The Power of Community: RISE
The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines the word “rise” more than 20 different ways, both as a verb and a noun. Hosts Andrea Smith and Siri Phaneendra interview 16-year-old singer-songwriter-musician, Isolde Fair with her poignant new song nominated for Hollywood Music in Media Award, “Rise.” A collaboration between Isolde and her multi-talented parents: her mother, the esteemed pianist and composer Starr Parodi, who co-wrote “Rise” with Isolde; and Jeff Eden Fair, Isolde’s father, who co-produced it with Starr. Andrea and Siri read The Gift of Community from Cynthia Brian’s award winning book, Be the Star You Are!® 99 Gifts for Living, Loving, Laughing, and Learning to Make a Difference. To be served, we must first serve others. To belong, we must first accept.
In the segment, In the Spotlight, Andrea highlights the courage and activism of John Lewis rising to build community. Look at the communities of your life. Are you adding to the brotherhood and sisterhood of society? From Isolde’s chorus, “We rise until we’re standing. We rise until we’re strong. Our dreams are never ending. We rise until we’re standing.”
What have you done to speak up and speak out?
Bio: Isolde Fair
Isolde Fair first gained recognition at age 13 with her composition and recording “To All The Little Girls.” The lyrics focused on a portion of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 concession speech dedicated to young women: “Never doubt that you are valuable…” The song reached Clinton herself, who wrote online of her appreciation of the sentiments expressed by Isolde. Subsequently, Isolde was courted by numerous media outlets eager to know how such a young girl created such a profound piece of art. “Rise” focuses on using one’s voice for positive change, and the power that each person possesses to allow our voices to be heard against injustice—the unstoppable drive to never give up. It’s a message for people of all ages, but especially speaks to youth. Isolde has performed as an artist, singing in front of a full orchestra at Lincoln Center in New York City, as well as soloing on violin with members of Cirque du Soleil and in other high-profile situations. With so much raw, innate talent, and a bottomless well of visions and inspirations to draw from, Isolde Fair can only continue to rise.
