The “Nevertheless” Portrait Project: Inspiring Women, Week 6

Once a week Inspirer will feature a selection of drawings by our staff photographer, Annie Govekar. The drawings are part of the “Nevertheless” portrait project which feature inspiring women and their quotes. This week the “Nevertheless” portraits will continue to highlight women featured in Inspirer’s “Induct These Women” series.

Dionne Warwick

Quote taken from tampabay.com interview, 2017.

Dionne Warwick met legendary composer Burt Bacharach in 1960 and went from background singer to the voice of a generation. The tenderness and vulnerability in Warwick’s voice brought songs like “Don’t Make Me Over” and “This Empty Place” to life and turned them into instant, early classics. Her sound was synonymous with the 60’s, and she became a part of an era that would forever change the course of the music industry.

Cher

Quote taken from TIME Magazine interview,  2016.

If ever there was a woman who embodies what it means to truly have it all, that woman would be Cher.  Throughout her incredible career, the rock n’ roll icon has won honors across the entertainment industry including an Academy Award, a Grammy Award, an Emmy Award, three Golden Globe Awards, a Cannes Film Festival Award and a Fashion Award from the CFDA.

Suzi Quatro

Quote taken from 100 Percent Rock Magazine interview, 2015.

Suzi Quatro was the first female bassist to rise to stardom. Let that sink in for a minute. Before she came along, no women bass players in rock and roll had achieved the sort of independent fame Quatro managed. Because of this, she became a pioneer for women in the music industry, smashing down walls and allowing others to tread the path she blazed.

More about the Nevertheless Project:

The “Nevertheless” project is an art project that features a quote and portrait of an inspiring woman every day. The goal of the project is to run for 365 days while inspiring, motivating and educating. The idea for this project came along while I was commiserating over the current state of the world with my friend. I asked “What can I even do?” My friend simply responded with “Your art.” This resonated with me and the project was started shortly after. My hope is to lift people up by shinning the light on badass women. Some you may know, some you may not. We would love to hear who inspires you and who you think should be featured.
