How To Fix A Broken Record
Thoughts on Vinyl Records, Awkward Relationships, and Learning to Be Myself
Your soul holds a massive record collection: melodies, rhythms, and bass lines. Memories that ask you to dance and memories that haunt you in a minor key. Lies that become the soundtracks to your life while truths play too softly to be heard.
Spoken word poet Amena Brown’s broken records played messages about how she wasn’t worthy to be loved. How to Fix a Broken Record chronicles her journey of healing as she’s allowed the music of God’s love to replace the scratchy taunts of her past. From bad dates to marriage lessons at Waffle House, from learning to love her hair to learning to love an unexpected season of life, from discovering the power of saying no and the freedom to say yes, Amena offers keep-it-real stories your soul can relate to.
The hurtful words of others and the failures of your past often determine what record you play the most in your mind. Those painful repetitions can become loud at the most inopportune time, keeping you from speaking up, pursuing your dreams, and growing closer to God.
Recognize the negative messages that play on repeat every day in your mind. Learn how to replace them with the truth that you are a beloved child of God. And discover how to laugh along the way as you find new joy in the beautiful music of your life.
Amena Brown 'LIVE'
Seven years ago I released my first official spoken word album recorded live at Java Monkey Speaks. Since then I went natural, got married, and released three more albums all produced by DJ Opdiggy. Then, on Sunday, September 18th I recorded my 5th spoken word album live at Eddie's Attic.
These new poems and stories are soulful, vulnerable, and laugh-out-loud hilarious. Combining spoken word poetry and down-to-earth storytelling from telling my history of bad dates and nostalgia for tv sitcoms to human trafficking, loss, love and marriage.
