I remember the first time I heard Malynda singing someone shared her post on Instagram, and I immediately started following her on Instagram. This is the beauty of social media right. Malynda's new song is called, “Still Standing” and it was released in 2020. This song is so timely after living through all the protests we witness from Politics, and Systematic Racism we pushed through it all. Malynda recently said a profound statement on her Instagram stories. She said this year when we talk about Black History Month, can we talked about what Black People have accomplished rather than talking about all the blood shed and slavery they went through. In other words let’s focus on the positive and not the negative part all the time when referring to Black History overall. Malynda's vocal ability is soulful and inspiring. I can only hope after reading this article you will be inspired to follow Malynda Hale on all social media platforms.

Hence the title of the show, #WeNeedToTalk. I dive deep into things like religion, culture, social justice and politics. The conversations are really really engaging and each guest I have had such a different story and dynamic to bring to the table.
