We have a mission to motivate, spur on, encourage, and inspire.
So Am I- Worthy supports women singers/songwriters in the early stages of their career through coaching, community, empowerment events, and music.
We aim to create a virtual space and community so women singers/songwriters have a place to create, brainstorm, grow, and thrive as an artist.
For some odd reason, the arts have always been on the back burner. Usually, the last thing funded, usually deemed unimportant when in actuality life is mundane and silent without music. Have you lived a life without music? Songwriters and Singers are the meat of the music and if they are not nurtured, motivated, and supported early on, they could quit and the beauty and creativity they have to bring would be stopped. WE DON'T WANT THAT!
Over and over, I hear "do you have a backup plan, nothing is promised or concrete. That sounds nice but it needs to be tangible". My passion and vision may not be tangible to naysayers but one day it will be.
We aim to help women singers/songwriters know to never give up. Even when the support isn't there, even when no one believes in the lyrics, the beat, the song. It only takes one moment and one song to silence all that negativity. You don't hear in almost every award speech "to all those people who didn't believe in me" for no reason. The lack of faith is true. We are here to be a support and believe in YOU!
WE ARE ASKING FOR YOUR SUPPORT IN OUR EFFORTS TO MOTIVATE WOMEN SINGERS/SONGWRITERS, ON THEIR JOURNEY!

BE MUSICALLY AFFIRMED
Another way we want to encourage singer/songwriters is by using music to musically affirm. The journey of a musician can be lonely and daunting, we help singers to affirm themselves, keep going, believe in themselves, and have a support system. The good news is musical affirmations are not only for the singer if you want to be encouraged you can get a musical note for yourself as well! Check it out!
I am Valencia Callens, Founder of So AM I-Worthy and I am so happy that you are here! You are valuable and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
I love music. I create all the time. I am a singer/songwriter. I am a Masters of Music recipient. Trained classically, I grew up singing Gospel, Jazz, and dabble in things Pop and R&B. I am a motivator, leader, feminist, and friend. I created So Am I-Worthy to help creatives thrive. I want to be a support system for early-stage women singers/songwriters on their musical and creative journey. As a woman on the path to music, I experienced some hills and valleys. I know what it feels like to sleep on someone's couch, I know what it feels like to be rejected after endless hours of practice. I want to share what I know so that another woman's journey can avoid some of my pitfalls, she can be successful, confident, and worth and creativity is always in her path.
You are Worthy!!!
