I was so blessed to spend a few hours at the home of someone who has inspired me greatly in life. Tricia Brock. Also known as the lead singer of Superchic[K], who puts the karate kick behind the words “girl power.”
When I was ten years old, I unwrapped the plastic from my first Superchic[K] C.D. I listened to" One Girl Revolution" one too many times. I ran around the house, pretending I was a secret agent spy, bounding around the corners, ready to pounce on the invisible bad guy. As I grew older and continued listening to Superchic[K]'s rock anthem theme song, “One Girl Revolution,” I became fully convinced...I was a force to be reckoned with. I would make waves in this world. No one would know what hit them.
Superchic[K] encouraged me through my preteen and teenage years. I cried along with “Beauty From Pain,” sang “Bowling Ball” at the top of my lungs when I wanted to pretend I didn't have a crush, and covered my ears in "Alright" when I just wanted to know that everything was going to be okay.
Superchic[K] was my first concert, first favorite C.D., first inspiration to question the cultural norm, and my first video interview!
Tricia and her husband live in a cute little house in the suburbs. Nick (Tricia's husband) was waiting for us on the front porch with one of their two dogs, who was eating up a deflated, worn out old ball. Nick welcomed us as if we were neighbors who came for an afternoon chat over ice tea. I felt all pre-interview jitters slip away in the warm wind before we stepped inside.
Indoors, the living room floor was decorated with toys, proof that a baby lives with them. Sweet Ava was napping, so we quietly weighed our video options and chose where to set up.
The back porch was a beautiful possibility, but we decided to go upstairs to their studio, because of possible wind noise in the mics, or friendly neighbors who might decide to mow their lawn on such a pretty afternoon.
As we set up the room, Nick asked if we wanted to hear some of Tricia's new music (including her single, “Enough"!
My answer? PTSH. Yes! Of course!
Tricia was at a meeting and interview with her label, so we had an hour to continue setting up. We chatted, moved around furniture, and listened to a small sampling of Tricia's latest project.
Superchic[K] fans...be warned, Tricia is back and she's rocking it! If you love her new stuff as much as I do, then we will have no problem getting her album to the top of the charts.
Tricia arrived right on time, and entered the studio loft wearing an outfit that was totally her. The vibe was bold and trendy, glowing with a confidence that shown from her eyes. She got hooked up to her mic, and our camera man did some audio level adjusting, as Tricia and I chatted for a few minutes.
Then, it was time. The cameras were rolling, and they were ready for us to do our thing. I glanced nervously at my index cards and for a split second felt awkward in front of the cameras. Then I remembered how I've never been camera shy! Why would I be nervous now? I grinned, feeling the new confidence rising up within, so thankful for this opportunity, and asked my first question.
Tricia was a natural. She told funny stories, shared her heart with us girls, and once again...left an impact on my life. I had so much fun hearing about her love story with Nick, and admired her passion as she talked about a girl who was bullied at her High School. Tricia talked about how she stood up for her. In High School, Tricia was scared to speak up, but she couldn't NOT say anything about it. Her heart broke at the injustice, and love poured out in a fierce defense of the innocent. Her passion was greater than her fear.
Psalm 82:3-4 says;
"Defend the cause of the weak and the fatherless, maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked."
I hope Tricia's story will move your heart as much as it did mine. If you see injustice, bullying, or unfair treatment happening in your school, church or anywhere...don't be afraid to stand up against it. Like Tricia, you might feel afraid...but say something anyway! You just might safe a life.
Thanks for joining me on my journey so far. There are many more adventures to come as we continue to interview some of your favorite artists! Don't forget to check out Tricia's new single, “Enough”!
Love from your sister in Christ,
