Nearly 4 years in the making, the return of MAPEI has been a long time coming. Born Jacqueline Mapei Cummings in Providence, Rhode Island, she moved to Sweden at age of 10 and started anew with her mother. But being strong is her ace, and she is there to help others too.
“We’re currently living in very political times, which is often exacerbated by the digital age we live in,” said MAPEI. “However, I also see the positive changes that are happening. Thanks to social media, people are coming together like never before. Empowering each other while educating others. I see it, and it gives me hope that we can encourage each other to accept who we are and just be ourselves.”
“I’ve learned not to argue with my truths,” she added. “I’m a person of many contrasts, which is part of the reason why I make music. I’ve always wanted a soundtrack to my world, which is something I’ve been working on since my debut album.”
That is what the world is, and can’t change it.
But just like MAPEI, you can purposefully be stronger, harder, gentler, and vigilant.
If you don’t, who will?
See MAPEI rock it next at Festival Rock the Mountain 2019 in Petrópolis – RJ Brazil.
