In this episode I’m joined by American singer, songwriter and philanthropist Hilary Roberts.
Hilary captures attention powerfully, and at times I almost forget I’m supposed to be interviewing her! She’s honest, open, extremely likeable and has a fascinating story to tell.
She tells me about her struggles with addiction and abusive past, and how she was able to overcome these and become a successful singer.
We talk about the foundation Hilary started to help others with similar struggles, and how moving to Dallas helped her to get better.
Then we talk about her career, how she got into singing, and the new songs she’s recorded that are ready for release…
“I never thought that I could experience life with joy, freedom, peace, relief, and have a healthy intimate relationship because of what I’d been through. But it is through getting help that I have a life which is beyond my wildest dreams.” – Hilary Roberts
