For far too long former President Barack Obama has had a monopoly on the Presidential Playlist genre. Well step aside Obama, Lewis and Clark's very own Robin Holmes Sullivan has got a list of her own and as you'll see, she's got a theme.

Below you'll find Robin Holmes Sullivan's current favorite tunes to feel confident and courageous, just like, in her words, a diva.

1. "Chariot"by Mega

RHS: I love divas who belt out songs. She is so positive and gleeful. This is my current fav.

2. "Fall for You" by Leela James

RHS: Again, big divas belting it out. Had me at hello.

3. "What About Us" by P!nk

RHS: P!nk is one of the women I really admire. I love her voice and energy.

4. "Light On" by Maggie Rogers

RHS: I am a sucker for a sad song. This one is only a little sad but I think she ends up being ok.

5. "This Is Me by Kesha"

RHS: When I am feeling unsure of something I listen to music that gives me courage. This one is one I go to often.

6. "Daddy Lessons" by Beyonce (feat. The Chicks)

RHS: Ms. B is the bomb-dotcom. Full stop.

7. "mercy" by Joy Oladokun and Tim Gent

RHS: Like the beat, love the lyrics.

8. "Dear Mr. President" by P!nk

RHS: I am a very politically oriented person. This song says a lot.

9. "For My Hand" by Burna Boy (feat. Ed Sheeran)

RHS: Divas are not just female. Burna is a total diva. Love his smoky voice.

10. "Golden" by Jill Scott

RHS: Jill is my ultimate. Her songs are powerful, sensual and soulful.

11. "Words" by Anthony David (feat. India Arie)

RHS: I have been listening to India for 30 years. Love scorned is my jam.

12. "Rise Up" by Andra Day

RHS: Diva supreme. When I need to build up my confidence I listen to this.
