About Me

Why Do I Perform?

I perform because art is universal, and I think the act of producing art has the possibility to create echoes or reverberations through eternity. It’s nonviolent, spiritual warfare.  Art paints the hearts of millions. I perform to free enslaved souls; to free spirits. I perform to inspire and empower myself & others in order to inspire and empower others and myself; and to get bitches.
