    Pass On by Michael Lee is

    so incredible... It's really helped me through some difficult losses, and still sends chills down my spine every time I hear it, even though I've heard it countless times. I highly recommend it for anyone who likes spoken word.

    Spoken Word is such a beautiful art form

    and I believe that anyone can be a part of it and create a piece of work. I've been actively participating in local slams and plan to perform at local talent shows this year. I'm so excited and proud to be doing what I love while stepping outside the box and my comfort zone.
