Queen Faces- Beautifully Poetic
POETIC FACES IN APRIL – My favorite picture of the “mos-eccentric” Erykah Badu… really love the simplicity in this photo.
- POETIC FACES IN APRIL- Erykah Badu is lovely, not just because of her wonderfully HomemadeVINTAGE&eccentric look, but because she is an exceptional artist with some of the best lyrics I’ve ever heard. Every single album is greatness!
Chaka Khan & Erykah are great!
BEAUTIFULLY POETIC – NNEKA
Nneka is a very hot artist! Her lyrics are expressive and socially relevant. I admire that she is not “contemporary- sounding” and she has a very distinct voice. She can sing, rap, and do poetry- I’m all on board the Nneka train! I love her album cover for SOul Is HEaVy
She’s got a lot of FLAVA!
Nneka is deep.
BEAUTIFULLY POETIC – THE FLOACIST
The amazing voice of NATALIE STEWART
The Floacist- I follow Natalie because she is one of the most successful female recording and performing poets I know of. Her lyrics mean a lot and I really appreciate her level of consciousness. She always looks so comfortable, no matter what look she takes on. Money doesn’t seem to drive her- the art does. Peace to this QUEEN. I dig. (I’ll have to blog about her body art later on- very nice!)
POETIC FACES IN APRIL- These are great photos of Natalie. Have you listened to her CD? It’s really nice.
BEAUTIFULLY POETIC – LIANN LA HAVAS
POETIC FACES IN APRIL- I am lovin’ this chick right now! Her LYRICS ARE awesome as is her voice- Extremely and soothingly POETIC! My favorite pic of her.
BEAUTIFULLY POETIC – the LES NUBIANS will never die!
Have you seen them? I remember going to their concert and being completely amazed by their voices and their movement. I felt like I was in a cyclone of culture! It was such a HIGH. If you can ever catch them in concert, please go. They give a great show.
The Les Nubians have so much style and flava. Amazing looks.
BEAUTIFULLY POETIC FACES
JANET’S POWERFUL VELVET ROPE YEARS& THE DESIGN OF A DECADE
How can we ever forget the wonderful Velvet Rope years of Ms. Jackson? She was at her peak during this time. Her movement and vintage beauty brought the world to tears.
BEAUTIFULLY POETIC – L. HILL
Yesterday and Today
POETIC FACES IN APRIL. The misunderstood Lauryn will forever move me. The MisEducation was awesome! Every word and every song. I have yet to hear an album like this. I even loved loved loved her MTV Unplugged. She was so beautiful and humble. We remember you Queen!
BEAUTIFULLY POETIC – GOAPELE
Goapele’s music continues to be wonderful. I even enjoyed her last album which she added a bit of a “neo-pop” twist to a few of the songs. She is powerfully POETIC.
BEAUTIFULLY POETIC – JANELLE MONAE
POETIC FACES IN APRIL- She is extremely expressive and animated and I love every bit of it! Her lyrics are amazing as well.
I use NATIONAL POETRY MONTH to teach people about poets and writers who have influenced and ARE changing culture. I practice different forms of poetry and study vocabulary words and expressions that will help me in storytelling. I find things that are “poetic” in nature and I try to help young people understand what it means 2BaPoEt. I define poetic as having the power to be persuasive, and get people to support your messages.
These are the FACES of the wonderful women who have influenced me artistically.
It is National Poetry Month and as a verbal artist, I love it!
