“I Am Enough” is a song about the importance of knowing your worth and when Maya declares “I won’t ask you/I’m already enough/You don’t have to approve/I’m already enough” she sets the tone of radical, defiant self-acceptance and love that flows through every track.
Maya continues to be a ‘true inspiration’ on “I AM ENOUGH”, her new EP featuring six powerful anthems.
The singer has been busy performing worldwide lately but she didn’t forget her engagement and passion to deliver important messages with her own music. After months of teasing, Maya is back with “I AM ENOUGH” the EP released on October 21st. It stands as a passionate, eloquent, and infectiously joyous affirmation of self-worth and acceptance. It also serves as a refutation of anybody, or anything seeking to devalue people or break their spirits. Aware that the message will be lost if the music is not good, Maya worked hard with very talented people from different backgrounds around this new EP, including Timo Ellis and Robert Adam Mayer. In a world where people are constantly besieged with circumstances that degrade them, the inspirational and life-giving anthems heard on “I Am Enough” capture the fierce urgency of the moment.
Maya Azucena released an outstanding music video for the title track ‘I Am Enough’ featuring living portraits of “Real Americans” who represent icons of America’s often unsung heroes. Elaborating further on this track, Maya Azucena says: “Simply put, I AM ENOUGH is a dedication to my ancestors, their legacy, and all those that tried to stop us. I think many people, from many life experiences, will find themselves in the message of this song.”
