Each reader on the open mic gets a turn to share one poem in the 1st round, and anyone who chooses may have another turn in the 2nd round.
February Feature MAMA
Spoken word artist, MAMA, formerly known as Persephone, is simply an idea. She stands for everything the soul could long for.
Southern born and raised, she expresses the reality for many not brave enough to share their voice yet. She speaks for the minority, for the ones constantly being counted out. Ignored. Overlooked.
MAMA’s official meeting with spoken word came in 2013 and she has been burning down stages since. A catalyst in her career has been a collection of poets by the name of Po’boys and Poets-Nashville, TN where she currently resides.
MAMA speaks in truth and passion for all willing to listen. Using the universal language of love to fuel her performance, she channels an “aura that comes from the great beyond yet resides as an inner essence”–as a supporter has said to her.
She humbly thanks you for being you today.
