Who are you?
My name is Will Liverman. I am Strong, Empowered, and Classy.
What do you do?
I am an opera singer by trade.
What are you passionate about?
I have a passion for the gift of music!
Strength refers to the quality or state of being strong; bodily or muscular power; vigor; mental power, force; moral power, firmness, courage; power by reason of influence, authority, resources, numbers, etc. What makes you strong? Tell us how it strengthens you.
I would say I have a lot of good mental power. Helps me put my life into perspective.
Empowerment refers to increasing the spiritual, political, social, educational, gender, or economic strength of individuals and communities. Where does your sense of empowerment derive from?
The Lord strengthens me!
Classy refers to being elegant, stylish; having or reflecting high standards of personal behavior; admirably skillful and graceful. How important is it to maintain a sense of class in your life or field?
It’s very imperative in my field to dress nice and have a sense of fashion. In the opera world, there aren’t that many African Americans representing, so the few that are have to do it right!
Life is truly a journey. Are you proud of where and who you are right now? Why?
I’d say I’m happy with where I am. Lyric Opera of Chicago is one of the top opera companies in the world and I am proud to perform there. Every time I walk into the building I am reminded of how fortunate I am.
If you had the opportunity to speak to the masses, what would you say?
Be different. Take risks. Be smart!
