"Wait almost show the it is. I like to think it's my second language so I I use it A lot to communicate to tell stories. I write my music so it means I I get to speak the things. I probably couldn't speak out loud Three music and so to get the chance to I guess. Use My voice for her avenue myself out the way and find a voice that felt right for for Harriet to us in the purest sense for communication was really special and where we were. I just felt like it was A little bit like hallowed ground. We WanNA plantation so to be able to sing those rituals For People Oh to to call to people felt really empowering and special and I I hope that it plays a huge role. Oh for people to understand what the story is about to understand what these people were going through. Because I feel like there's no pure way to communicate with anyone to I feel like when you you when you sing you expose yourself completely in I in doing that in this. I hope that that's what people have seen. You know a person who is exposing whose AH is a on this leave and who's trying to to communicate something they cannot say. We're talking with Cynthia. Riva who plays Harriet Tubman in the film. I WANNA play a clip from the movie. Maybe this is the scene where Harriett is talking with. Williams still who is played by Leslie Odom Junior.

Harriet and there's nothing more you can do. Don't can you tell me what I can do. This fall God was watching but my feet was my own running. Bleeding clemen nearly drowned. Nothing for days and days are made it so. Don't tell me what I can't do. That could be a woman in two thousand and nineteen and obviously obviously Harriet. Tubman is an African American slave but this is as contemporary as any movie can be Yeah I think it was. The most important thing for me was really about trying to to bring her to life. You know. People don't know that she had emotions and she had feelings in. She could get angry and she could. You know be joyous and heartbroken all of those things that we as humans experience and and so I I wanted to be as fully emotionally available as it possibly could so that those feelings of a real we all we feel them. I felt them the idea that someone tells you. You can't do something and you're like I know it can do something I know. I know I can do it so i. I don't need you telling me that I can't and You know it just felt like one one of the most it was that was definitely seen. I was looking forward to to shooting because it felt like it was so connected to the real world where I was in my in my time which which is kind of cool. That was Cynthia revoked.
