(1 p.m. EDT) -- Four-time Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter India.Arie will join the July 15 "Share the Adventure" Alaska sailing of Holland America's Eurodam, featuring Oprah Winfrey, Gayle King and other special guests. Along with India.Arie, the line announced that Angela Davis, a motivational speaker and fitness evangelist, and Glennon Doyle Melton, an author, activist and speaker will also be onboard.
India.Arie had a conversation with Oprah in 2013, surrounding the release of her album "Songversation." According to a Holland America news item, "The performances surrounding its release, including a SuperSoul Session with Oprah Winfrey, were imagined as part meditation, part prayer, part fellowship and part action."
Angela Davis is an international fitness and motivational coach, and former member of the USA Track and Field Team. Today, Davis is known for creating the AMDIO fitness method, and instructs celebrity-attended SoulCycle classes.
Glennon Doyle Melton is the author of the New York Times bestselling memoirs "Carry On, Warrior"and "Love Warrior," which was chosen as one of Oprah's Book Club picks for 2016. Melton is a regular columnist for "O, The Oprah Magazine" and founder of Momastery.com, an online community where she posts personal essays. Melton runs the nonprofit organization Together Rising, which connects online users with families in need.
Lucy Kalin and Gayle King, editors of "O, The Oprah Magazine," are already scheduled to be onboard the Oprah cruise, along with creative director Adam Glassman.
"Having these three inspiring SuperSoul 100 thought leaders join the Share the Adventure cruise along with Oprah Winfrey and editors from "O, The Oprah Magazine" is an incredible and rare opportunity for our guests to be energized to live life to the fullest by a diverse group of visionaries," said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line in a news release.
