Where Flowers Bloom

“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.
