You have unique gifts, passions, and stardom.
You can be a star as a janitor, a software developer, a zookeeper, or anything you want to be. Being the star of your life doesn’t mean you ever step onto a stage or live a glamorous life. In fact, it could mean the exact opposite.
What would you say if someone looked in your eyes and asked for you to build a school. Could you also fill it with desks, chairs, and teaching supplies? Oh, could you also feed the kids and teachers every day?
Now imagine how it would feel if you said yes.
A few years ago, I was in a rural town of Uganda, and the community was looking for that exact thing. The cost to build it all? Five thousand dollars.
Five thousand. To permanently change the trajectory of hundreds or thousands of lives.
In my hometown, five grand was the cost of a crappy car. One that would wake up the neighbors if you turned it on at night.
If you wanted to, you could just swipe five grand on your credit card in less than two minutes.
As soon as I heard that number, my life was changed. My perspective was shifted forever.
We weren’t given gifts to live a comfortable life. We weren’t blessed with the privilege and capability to make money just for to buy the newest smartphone. We were given gifts and capabilities to give to those who couldn’t.
It’s not enough to know what you need to do. So when I released my original album, “I Don’t Belong to You,” I partnered with Plan International. 100% of sales go towards stopping child marriages and female genitalia mutilation.
How will you use your stardom to make a difference?
