How do we find the strength to be ourselves as artists? To go wth the flow of how other people see us yet still remain true to who we are and our own vision for ourselves and career? Talk about a delicate balance!
Singer/Actor Jeigh Madjus is joining the conversation on Cue To Cue today and is opening up about his own journey to find that delicate balance as a performer. Working to go against racial typecasting while still wanting to work as as performers, to having a realization that he can embrace who he, have a career and be an example for those who don’t see themselves represented not only artists but in the stories we see told.
Jeigh is an absolute joy to be around and his honesty and humility about his life as an artist is both refreshing and made me laugh out loud!
