THE SONG THAT INSPIRED THE MOVEMENT
MESSAGE FROM MINDI
WE WRITE ABOUT WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT...
Early on I never thought twice about being a woman in a man’s world. I just followed my passions and believed everyone was equal. Sometimes that was the case. Other times it wasn’t. Those times that I’ve been judged for being a “girl” I’ve tried to use as character strengtheners. I believe the words that have been used against me can become my battle cry, and every moment I’ve been pushed down I can use to light a fire underneath me to be better and stronger. The phrase “Pretty Good For A Girl” keeps coming around in my world. I see so many women create and accomplish incredible things every day. It’s inspiring for me to watch Misty Copeland dance and Serena Williams dominate a tennis game and Adele bring a room to tears with her voice. But many times there is someone to add to any celebration of achievement… that’s “Pretty Good For A Girl.” It just takes the wind out of your sails, doesn’t it? Well, I’m here to turn that into a term of empowerment. That’s right it’s “Pretty Good For A Girl.” I’m proud of being who I am and representing women. I wanted to tell my story through this song and make it into a celebration of sheer Woman Power. When we were going over songs for the recording sessions, Kevin Shirley mentioned that he thought Joe Bonamassa would kill it playing on this song. I thought… “But he’s not a girl.” No he’s not, but Joe came in one night, hung out, and recorded the whole song with us, not just a solo. He was in it from note one. And it inspired me. What a cool thing that he could come in and take this song to the next level with me… push me towards greatness. It’s a meaningful song for me and I love that he joined me for it. I hope it inspires you the same way it inspires me.
