Antonio Woodard – “Worth It” helps you survive
Written by Staff on 27 September 2022
Just what you want, another story! I hope you are surviving the day/week. “Worth It” is euphoric and hits home for anyone feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or need an extra push in life to move forward, whatever that may be. First off, I am a competitor and I know the music industry is competitive to say the very least. While working on music, finishing graduate school and ending my collegiate track and field (which has given me amazing vocal stamina and endurance) career at the 2020ne Olympic Trials, my desire to compete, win, and just perform never stopped. If anything it heightened my desire to be great and serve others with my music on grand and smaller spaces.
I am so blessed, grateful, and fortunate to have the gift to be a singer, songwriter, and performer which all stemmed from my church background, being a part of vocal jazz groups, madrigal choirs, and various a cappella groups throughout high school and college. I was always too shy to even open my mouth to sing and looking back, I cannot imagine a life where I am not utilizing this gift.
There is truly nothing else I would rather be doing than music. No other job or profession fulfills me the way music does, they simply do not cut it. The older I get the more clear it becomes how short life is and that we only have one shot at this.
I would rather die knowing I exhausted every chance and opportunity than to live my life “what if-ing” everything. Whatever it takes, is what I have in me. My inspiration comes from artists like Beyonce, Celine Dion, Brandy, Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Frank Sinatra, Tamela Mann, and Tasha Cobbs-Leonard just to name a few.
