Lisbeth Scott Lisbeth Scott

A sought after voice and song writer of film and television, Lisbeth Scott  founded The Forgotten Dream Project, helping women in the South Central area of Los Angeles with micro grants to pursue studies in education and the arts. [www.forgottendreamproject.com]

As a child I was given the gift of many challenges. My mother was mentally ill—raging, suicidal, and nursing a bottle most days. My father was absent much of the time, and when present, sexualized me. Irrational behavior was the norm. I found peace sitting at the piano, playing whatever came out. I could breathe there. Through my music, I channelled the pain I was feeling.

This continued for many years, through a college degree in piano performance. After college, I found the courage to open my mouth and sing. Something I’d felt as a rumble in my stomach for years, but had never dared to do. The world stopped and looked up!

Since then I’ve had a wonderful career as a singer/songwriter in film. I’ve also released over nine albums as a solo artist. But, while my career has been bubbling along, my personal life has been in shambles. I married a man who raped me and got me pregnant. I married him because I didn’t want to hurt his feelings. I married a man who openly slept with other women. I supported a homeless man for a year and a half. I tolerated a huge amount of rage and abuse. I attempted suicide three times, each time saved by a dear friend.

I literally gave all my money away to these men until I had nothing. My dearest friends would lend me money and pick me up after each disaster. Clearly I never understood how to put myself first, or how to honor who I truly was…because I didn’t know.

Today I understand these experiences as gifts on the road to myself. I also know I never would’ve made it through without help. A year and a half ago I was moved to start The Forgotten Dream Project. I know what it’s like to be a woman, feel alone, shameful, hopeless, and have no awareness of my own power.

As I open up my own wings, I learn to honor myself and let the largest part of me be free. As a result, I want to share with others in the hopes that it can provide the small helping hand that my friends provided me during my worst times. We all deserve that.
