Victoria Amidou Soared in 2016

As I have looked over this year at the progress that Victoria Amidou has made I can’t help but smile. This woman has not only took off running, she soared! I recently interviewed Victoria Amidou and one of my key questions to her was, what made you decide that 2016 was the year to finally release your long awaited projects?

She laughed and said, I did not make the decision. It was made for me. Before I could ask her to elaborate, she said, I decided that El Shaddai, Poetically Me, and For True were just going to be for me. In my mind they were never going to be released. I planned to create new projects. Those kind of projects that made people smile and giggle. You know the ones where there’s no hurt and pain.

However, the Universe had another plan for me. One in which I would buck against initially. I read El Shaddai repeatedly after I wrote it and every time I did it was painful. I felt that my truth needed to remain blanketed. You know, covered.

I wondered why the Universe had chosen this year for me because these projects laid dormant for years. So I prayed for the answer and what I received was so simple yet so profound. “It’s time.”

It’s time was my answer, so on January 23, 2016 I started the reformatting process of El Shaddai and on February  5, 2016 El Shaddai was officially published. My other two projects; Poetically Me and For True were officially published on March 15, 2016.

Since then I have been basking in this journey. Taking every moment as it comes and trusting that I can and I will keep evolving into a better me and by being a better me I can and will assist others who are in the infant stages of their journeys to becoming a better them.

I am happily looking forward to 2017 and what the Universe has prepared for me. I’m   soaring like an eagle to my destiny by gently and lovingly accepting the me that I have grown to be and anticipating with grace the me that I will be.

Happy New Year and thank you for being as you say, my number one fan and for taking this journey with me. Your positive vibes and support are a God sent. I send abundance and overflow your way as we end 2016’s journey and enter into 2017’s journey. May peace, joy, and love reign like never before in our lives.

Now you all see why I am a fan of this amazing woman. Victoria Amidou has successfully launched her books and Cd along with traveling across this country promoting her projects as well as speaking to and motivating others along her way.

Victoria Amidou has in 2016 graciously shared the floor with some of the top names in the industry like Timbaland, Brian McKnight, Desmond Child, Erica and Wrryn Campbell, Pat Benatar, Neil Giraldo, Paul Williams, Jason Poo Bear Boyd, LaShawn Daniels, Priscilla Renea, James Fauntleroy, Harmony Samuels, Rebecca Crews, Omar Tyree, Wendell Pierce, Mathew Knowles, TD Jakes, Joel Osteen, Sheryl Underwood, and this is just a partial list.

2017 promises to be even more star studded and rewarding to say the least. Victoria Amidou already has a full schedule ahead of her and I am eagerly anticipating what’s next for her. Congratulations Victoria Amidou on your success. Well done!victoria-amidou-promo-photo-12312016

Victoria Amidou attended the 2016 National Black Book Festival in Houston, Texas

Victoria Amidou hosted her book signing and meet and greet at The National Black Book Festival in Houston, Texas. The event was held at Fallbrook Church on Walters Road October 27-29.

Victoria Amidou was among fellow authors Mathew Knowles, Omar Tyree, and Wendell Pierce.

Victoria Amidou not only spoke about her books El Shaddai and Poetically Me, she also spoke about future events in which she will be traveling aboard to continue her passion.

Victoria Amidou is not only an author, she is also an international public speaker who passionately motivates everyone that comes in her pathway. She teaches methods of healing to those that are broken.

Victoria Amidou’s gift from God was cultivated in the midst of what she calls her shattered pieces, those pieces coming from being broken over, and over again. These repeated breaks left behind fragments so small that only the spiritual eye could see. Now mended and on a quest to teach the keys to bearing the pain while birthing the promise.

Victoria Amidou stands firm in the fact that you can’t get to the promise without going through the pain. Numbing the pain through self-medication and denial only delays the healing process. Stay tuned because you may just see Victoria Amidou in a city near you.

Victoria Amidou will make an appearance at the 2016 National Black Book Festival.

Victoria Amidou is set to make an appearance at the National Black Book Festival in Houston, Texas on October 27-29, 2016. She will be autographing copies of her current books titled “El Shaddai and Poetically Me.”

Victoria Amidou will also be participating in the Poetry Grand Slam which will be taking place on October 29, 2016.

So if you are in the Houston, Texas area stop by and be blessed. This is sure to be a life changing event. Motivating, encouraging, and uplifting.

Victoria Amidou sets release date for her album For True

VICTORIA AMIDOU FOR TRUE FINALIZED COVER 02182016Victoria Amidou has set the date of March 15, 2016, to release her “For True” album and I must say that it is, to say the least, phenomenal. I have been privy to hear the samples and the buzz is that track 7 titled “Kitti” will be pre-released as early as March 08, 2016.

“Kitti” is a very sensual poem which has been labeled explicit. So I wanted to know why? so I contacted Victoria Amidou and asked what is the reason for the explicit poem written by the minister herself? and did she think that it would cause controversy in her ministry?

What she had to say actually humbled me. Victoria Amidou explained to me that it is a shame that we live in a society of judgemental and hypocritical people who look for any reason to condemn who they deem to be leaders in the community. She stated that when taking up the cross and accepting the chosen path that God has placed her on that she knew that there would be challenges and that she was prepared. Victoria Amidou went on to say that “Kitti” does not contain any profanity, however, it is very detailed and graphic in nature.

Victoria Amidou then went on to tell me that the bible is one of the most sensual books ever written. She stated that there is a book in the bible titled “Song of Solomon” and how this book is very sensual and how it graphically talks of the love, passion, and intimacy between man and wife. Victoria Amidou also went on to say that there is not one topic nor situation that the Holy Bible doesn’t cover.

Victoria Amidou I must say is not like any other minister that I have ever come across. The candidness and honesty that comes from her moved me. She is down to earth with a sense of humor. I am anticipating the release of “For True.” Be on the look out for Victoria Amidou because she will surely be the buzz around town.

VICTORIA AMIDOU FOR TRUE FINALIZED COVER 02182016

I have had the pleasure to sit down and conversate with Victoria Amidou and I must say that it was nothing short of amazing. This woman has motivated me to even start writing.

Victoria Amidou caught my attention when I came across an article written about her on Music Crowns. I then googled her and watched her videos on Youtube and decided to contact her.

She told me about the first book titled “El Shaddai” on Amazon and instructed me to read the free sample before I purchased. I must say that I was captivated, to say the least. Those three chapters had me craving more so I quickly ordered the book. It taught me to look at everything in my life from a fresh perspective and as if that wasn’t enough she also informed me that there is more to come.

Victoria Amidou has decided to release not just another book but also a CD! Yes, Victoria Amidou will be releasing a book titled “Poetically Me” on Amazon and a cd titled “For True” on Itunes, both to drop March 15, 2016. A must read and a must listen to. So go check out this artist on the rise. Trust me when I say that you will not regret it.
