So last night, ThatKellieGirl began her pre-birthday celebration!
It was an impromptu get-together with some friends who wanted to wish me a “Happy Birthday”. One of the many conversations was about our favorite movies as kids. For me, I loved (and still love) The Last Dragon, Breakin I, Breakin II: Electric Boogaloo and The Wiz (Honorable mentions: The Goonies and Adventures in Babysitting).
As a kid, I loved the music, the dancing and, most importantly, the perseverance of the main characters. It was so inspirational to me. So when I was asked, what was my favorite part of The Wiz. I said the ending when Glinda the Good (Lena Horne) sang to Dorothy (Diana Ross) “Believe in Yourself”. To this day, I love how Lena sang that song as well as those beautiful star babies floating in the air.
So in honor of great movie memories, check out the incomparable Lena Horne encouraging you to “Believe In Yourself”.
