beFEARLESS: An Intimate Conversation With La’Porsha Renae

” I have nothing to lose and everything at the same time”

La’Porsha Renae joined Courtney Hustle and a room of fans for an intimate conversation celebrating life and embracing yourself. The season 15  American Idol runner up and R&B songstress is from McComb, Mississippi. Similar to Louisiana, Mississippi isn’t best known for birthing the cookie-cutter version of ” a Hollywood Star”.

“I represent beautiful, full-figured women, single mothers and natural-haired women, and black lives,” the rising star told Billboard of the album cover, which features her adorable daughter, Nayalee.

When asked about her #beFEARLESS journey through a failed marriage, domestic violence and facing odds set against her, La’Porsha boldy boast “I embraced everything that I thought would hold me back from pursuing my dreams and used my insecurities to give me the courage to inspire and advocate for others who possessed many of the same insecurities I had. I also wanted to honor single mothers and defy the stereotypical dress code of a thick, brown-skinned single mother and domestic violence survivor. I’m proud of my curves, my daughter, as well as the harsh past that helped shape me into the strong woman I am today.”
