Music is a powerful tool of universal change, a mirror reflecting the things going on around us as they reassure, soothe, inspire and educate us, changing society like no other art form. In this sea of tunes and lyrics, Canadian artist Garcia Douglas stands out. Her unique style, powerful vocals and distinctive flair on tracks are second to none.
Garcia Douglas started her musical journey as a child, singing in church choirs and performing at school. Every opportunity to sing was a great one for the young artist, and she passionately entertained people, even as a backup artist or in a group. As she grew older, her passion deepened, and she continued to sing, albeit with more profound, more soulful messages. Her music style has such depth and richness to it. Its cheerful, uplifting vibe inspires and motivates listeners worldwide.
At the peak of the global pandemic, Garcia, like many other artists, turned to songwriting to find the lyrics and tune to help others live through the heartbreaking year and find hope to keep on living, bringing them together in the harmonious cord. She shared, “Being creative gives me a whole new world to explore and enjoy.” She continued, “I have learned a lot through life. When I was much younger, I couldn’t communicate what I wanted to very well, but now I’m in a place where I feel I have more to offer. I have lots of world experience, and I don’t want to keep what I’ve learned to myself. I want to help everyone and show them how to get through some things better than I did. I want to inspire others to live their dreams, no matter their age or where they are in life. It’s never too late to do something great.”
Garcia said she believes deeply in a world where we all are equal, and she hopes her music will help bring about some of that unity. That’s not a manufactured sentiment, either. If there’s one thing fans of Garcia’s music can be assured of, it’s that her art is authentic. It comes from whatever she’s feeling in the moment, and when you listen to one of her tracks, it’s almost as if you’re standing right beside her as she pours out her heart.
Her music is currently available on all streaming platforms, and it encourages people to do their parts in affecting positive changes around the world. In an interview, the soul-inspiring artist shared her motivation. She said, “We’re stronger together. But we’re so divided right now. And I want to bridge and close that gap and find a way for us to work together. My daughter is seven, and she has seen the chaos of the world; and she’s so curious and wants to understand why things are happening and what’s going on. So I want to create a new world for her and all her children. I want to say, ‘Look at us. Look how well we worked together.’ We have to lead by example. So I want to be able to show people on a big scale how to look beyond our differences.”
Aside from her music, she also wrote the book It’s Time to Be Inspired. In the book, she inspires and motivates readers to live with more happiness, purpose, hope, and peace—a life of freedom and triumph!
