengthened our relationship. When I was younger, I had no idea how many of the choices she made as a single parent kept me safe and strong. I have so much love and respect for her. And every day, I gain a greater appreciation for who she is and how she moves in the world. She drove up from #Kalamazoo to hang with us at the In-Store event in #Chicago. “I’ll always love my mama, cuz she’s my favorite girl”. Life wouldn’t be the same without her! #MyLadyBug #SoGrateful #Mom @DeborahWarfield πŸ˜πŸ’—

A lil sleepy this morning, but I hung up my cape last night and now I’m back to the day job grind. One day I will work solely for myself, and Rajdulari Music, Inc. will be an empire to reckon with! Until then….#TheGrindContinues Happy Monday, Loved Ones! πŸ˜πŸ˜˜πŸ’‹ #JourneyofAWoman #Journey2TheGrammys

Whew, I slept for four hours and now I feel like I’m back to normal again! I couldn’t let this day pass by without thanking everyone for their support and generosity at @hydeparkrecords yesterday at the #FallSoulReunion in #Chicago. Special thank you to @Kevin Goins, Gary Tyson, Reginald Chaison, Alexis Bouteville, and many others! Also a very special thank you to my musical guest @ChrisGreene who came out and played saxophone with me. And a shout out to my mom Deborah Warfield, Aunt Lynne, cousins Rochelle, @creetcreet, and @Jonathan Talley who came from Chi town and Kalamazoo to support. I love you all from the bottom of my heart! Thank you for making yesterday such an awesome experience. You hold me up and keep me going. For that, I am forever grateful. More pics to come later, Loved Ones. Enjoy your Sunday evening! πŸ˜πŸ’—πŸ˜˜πŸ’‹πŸŽΆπŸŽ€πŸŽΌ #JourneyofAWoman #Journey2TheGrammys #TheGrindContinues
