Spoken World Poetry WordzSpeaks
I would like to start this off by saying my my my mymymy my the show was so good and right! I was so happy that I had the opportunity to come and indulge in this literary feast. The environment was amazing! It was my first time entering the establishment namedCheerz Sports Grill. If you are the home town hero type of person with your sports team then you are definitely going to feel at home entering into this classy establishment. Interior and exterior is very well keep and I'm a little upset at myself for just finding out about Cheerz Sports Grill at 7303 Georgia Avenue Washington, DC 20012.
MJG Speaks what a wonderful host along with Twist N Wordz (WordzSpeaks) put together a wonderful lineup of talent that excited and aroused my entire being. Spiritually, Mentally and Physically my cravings had ceased by the end of the night and I felt whole (one with the universe). The talented individuals that got up to speak, spoke to me directly. I can't remember everyone's name but just to name a few Still Ryzen, Sheabutterfly Jamison, Girl Genius, Soultoucha Da Poet, Melinda Moses, Mr Speaker, Ill MC and Kim Miller all have me excited to come back for more.
I have a huge feeling of accomplishment by being able to to have this fate on getting these words out into our community. I know it's going to touch somebody and encourage somebody and spark the fire in some minds and hearts to get up, get out and get going with life.
