A journey into transformational self-empowerment, merging passion with dreams, breaking through boxes, and embracing the ONE ME.

A Woman Evolves (AWE) is the personal story of Coré Cotton, former featured vocalist of the Grammy-winning Sounds of Blackness, of her candid and relatable journey of integrating her passion for music and her dream of practicing law. Told through engaging personal stories and soulful musical renditions, Coré shares an up-close and personal view into the struggle of surviving self-doubt, implicit and explicit bias and the ultimate victory of empowering self-acceptance. While AWE is a full-scale musical production, it is just as much an intimate personal experience for each Traveler. For though AWE is Coré's personal story, it surely represents our collective journey, as human beings.

AWE, through the sponsorship of KoCo Women and Youth Empowerment Foundation, Inc., is shared across local communities across the United States.

AWE premier performances are available for corporate functions and events. Premier Performances may include a post-show informational "talk back" session upon request.


The Empowered Women's Collective (EWC) is an exclusive, invitation only retreat for individuals who are ready to become active members of the EWC Community. If you’ve attended the A Woman Evolves (AWE) experience and/or the Empowered Woman's Masterclass then you’re cordially invited to an intimate gathering of like-minded women on a 3-day get-away with other AWE Travelers and Empowered Women Masters.
