MAMA Sol

As a Teacher & Mentor, Mama Sol has mothered so many for so long. She assures that it was teaching that prepared her for parenthood & taught her the importance of being an example of good.

According to Mama Sol, "Parenthood is the hardest job you'll ever Love.", & as a single mother rearing a young man, she truly commends the men committed beginning to end.

Motherhood has inspired some of Sol's most profound compositions, "MANHOOD" , which is a tribute song to active fathers, was recognized by Congressman Mike Kildee & the Michigan Fatherhood Coalition. Mama Sol was a keynote performance for the Michigan Fatherhood Conference for several years & received their Special Recognition Award in 2016.

Mama Sol's "SONS", a song encouraging single-mothers to stay strong, gained global recognition & received over 1,000,000,000 views on social media. 

My mom was never the best influence, I've looked to @mamasol for a strong female influence and she fulfilled that amazingly.

Sol Human...

Mama Sol visited several refugee camps in Somalia & Nairobi, Kenya during the midst of famine & drought; because of her extensive community work, she was offered a position as a United Nations Ambassador. Sol has been a voice of reason on BBC World News Kenya & a feature on Al Jazeera America's "Growing up in Americas most dangerous city, Flint" . Sol's compositions deal with subjects like Flint's blight problem "ABANDONED" & Flint's ongoing water crisis "HARD TO SWALLOW". Despite the many obstacles & adversities she has encountered, Flint's native daughter has shown the world that fresh water does, indeed, flow in some of the rockiest places.

Sol Survivor...

While working alongside music video extraordinare Hype Williams on FUBU's television commercials, Mama Sol received the devastating diagnosis of Breast Cancer, which brought that chapter to a close. As a result, Sol returned to her beloved hometown to undergo multiple surgeries. Believing in the resiliency of her body to detox the toxins, she refused chemotherapy and "traditional" medication and agreed to only radiation. She endured radiation for three long months and it took five years for her to fully return to her energetic self. Sol's story reminds us that as long as we have breath, there is no end to our work, and she exemplifies this daily through her hard work and dedication to help create a better space for all humans. She is a vegan and firm believer in holistic healing that enlightens audiences on the importance of balancing mind, body & spirit; and on Recognizing, Acknowledging & Removing Toxins from the mind, body & spirit.
