Featuring FIERCE artists that have UNITED to promote global LOVE & EQUALITY!
A Note from Norwood:
As I prepared to embark on the “Tour de Fierce” (a 4 month, 5 country European tour to promote love and equality), I wanted to find a way to bring other talented, like-minded artists along for the journey. I’ve been supported by so many artists over the years, and I wanted to “pay it forward” by helping to promote other independent artists. So my team and I created the “Tour de Fierce Compilation CD” to distribute at EuroPride 2018 in Gothenburg, Sweden, and included some of the best artists from around the world! The songs from the CD are featured below. We invite you to visit their websites, follow them on social media, and support them by purchasing their songs.
Peace and Love!

"Take it Out on the Dance Floor" is taken from her second studio album "Sing My Heart Out", released in 2016. The track represents that ‘Friday feeling’ we all get after a long, stressful week at work where everyone downs tools for the weekend and dances their inhibitions away.

Peter is an Atlanta-baed Hip-Hop/R&B solo artist. He has always been on stage, but not in the way you think.
For 19 years Peter was oppressed by an apocalyptic cult, known as Jehovah’s Witnesses. They trained him to carry himself as a follower of Jesus Christ. The goal? Obtain more members. Yet, Peter always wanted something more. “I got tired of people telling me what to do.”
After finally coming to terms with his sexuality, Peter removed himself from the congregation in 2015. Friends and most family members ceased all contact with him. One can only imagine the shock as everything and everyone he once knew ended.
Consumed by depression and self abuse, Peter then realized in order to see a light at the end of the tunnel one MUST become the light. He took his stage presence and singing ability to Nashville to record his first single, "Ride it Out".
