Vivian's bio - every woman..
'If art is to nourish the root of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him.'John Fitzgerald Kennedy - United States President
You have to believe in or feel something about what you're saying if you want anyone else to buy into it, explains Vivian Sessoms with absolute certainty. It's important to me to mean what I say when I'm writing or singing about something. It can't simply be just a collection of words. For Vivian, a life surrounded by music have ingrained the passion and the power of music in her.
Born and raised in Harlem, Vivian, whose mother was a session/jingle-singer, and whose father was a flautist/percussionist (who's played with the likes of James Brown), learned the wonder of music at a young age. Surrounded by nightclubs, churches and regular jam sessions at her family's home, she was already singing by the time she could talk. Growing up, there was always music to express the way I was feeling. I was so immersed in it, that I kind of viewed music as a kind of backdrop to my life, she recalls.
