“It was phenomenal because I performed the night prior. As I was walking to take the stage, you could hear people saying things like ‘she’s amazing,’ ‘really talented,’ and ‘she’s a natural star.’ Then they would high-five me — even kids. I felt like I accomplished more than an award. I captured their hearts.”
All of us here in the YOBI.tv family send a huge congrats out to Teri “Lyric” Green!
You remember Lyric. She was a fan favorite on the first season of Take the Stage. She got a standing ovation for her first performance from one-and-only Johnny Wright. She completed a rigorous 50 Mics in 60 Days self-challenge. And she wrote a song called “Scars” (which features fellow Take the Stager Gabrielle Taryn) that both Johnny Wright and superstar producer/songwriter Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins really dug during the live finale of the Take the Stage series.
She was featured this month in the Industry All Access New Artist Spotlight, which named her “Chicago’s Hottest Star.” The IAA story is a great interview that ranges on topics from how Lyric discovered her own talent, how her experiences influence her both personally and professionally, and how she through her art can transmute pain into beauty. Definitely a must-read!
Lyric kicks off her Southern TakeOver Tour tomorrow!
