This man is my current muse....he reminds me of Nina Simone,, I love his poetic lyrics, the rawness emotions of his voice, unapologetic vulnerability and strength. What a gift! #artist #musicmatters

This year I am blessed to be contributing my art, my voice to the 25th Medicine Wheel Vigil for Day Without Art/ World AIDS Day on December 1st 2016. I will be sharing a piece called ' Remembrance" which is in my new poetry collection out now " Soul Psalms" I will also be singing and collaborating with my friend Bo Lembo.
If you are in Boston , be part of this moving experience honoring those we lost from AIDS and those still here. #medicinewheelproductions #soulpsalms #artivism
