Most Powerful Voices is an initiative of the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Power To End Stroke cause campaign. Power To End Stroke reaches African-Americans with stroke messages because of their disproportionate stroke risks compared to other ethnic groups. During the Twitter Chat, we will be discussing stroke prevention tips as well as hearing stories from survivors and their families. Michelle will be judging the finalists in the competition and will be tweeting with us about stroke risks.
“I am honored to be involved with the Most Powerful Voices gospel singing competition, because it shines a light on stroke,” Williams said. “This is very important to me because my father had a stroke in 2005 due to smoking, diabetes and an unhealthy lifestyle. His stroke left him debilitated, robbing him of his ability to talk and walk. The very next year, my grandmother suffered from stroke and I’m sad to say that she is no longer with us. My father and grandmother’s strokes have devastated my family.”
