“I am honored to bring her story to life and to direct this project”
A longer version of Madonna’s statement announcing her work on Taking Flight has been posted on her Instagram:
So excited to be able to bring the story of this rare and talented soul to the world! Michaela’s journey resonates with me deeply as both an artist and an activist who understands adversity. We have a unique opportunity to shed light on a dire situation in Sierra Leone and let Michaela be the voice for all the orphaned children she grew up with. I am honored to bring her story to life and to direct this project.
