Still I Rise

This song, performed beautifully by Yolanda Adams, was composed by Percy Bady and released in 2005.  It is dedicated to Rosa Parks and interpolated with Maya Angelou’s line “still I rise” with the theme of perseverance ringing throughout it.  The lyrics grab you right from the start:

Shattered, but I’m not broken
Wounded but time will heal

It’s a really lovely song that can reduce one to tears, especially if one happens to be going through some hard things in life.
