  • BUT HE'S LEARNING, TOO, BECAUSE THEY'RE NOW HAVING TO DO THE

  • VIRTUAL SCHOOLING AND EVERYTHING, AND, OBVIOUSLY, ALL

  • THE KIDS ARE FIGURING OUT JUST HOW THAT EXPERIENCE FEELS.

  • >> Stephen: HOW ARE YOU STAYING CALM?

  • BECAUSE THERE'S A LOT OF ANXIETY RIGHT NOW AND A LOT OF PRESSURE.

  • AGAIN, THERE'S AMAZING HOW MUCH WORK THERE IS TO DO WHEN YOU

  • CAN'T GO TO WORK.

  • WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO KEEP YOURSELF CENTERED?

  • >> I DEFINITELY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A MEDITATOR, AND THAT'S

  • SOMETHING THAT REALLY HELPS ME A LOT, AND IT GIVES ME PEACE AND

  • SOLACE AND JUST A MOMENT IN TIME TO BE IN MY OWN SPACE.

  • SO I'M BIG ON MEDITATING.

  • I TRY MY BEST TO DO IT EVERY MORNING.

  • >> Stephen: COULD YOU TALK ME THROUGH A MEDITATION?

  • I NEED A LITTLE SOMETHING TO CENTER MYSELF SOMETIMES.

  • ANY TIPS?

  • >> YEAH, I GOT TIPS.

  • FIRST, YOU KNOW, I WOULD RECOMMEND THAT YOU GET UP EARLY

  • SO THAT YOU DON'T HAVE DISTRACTIONS.

  • >> Stephen: OKAY, EARLY.

  • EARLY OR LATE, DOESN'T MATTER.

  • >> Stephen: LET'S SAY SOMEWHERE AROUND MIDNIGHT.

  • >> MIDNIGHT IS PERFECT.

  • WHATEVER TIME YOU HAVE, GRAB IT.

  • SO THEN WHAT I WOULD DO, DOESN'T MATTER, YOU CAN SIT IN THE BED,

  • YOU CAN SIT ON THE COUCH, YOU CAN SIT ON THE FLOOR, WHATEVER

  • YOU NEED TO DO, YOU JUST KIND OF SIT UP STRAIGHT.

  • YOU CAN PUT YOUR HANDS PALMS UP IN YOUR LAP, AND PALMS UP

  • REPRESENTS RECEIVING.

  • >> Stephen: MM-HMM.

  • I'M THERE.

  • >> THERE YOU GO.

  • AND THEN YOU'RE GOING TO BREATHE IN.

  • LET'S BREATHE IN.

  • EXHALE.

  • BREATHE IN AGAIN.

  • EXHALE.

  • AND BASICALLY YOU CAN GO ON AND DO THAT ABOUT TEN BREATHS IS

  • REALLY GOOD.

  • THEN THE OTHER THING I LIKE TO DO, LAST THING, IS I LIKE TO ASK

  • FOR WHAT YOU NEED.

  • IF YOU NEED A LITTLE CALM OR YOU NEED A LITTLE PEACE OR YOU NEED

  • A LITTLE MORE STRENGTH OR YOU NEED A LITTLE MORE PATIENTS OR

  • YOU NEED A LITTLE BIT MORE TIME OR SLEEP, WHATEVER IT IS YOU

  • MIGHT NEED, GO AHEAD AND ASK FOR IT, YOU KNOW, IN YOUR HEAD, OR

  • OUT LOUD.

  • >> Stephen: I NEED A STUDIO AUDIENCE BACK.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) >> I DON'T KNOW -- I DON'T KNOW

  • IF THAT'S GOING TO WORK FOR YOU, BRO, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT --

  • >> Stephen: I KNOW IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN.

  • >> IT'S COMING EVENTUALLY.

  • IT'S GOING TO BE BACK.

  • THERE YOU GO.

  • WHOO!

  • >> Stephen: YOU AND YOUR NONPROFIT, SHE IS A MUSIC

  • PARTNER WITH AMAZON MUSIC TO RAISE MONEY FOR MUSIC CARES

  • COVID 19 RELIEF FUND.

