India.Arie Gives Soulful “Steady Love” Performance | Black Girls Rock 2019


I am so happy to be here
doing “Black Girls Rock!” on the East Coast because
New York just passed a law saying that
you cannot discriminate against anyone
based on their hair. [cheers and applause] Right. Now, you don’t have any,
so you can relax. This is good
because this next performer has had every hairdo
under the sun. She had wraps,
locs, a taper cut. She even shaved her head and then told us
that we were not our hair. [cheers and applause] Now, I don’t know what her hair
is gonna look like tonight, but I do know she has
a beautiful voice. Put your hands together
