Today we’d like to introduce you to Cori Broadus.
Cori, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
When I was younger, I used to sing in a choir at my school, and I also use to go on tour with my dad. Right then and there, I knew singing is what I wanted to do. I loved watching him perform and seeing people happy to see him. It’s like this life was meant for me. You know when your young and you say, “Oh this is what I want to be when I grow up” but you’re so young when you get older, you’ll have other dreams you want to succeed. My dream never stayed I just got more and more passionate about it the more I grew up. I never gave up, I had a vocal coach for two years to perfect my craft. And now I have a whole project out called “21” I really feel that’s it’s a coming of age project.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Well, when I was younger my dad told me I sucked. Of course, it made me sad but I just kept going cause I knew deep down in my heart this is what I wanted to do. My problem is also being consistent so I’ll drop a song and a video and that’s it. For as long as I’ve been doing music, this is my first ever full body of work released. I was young so I was worried about being with my friends and hanging out, I didn’t want to be at the studio working or away from all the fun. But once I got older, I realized time doesn’t wait for nobody and if this what I want to do, I have to do it now! I have everything at my fingertips. I just have to execute
We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I’m an independent artist right now. Right now, I’m known for taking cute pictures and being this celebrity kid that’s very normal and humble… which is why I think people gravitate towards me… I do lives on my Instagram every Sunday it’s a girl chat and I have a YouTube channel that I’m going to start working on and posting every week so stay tuned for that. I think what sets me apart from others is my mindset and thinking process, my maturity level for my age and I’m not the typical girly girl or high maintenance.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
I just want to be very successful! and I want to be a voice for others who feel like they don’t have one or they can’t have one. But eventually, I’ll make everyone feel comfortable to use their voice and not give a fuck what people have to say or think. I’m all about being intuned with your feelings and not being scared to say how you feel. I want to help my chocolate girl community who struggle with a lot of insecurities, women who are ashamed of their bodies, I want to help lupus charities and eventually have my own. There’s so many things that I want to do and be. I don’t just want to be the winter that everyone knows. I really want to impact the world. & when I leave this earth, everyone will remember for a good cause
