Since far too often we only publicly say nice things about people when they are dead I’ve decided to randomly pick a Facebook friend every day and say something nice about them.

Today’s person: Safiya Fredericks!
Safiya could be more intimidating. Much more intimidating. Onstage or off she is just so damn real it could make anyone feel like their whole life is a lie and what’s the point of this hoax of an existence so shallowly endured. I’ve looked into her eyes onstage and saw that depth of completeness the just pisses me off. A hard working pro with a sharp wit, a depth most of us only wish for, and a singing voice that’s like showering in warm coco butter. She could be much more intimidating - but she’s not. Because the rest of the time she busy being so damn nice. Nice and funny and empathetic and caring and actually not just pretending to be helpful. Yes, there’s is a lot she could be intimidated by with Safiya - if she didn’t handle all her gifts with such grace.
