Papa Knowles aka Matthew Knowles shared a bit of inspiration about pursuing your dreams. In this Fox News clip, the 60 year-old father talked about paying attention to the passions of his daughters, Beyonce and Solange, while raising to them. He shared a bit on his personal experience of dealing with racial barriers while growing up as a young African-American male in the 60s and 70s. He ends the clip by stressing the power of not giving up on his American dream as well as that of his daughters. Mr. Knowles goes as far as mentioning Kelly Rowland as one of his daughters. Awww.
“I tell young people, ‘Never give up on your dreams.’ It won’t happen the first time. Even Destiny’s Child, they got dropped by a major record label before they got signed. I just think that one of the things we always have to remember is that it’s not always going to be perfection. I think that if we realize that and we work towards a common goal, inside of negativity often is an opportunity. It’s the great thing about change as we discuss change in America.”
