She's not the average girl in the video, and she taught women all over the world to be more than just their hair. India.Arie is an artist whose vibe is one that you can't be attracted to — you just get swept up in her positive lyrics and soulful voice. There's an honesty that drips from every note and not only do you want to buy her album, she's the type of chick that will make you want drink organic chai tea and do yoga, even if you know you'll hate it.
India's songs have touched the souls of millions around the world, but it's her impact on little (and big!) brown girls everywhere that has made a lasting impact. We saw this multi-talented black woman with her melanin poppin' singing about how much she loves her some brown skin. India was all about how much black lives matter before it was an international movement.
