Feeling inspired by Laura Mvula’s “Overcome”. The song and the visuals are amazing.

Overcome has beautiful afro-modern dance sequences. The rich brown and gold colors highlighted in the video are everything. The caged bird – free as metaphor both in lyrics and visuals is on point. Just beautiful. Laura’s voice is so amazing. The music behind it makes you want to dance. Really dance. Dust off the shoes; do the work to get my body ready to move and lift. Just lovely. The words of the song make you want to go and be everything no matter what’s trying to clip your wings. “When your heart is broken down
And your head don’t reach the sky/Take your broken wings and fly”.
