Micheal here, reporting live and out loud from the south bank centre on the fantastic events of poetry international!!
First of all, i would just like to thank everyone that participated over the past days at the south bank all the singers,writers,poets,bloggers and most of all the public, thank you all for the support, energy and views.
Okay now it’s down to business!!
The first night of poetry international was a vibrant well collaborated start to a celebration of different cultures.
the energy and excitement was electric you could feel volts bounce through your body as Reem Kelani worked the stage with her powerful voice projecting her thoughts and songs aloud to the audience the Palestinian singer engaged and included the crowd with an uproar of cultural difference the wild clapping and stomping was enough to set a weary heart ablaze, she danced she jumped about walked through the audience what more could you ask for, really a woman so strong and passionate about what she can do deserves a place in the hall of fame.
Reem Kelani thank you for a spectacular evening!
