“Give me my flowers while I’m here,” was a common phrase spoken by Laila Ray, the late grandmother of Marlanna Evans, a small town girl from North Carolina – also an emcee known to the world as Rapsody. This wisdom, that was instilled at a young age, gave Rapsody a perspective and drive which allowed her to be resilient towards her dream in order to share her voice with the world. As she breaks through a male-dominated music industry, that provides increasingly narrow roles for women, Rapsody uses her art to express challenges, lessons and frustrations that she faces while creating her own path.
Where Flowers Bloom follows Rapsody with her team of producers, The Soul Council, headed by the Grammy-Award winning artist 9th Wonder. As they pursue Rapsody’s vision to expand her reach creating the Grammy Nominated album Laila’s Wisdom.
Influenced by artists such as Jay-Z, Terrace Martin and Young Guru, Rapsody embarks on a journey to use the power of music to not only share her story but manifest her own destiny allowing her flowers to bloom everywhere.
