My #wcw of the @meangirlsbway tour this week is full of MAD RESPECT and a little bit of a heavy heart. It goes to a woman who I have been crushing on for awhile. I first met her doing a cabaret for Planned Parenthood, hosted by the brilliant @clairemanship, and I immediately was taken aback by her directness, her talent, and of course her heart-warming smile. So I was jumping for joy when I found out she was joining us on the road with Mean Girls because I knew very few could do the job with her same passion, skill level, and honestly high expectations. She works hard and she holds people to that standard in the most encouraging way. There are times when her professor comes out and I love it because the woman is motivating AF. She brings out the best in us and we all want to succeed for ourselves, but also to make her proud and give us that smile we all know and love. We were all sad to see her go, but we were so lucky to have gotten her for as long as we did. She is a true powerhouse and I feel so privileged I got to work with such a fierce woman in position of power. You don't see enough women MD's and I'm proud we had one of the many making a difference. Happy Trails @rebekahbruceparker! Keep breaking glass ceilings and kickin' ass! We will miss you ❤️ #womencrushwednesday #onwednesdayswepostpink #musicdirector #womanmusicdirector #meangirlstour

(SWIPE) I had a blast serving on this panel! This panel was full of amazing folks. Comedic TV sitcom writer, actor on Brooklyn 99, a Visual artist and it was moderated by a TV producer. Then there was me, the music artist. I have never felt so much joy and love and anxiety in my line of work ever. This was such a fun thing and it was a super dope concept to add to this stage!!!! Thank you to the Extravaganza team of the ELCA Youth Ministry Network (@elcaymnet) for having me. It was an honor and I’m humbled by this whole experience! Check out the video clip! The question was “When did I know that I was creative? What was that thing?” In the simplest of terms, it’s was the pop band trio of brothers named Hanson! Also super huge shout out to @brendabos #ext20 #practicingcreativity #fromwithin #singer #songwriter #song #thespian #love #music #musician #musiciansofinstagram #composer #artist #superbowlsunday #blackgirlmagic #blackgirlsrock #pianist #director #producer #writer #piano #femalemusician #womanmusicdirector #losangeles #california #bosschicks #bosschickmoves #MusicMayhem #MxM #elevatedtalent

Reflecting on my decade: (I wanted to pick 1 photo that I felt perfectly described it) Everything comes full circle. I’m standing exactly where I started. Front and center with one hand up to God (always) and a huge smile on my face. I’m thankful for all that I’ve accomplished and all that I’ve been given. I soared on wings like an Eagle above the storms. Excited about what’s to come. Forever grateful. #fromwithin #singer #songwriter #song #thespian #love #music #musician #musiciansofinstagram #composer #artist #bighairdontcare #blackgirlmagic #blackgirlsrock #goddess #pianist #director #producer #writer #piano #femalemusician #womanmusicdirector #losangeles #california #bosschicks #bosschickmoves #MusicMayhem #MxM #elevatedtalent

I’ve been sitting on this one basically all year but I’m super excited to finally discuss the fact that I will be scoring the @smile_film2019 written, directed and produced by @rudegentleman and @blue_kimble!!!! I’m honored and humbled. These guys are crazy talented! The work that has already been created for this film is going to knock folks socks off! It’s always dope to work with other dope creatives. Can’t wait for everyone to not only see but to also hear what’s been cooking this year!!! Tyra, Black girl film composer...I love the ring to that!!! 😉 #carpediem #singer #songwriter #song #thespian #love #music #musician #musiciansofinstagram #composer #artist #bighairdontcare #blackgirlmagic #blackgirlsrock #goddess #pianist #director #producer #writer #love #piano #femalemusician #womanmusicdirector #losangeles #california #bosschicks #bosschickmoves #MusicMayhem #MxM #elevatedtalent

When you sit down and think about a year and how much has changed, it can be a bit shocking. I wasn’t sure what to do for my birthday for a long time because as I started to make a list of people that I really wanted to celebrate with or see, I noticed that the list became short because last year, I lost them. There was no Mike, no Mookey, no grandma, no Uncle Dean walking down the street today (because he never forgot my birthday) and so many others. So it made me stop and think. It made me think about the impact 1 year can have on someone. If there is anything that the last year of life taught me, it’s that I am beyond lucky to still be here and that I gotta live everyday like it’s my last. Love hard. Play hard. Pray harder. Give more. Complain less. Forgive faster. Always show gratitude. Finally, be unapologetically you! This is thirty new! #happybirthday #carpediem #singer #songwriter #song #thespian #love #music #musician #musiciansofinstagram #composer #artist #bighairdontcare #blackgirlmagic #blackgirlsrock #goddess #pianist #director #producer #writer #love #piano #femalemusician #womanmusicdirector #losangeles #california #bosschicks #bosschickmoves #MusicMayhem #MxM #elevatedtalent

