    I see beauty. Last night, I squeeze into cab with my fabulous, new 82 years young friend after she dragged me out of my pajamas to play an impromptu song at the Friar’s Club.

Lourds is the book, music and lyrics writer of the Broadway-bound musical, “Chix6” – a story about a female comic book artist who learns how to love herself with the help of her own superheroine creations. She’s also the founder and creator of the SuperYou FUNdation, impacting tens of thousands of youth in schools globally by helping them realize “the Superhero is YOU.”