  • >> YES, VERY SPECIAL TO ME ABOUT BRINGING MORE ENTREPRENEURS AND

  • CREATIVES TO THE TABLE, TO THE INDUSTRY, SO WE WERE ABLE TO

  • PARTNER WITH AMAZON HAS BEEN AN INCREDIBLE PARTNER, AND WE WERE

  • ABLE TO RAISE $100,000.

  • >> Stephen: NOW, YOU ALSO HAVE A NEW MEMOIR, MORE MYSELF.

  • >> I DON'T LIKE TO CALL IT A MEMOIR.

  • >> Stephen: LEGALLY, I HAVE TO SAY WHAT'S ON THE CARD.

  • >> OH, WHO DID THAT?

  • >> Stephen: I DON'T KNOW.

  • I LIKE TO CALL IT A JOURNEY.

  • A MEMOIR MAKES ME FEEL LIKE I'M SECONDS AWAY FROM DYING OR

  • SOMETHING.

  • IT DOESN'T FEEL RIGHT.

  • SO I THINK A JOURNEY BECAUSE WE'RE ALL IN PROCESS.

  • >> Stephen: OKAY.

  • I'M A BABY.

  • I'M NOT ABOUT TO DIE.

  • >> Stephen: I UNDERSTAND.

  • BUT PLEASE CONTINUE.

  • YOU WERE TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT IT.

  • >> Stephen: I WAS JUST TELLING YOU IT WAS PUBLISHED ON OPRAH'S

  • BOOK IMPRINT.

  • IT'S THE FIRST BOOK PUBLISHED ON OPRAH'S BOOK IMPRINT.

  • THAT'S A SPECIAL FEELING.

  • >> ISN'T THAT COOL?

  • OPRAH HAS HER OWN IMPRINT ALONG WITH FLAT IRON, SO WE ARE DOING

  • THIS BOOK TOGETHER, AND SHE WANTED TO HELP ME CREATE THIS

  • MOMENT.

  • THE BOOK IS CALLED "MORE MYSELF," AND IT'S REALLY ABOUT

  • THE JOURNEY WE ALL HAVE TO BECOME MORE OF OURSELVES.

  • >> Stephen: HOW DO WE BECOME MORE?

  • >> YOU KNOW, I THINK WHAT HAPPENS IS YOU START TO BECOME

  • WHO YOU THINK PEOPLE WANT YOU TO BE, OR YOU START TO BEHAVE IN A

  • WAY THAT YOU THINK IS GOING TO GET YOU FARTHER IN LIFE, OR YOU

  • START TO COMPRESS WHO YOU ACTUALLY ARE BECAUSE YOU DON'T

  • GET TO KNOW YOURSELF, YOU START TO CONTORT YOURSELF TO BE

  • WHATEVER SOMEONE TOLD YOU YOU SHOULD BE.

  • SO THE PROCESS OF BECOMING MORE IS A PERSONAL JOURNEY.

  • AND HOW DO WE BECOME MORE?

  • SHOOT, I'M ALSO STILL MAKING SURE I'M FIGURING THAT OUT, AND

  • THIS BOOK IS A PART OF MY JOURNEY AND HOW I'VE BECOME

  • CLOSER TO MY AUTHENTICSELF AND BEEN ABLE TO HEAR MY VOICE AND,

  • YOU KNOW, NOT LET THE NOISE GET IN THE WAY.

  • >> Stephen: YOUR UPCOMING ALBUM ALICIA WAS POSTPONED

  • BECAUSE OF THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC BREAKING OUT.

  • WE WERE HOPING TO HAVE YOU ON A FEW WEEKS AGO TO HAVE YOU

  • PERFORM.

  • BUT I UNDERSTAND YOU HAVE A SPECIAL SONG FOR US TONIGHT.

  • >> I DO.

  • I MEAN, YOU KNOW, I THOUGHT THAT, DURING THESE

  • CIRCUMSTANCES, YOU KNOW, WE ARE ALL FEELING HOW WE'RE FEELING,

  • AND IT'S TRICKY FOR US, AND WE'RE JUST TRYING TO FIGURE IT

  • OUT, SO I WANTED TO DO SOMETHING BASED OFF ONE OF MY FLOW RIDER

  • SONGS.

  • SO BIG UP TO FLOW RIDER.

  • >> Stephen: YOU'VE GOT A FRIEND THERE.