Flashback to that one time that @rachel.cargle came to @the.wing (LA) and shut it down. Lover her. Thank you for your version of our fight. Thank you for being so inspirational. #rachelcargle #love #musician #musiciansofinstagram #artist #blackgirlmagic #blackgirlsrock #goddess #pianist #director #producer #writer #femalemusician #womanmusicdirector #losangeles #california #bosschicks #bosschickmoves #MusicMayhem #MxM #elevatedtalent

Still one of my favorite photos of us. Why? In this photo, I see womanhood, motherhood and daughterhood (not sure if that’s a word). In this photo, I see my ancestors history. In this photo, I see the fight in her eyes that I inherited. In this photo, I see brilliance being birth. In this photo, I see love and protection...sacrifice and correction. In this photo, I see the dopest to ever do it because she raised other people’s children and NEVER MISSED A BEAT WITH HER OWN. Something like a super power. But I must remind her that in this photo, I’m the cuter of the two 🤷🏾‍♀️ 🤣 Happy Mother’s Day to the dopest to ever do it. #Mothersday #singer #songwriter #song #thespian #love #music #musician #musiciansofinstagram #composer #artist #bighairdontcare #blackgirlmagic #blackgirlsrock #goddess #pianist #director #producer #writer #love #piano #femalemusician #womanmusicdirector #losangeles #california #bosschicks #bosschickmoves #MusicMayhem #MxM #elevatedtalent

#TBT to that one time I went to the wing and @byshondaland by @shondarhimes took over. I damn near had to hold myself back from tears of joy. I was honored and humbled because I adore each and everyone of these actresses! Also, it was super dope to bring one of my closest friends with me and hang with some other dope women that I have built relationships with at The Wing. My girl @justdanablair did her thing and did it with style, class and grace!!! The photo of myself and @jainaleeortiz was low key a bucket list moment. I love who she is on and off of the camera! I think the world of her and got to tell her in person. She is absolutely beautiful inside and out. Thankful to her and for her. @kimraver #greysanatomy dropped some gems on owning the room and creating progressive change. @ajanaomi_king #howtogetawaywithmurder reminded me of my power as not only a woman but a woman of color. @brittlrobertson #wethepeople taught us that it was okay to not be so sure and to allow the story to play itself out and @jainaleeortiz #station19 laughed with us while she reminded us to GO AFTER WHAT WE WANT!!!!!! Thank you @the.wing for another dope chick experience! Thank you Shonda Rhymes for creating this space for women in television. #thewingla #carpediem #singer #songwriter #thespian #love #musician #musiciansofinstagram #artist #blackgirlmagic #blackgirlsrock #goddess #pianist #director #producer #writer #femalemusician #womanmusicdirector #losangeles #california #bosschicks #bosschickmoves #MusicMayhem #MxM #elevatedtalent

On this day in history, these rocking ladies decided to take another step closer to making their dreams come true! We are being led into our 4th season of @christopher.raymond Scarlet Letter: The Musical under the direction of the fabulous Kay Cole. She comes with no need for introduction but just in case you didn’t know, she was in the original cast for “Chorus Line” on Broadway. I am so honored to learn from her and stand alongside these super dope actresses and singers. Can’t wait to make more history and btw, HAPPY WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH. #womenshistorymonth #carpediem #singer #songwriter #song #thespian #love #music #musician #musiciansofinstagram #composer #artist #bighairdontcare #blackgirlmagic #blackgirlsrock #goddess #pianist #director #producer #writer #love #piano #femalemusician #womanmusicdirector #losangeles #california #bosschicks #bosschickmoves #MusicMayhem #MxM #ElevatedTalent

Another favorite moment. Bringing in my birthday with my silly baby brother. Love him so much. This is our favorite place together. Glad that I am able to share my favorite childhood hangout with him. #siblings #brother #family #love #birthday #beach #fun #relax #pianist #musician #musiciansofinstagram #singer #songwriter #artist #composer #writer #blackgirlmagic #blackgirlsrock #love #piano #music #smile #femalemusician #womanmusicdirector #losangeles #california #bosschicks #bosschickmoves #MusicMayhem #MxM #ElevatedTalent

Sometimes it’s okay to remind yourself of your greatness. Greatness has no expiration date. Ray Charles and @gunsnroses (@mattsorum @slash) taught me that at age 14.

When I was a child I used to study music and my dream was to become "the first" woman music director. I thought there were no women conducting orchestras because whenever my parents would bring me to a concert, I would only find men directors. Although I clearly never became one, I recently joined a women chorus and I'm so happy to be part of this amazing group of women 🎼🎻💃🎶 #seasonconcert #womenpower #womanmusicdirector #women #singing #chorus #findvirgie
