Barefoot Divas continue to wow audiences where ever they go. As they prepare to fly onto Honolulu this afternoon, they leave their powerful footprint in Oakland California and not just with the audience who braved the freezing weather last night to come out to see them perform at the Zellerbach Auditorium in Berkeley. This morning the Divas drove out to meet 25 young women all housed in an underground office space for expecting and parenting teen girls in the Fruitvale area of Oakland. The students barely have any access to the arts, especially the performing arts and are involved in a very bare bones program. We are mindful of just how lucky we are to have the resources we have back in Australia and NZ. We were welcomed as the girls sang to us in Maori. Barefoot Divas reciprocated by singing an Aboriginal and a Maori song and they were all inspired to join in on Merenia’s This One Be Killa with dancing and singing. It was a very powerful morning for everyone with much love and healing and many tears were shed by all.
