“According to my Aunt Gloria, it was apparent that making music was my dream after she took me to Michael Jackson’s ‘Bad’ concert in my hometown Kansas City. The next morning I went to church and started beating on the back of a pew, tapping and singing Michael Jackson’s ‘Beat It’ extremely loud during my pastor’s sermon! The whole church chuckled, and I believe I was escorted out. That moment gave me great joy and extra confidence.” – Janelle Monáe
