SZA has been inducted into her high school’s hall of fame, joining a group that includes Lauryn Hill. The TDE singer visited her alma mater, Columbia High School, in Maplewood, New Jersey to accept the special honour and surprisingly sang and delivered a motivational speech to the current students.
Her singing comes as a surprise because she recently announced that her voice has been permanently injured following troubles with her vocal chords, She performed her hit single “The Weekend.”
In her speech, SZA told a room full of screaming students that her success came from the personal drive she had in high school.
“It starts with compassion. It starts with trusting yourself even when people are telling you, you’re too young to trust yourself. My mom used to say idle eyes are the devil’s playground, but I disagree. It’s where you find the details of the inner workings of yourself and figure out what you actually want to do. Daydreaming is actually where this whole thing starts.”
