ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Life went on, unforgettable good days passed and her joy filled son with the million dollar smile was no longer a baby boy. She saw her son trying to become a man – taking life head on. As she witnessed her son’s struggle with peer pressure, family issues and a lack of positive male role models it was then that Felice realized that her voice was not loud enough - she was not her son’s only influence. It was through his pain, his struggle that she recognized the struggle of all young Black men. In the summer of 2003, Felice began to channel her feelings in her journal about the issues she discovered and hoped to one day help resolve.

After a long haul of tears in the principal’s office, juvenile court dates, jail visits, collect calls, letters, miles traveled, probation officers, long suffering and to the gates of hell and back, in the Fall of 2008 her first spoken word album Gen Eyes Wide was born which she wrote and produced, under her record label Modern Day Black Momma Records. A powerful vocal delivery of the Spoken Word is performed with the voice of authority and assertiveness, gracefulness and humility.

Felicia (aka) 'Felice Bois' says: “Had it not been for my faith in God, I would have never found the strength to go on. I understand that youth from all cultural backgrounds deal with similar issues but I was inspired to talk to young Black men because so many young Black men set themselves up as targets for government officials to arrest and jail, and even their own peers are sometimes their worst enemies. I’m speaking to those young men who are struggling in their minds and want to move ahead in life. Open your eyes before it's too late to really live. Most importantly I want troubled young Black men to know that they have a higher purpose in life, but they must be willing to listen and learn to evolve into the men they have the potential to become. I hope that my voice is loud enough this time.”
