Rockin' Joy Rose & Daughter Zena

The list is LONG when you consider all that Joy has accomplished considering where she was 15 years ago…. a stay at home mom with 4 kids….

Then days after her youngest was born, she was diagnosed with Lupus, which in her case was life-threatening… Fast-forward seven years, multiple hospital stays and one kidney transplant later, Joy was back and she made a commitment to do everything she could to empower herself and other women to lead better lives.

Here’s my favorite part… She became a rock star… FOR REALS!!!

As the lead singer of her band Housewives on Prozac, her post-recovery mission began – not only did she go out to perform with her band but she was creating a venue for women!! and that’s when Mamapalooza was born, a series of festivals across the country that generate community awareness of cultural, social and economic issues while showcasing mom-music performers and women-owned businesses. 

Joy Rose is a modern Media Mom and is a nationally recognized, award-winning producer, writer and activist. A feminist mom with four children, she is a NOW Susan B. Anthony award recipient, who works with MamaZtv Online TV for Women, New York Talk Radio with her show Don’t Tell Me To Shut Up, Women’s Alternative Network, WBAI Radio at The Women’s Desk (New York’s Neighborhood Radio Station) Association For Research on Mothering, Mothers Centers, International Mothers Network and more. She is also the publisher of Mamazina, formally known as Mom Writers Literary Magazine and founder of The Mom EggMuseum Of MotherhoodHousewives On Prozac band and the Mom Rock movement she is an activist for women in the arts and beyond. Pursuing Radio & Video Excellence, Web Advancement and Visibility for Women In The Media.

Did you catch all that? Best of all, Joy is bringing her voice… to Mingle Media TV. It’s a loving, yet powerful one that speaks up for women, all women and we’re excited that she’s going to use our network to speak from.

Earth Day Celebration: Free to Be Me Drum Circle w/Mamapalooza

We were very fortunate to have an opportunity to join in a drum circle at the 40th Celebration of Earth Day on the Santa Monica Promenade on the 17th of April.

Have you been to a drum circle? It’s quite an experience, listen to Sabina as she explains how it benefits you and helps you “get out of your head” and feel the rhythm.
