During 2020, singer, songwriter, recording artist, and author, Linda Washington, rose to prominence with her single “Missing You” ft. Superstar Lamar. After a long battle with breast cancer and an abusive relationship, the nurse, and mother of four, wrote and produced the R&B and Soul single, to help other cancer survivors find their way back to love. The project was meant to permeate love into the hearts of breast cancer survivors by making them believe that they are as important as they were before diagnostics, and that their identity is far grander than just being pinned down to a belittling breast cancer tag.
Linda Washington has since continued to release music with a purpose and message, spreading as much positive love as she can. Aside from creating music, Linda has also written the book “Forbidden And Broken – Finding Love Behind The Scars”, which chronicles her battle with breast cancer.
Moreover, she has founded Strength of a Survivor, a platform where she can interact with her audience. She also communicates with her community through weekly live streams, and various events where she performs her music.
