Play It For Me Ladies! Top 10 Empowering songs by women

Carol Miller Positivity Leave a Comment

Are you as big of a fan as music as I am? I have it playing in the background most of the time. Sometimes light and relaxing, while other times high energy and loud. I have several favorite musicians and bands that I listen too, yet I often find myself immersed in individual songs rather than listening to just one artist at a time. I also love creating playlists to listen to when in different moods.

I recently asked for help on a women led playlist of songs to inspire and uplift. I already have a playlist that has many of my favorite male musicians, but I wanted something to turn on and get me excited about living MY life at it’s highest level. Some of the songs its the lyrics that are empowering, sometimes it’s the music, and sometimes it’s both.

I always like to be introduced to new music as well, so share in comments your favorite empowering female singers.
