Burnin Mic Open Mic

I’m the first to say you can find talent in all places but  I was  shocked to find it flowing  from My own  womb. I  entered My son into this  poetry writing/spoken word program for the  summer with the  Maya Baraka Institute directed and ran by various National poetry  slam winners and  contestants. The  program is  for youths age 13-20 and  focuses on spoken word and the creative arts with an afro-centric flair.

We were invited to their  first  performance last week which was in the  format of an open mic which was also open to the public sponsored by the Maya Baraka program along with Dew More Baltimore.  The open mic was hosted by the  youths of the program and  many of them blessed us with their talents from singing, to poetry and rapping. I  recorded  quite a few of the performances but no where near all of them nor did I capture what I think were some of the best performances.

Hopefully you will enjoy  a peek into  what you missed. These talented teens and young adults blew Me away.

I have  a few more  videos  from the event and will be continuing to  upload them to youtube at http://www.tinyurl.com/sapphiresyoutube.com
