Meet Cordelia Moye of Cordelia Moye

Today we’d like to introduce you to Cordelia Moye.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Cordelia. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Funny enough… my journey in the arts got started with me being laid off from a job. That journey led me to write books (I’ve authored nine so far). That led me to songwriting, poetry and eventually a whole lot of other gifts and talents I didn’t know I had emerged.

Now… I host a talk show. As well as occasional motivational speaking. Losing that particular job at that point in my life has got to be the best thing that has ever happened to me oddly enough. Thank you to that person… you changed my life forever. Currently, I’m hosting an open mic set once a month at Z-Gallery Art Space in Roxbury. Which showcase local artist.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has definitely been a challenge to break into the entertainment industry. People telling you you’re not going to make it. That the route your taking will get you nowhere (I don’t edit my books) and people told me that I wouldn’t be taken seriously for that reason. But I’m nine books in… I think I’m pretty serious. Paving your own path takes really believing in yourself more than anything. People always put out the negatives in life before they encourage. I found I had to be my best cheerleader to block out any negativity.

Cordelia Moye – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I do so many things… But I would say I’m best known for my talk show Cordelia’s Passion. My show is cool because I ask quirky off beat questions. And the premise of my show is to have a local artist come on the show and just loosen up a bit. Whether it’s a hip-hop artist, writers, poets, fashion designers. I don’t ask serious questions. When you’re on my show it’s about fun for thirty minutes or so. And I’m most proud that I can make people laugh.

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
My proudest moment would be going to New York to work the red carpet for Urban World Film Festival 2017. I interviewed the cast of OWN Networks shows Queen Sugar as well as the director Ava DuVernay. It was such a rush. And surprisingly enough I was quite comfortable and in my element. But it was such a humbling experience to go from being a spectator to a participant.
