Laura Mvula Shares Moving "Phenomenal Woman" Visuals
"Phenomenal Woman," a recent, vibrant single by Laura Mvula, now has a visual element to it! The track, inspired by the “1970’s-style gospel funk number” that was inspired by Maya Angelou’s famous poem of the same name, made a huge statement in her goal to carry an inspiring message.
The video, released today, was shot during her recent visit to South Africa, and is "a bold, vibrant statement of intent."
“I wrote this anthem to raise up our women. We are the givers of life, we are the children bearers, the nurturers, the heroines, we are extraordinary in our ordinariness, we fly, we fight we are 'Phenomenal Woman’."
The uplifting color scheme and groovy choreography go hand in hand with the track, as the camera pans over a group of women in a beautiful, tribal aesthetic. "Phenomenal Woman" will live on Mvula's upcoming album, The Dreaming Room, set to release June 17.
