Working on Live Unchained keeps freedom on our minds. Live Unchained has been a journey of freeing ourselves–mainly from the fears and anxieties of taking on such a large and important project. As we continued to share the project with our sisters, we found the love and support that allowed us, and the project to grow.
We are still questioning for ourselves what freedom is and means. Can one of us be free if we aren’t all free? Is freedom, as Nina Simone said, something you can’t explain with language?
Typically, when we reach a stumbling block in writing or designing for Live Unchained we play something by Nina Simone–like, “I Wish I Knew How It Would Be Feel to Be Free.” (For this song, Nina Simone should be considered the unofficial co-author of our upcoming press release.)
This clip got us thinking:
What does freedom mean to you?
