In our lives, we have all struggled with some form of self-doubt and like most of us, Sabria Larae is no stranger to it. She uses her music as an outlet to express her past insecurities.
The Charles County native is a contemporary R&B Singer-Songwriter who creates music based on honest life experiences that many of us face. Friday, June 19th, we featured her single ‘Living,’ inspired by her own experience with depression, anxiety, and self-esteem challenges. The EP received a silver award in the R&B/Urban/Hip-hop category in the 33rd Mid-Atlantic Song Contest. In the song, she mentions, “No more believing lives, no more living blind…and now I’m living, no more existing,” which translates to her gaining the strength to tune out the whispers of her negative and self-doubting thoughts.
Larae is currently working on a new project that uplifts her audiences. Her modern take on R&B paired with positive lyrics is surely something to listen to.
Along with working on music projects, the award-winning artist is in school to earn an undergraduate degree in Music Therapy with a minor in psychology. Larae plans to combine music therapy and mental health counseling with goals of working with special needs children, providing relief to those with Alzheimer’s disease and cancer, and counseling young women experiencing issues with self-esteem and mental health as she once endured.
