Top-Ranked U.S. Figure Skater Starr Andrews Performs Routine to Mickey Guyton’s “Black Like Me” [Watch]

Top-ranked U.S. figure skater Starr Andrews, 19, performed a choreographed routine to Mickey Guyton’s powerful new ballad, “Black Like Me.”

Co-penned by Mickey, Nathan Chapman, Emma Davidson-Dillon and Fraser Churchill, “Black Like Me” addresses racial inequality in America—delivered with soaring vocals from one of the few minority artists in the country genre.

Starr, who is among the best U.S. skaters, is currently ranked No. 19 in the world by the International Skating Union.

“Hi, my name is Starr Andrews, and I wanted to thank Mickey Guyton for singing this wonderful song, ‘Black Like Me,’” says Starr in her new video of the performance. “It inspired me so much that I just had to skate to it. This program, choreographed by Derrick Delmore, honors the struggles that African Americans have and still are enduring.”

Thomas Rhett takes 2020 Lessons Learned Into 2021

Thomas Rhett takes 2020 Lessons Learned Into 2021

2020 was a year that taught us all a lot. Thomas Rhett reflects on the year we just left behind, and what he will take with him into this new year, “You know, 2020 has definitely been hard in many ways, especially for a lot of different families who have either lost work or people that have been on the front lines working in hospitals, or teachers trying to teach three year olds how to learn their letters and their numbers. But for us, I think 2020 has had several silver linings, and for me, I think I was going at such a rapid pace that 2020 definitely forced me to slow down. And so I hope I can take that mindset back into 2021.”
