Motherhood is a blessing, and singer Vivian Green certainly agrees with that sentiment. In fact, Green would say that her son Jordan, who was born in 2004 with an unknown syndrome that affects his bones and wasn’t expected to live past a week, is a bona fide miracle. This upcoming Mother’s Day weekend Green will be sharing the stage with music greats Maxwell and Gladys Knight on Saturday, May 12th at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall as part of a three-day R&B musical celebration created by Platinum Productions and Big Bloc Entertainment (now in its 10th year).
SoulBounce caught up with Green, an accomplished singer, songwriter and piano player who got her start singing background vocals for Jill Scott and recording at Boyz II Men’s recording studio at age 15 as well as co-writing the group’s hit song “Dear God” at the tender age of 17, to discuss her latest album VGVI (featuring the hit song “I Don’t Know”), motherhood and her mission to bring awareness to special needs children by way of her advocacy campaign I Am Different, I Am Human. True to her 2002 hit single “Emotional Rollercoaster,” motherhood can be challenging but the rewards are great and the ride is extraordinary.
