Today, Google Doodle celebrates Maya Angelou's 90th birthday, with one of her most famous poems "Still I rise"  The poem is read Round Robin by Maya Angelou, Alicia Keys, America Ferrara, Martina McBride, Guy Johnson, Laverne Cox and Oprah Winfrey. It is also fabulously animated and illustrated by Google Doodle.
