Sekou Andrews on His Edge

description

A poetic voice is what you get when a spoken word poet hacks the motivational speaking world - a new, cutting-edge type of speaker who uses inspirational speaking, strategic storytelling, theater, and comedy to help organizations tell their most powerful stories. Imagine harnessing the power of an engaging opening video, an electric closing performance, and an insightful main stage keynote all in one dynamic presentation.

In this video, you truly get a feel for poetic voice, and the “wow-factor” that Sekou has delivered to some of the world’s most successful organizations.

A schoolteacher turned actor, recording artist, two-time national poetry slam champion, entrepreneur, and award-winning poetic voice, Sekou is a multi-talented entertainer with over 2 decades of experience rocking diverse audiences. His work has been featured on ABC World News, MSNBC, HBO, Good Morning America, Showtime, MTV and BET. He has given private performances for such prominent individuals as Oprah Winfrey, Maya Angelou, Quincy Jones, Larry King, Hillary Clinton, Coretta Scott King & family and President Obama. He has also shared the stage with such heavyweights as Stevie Wonder, Jay-Z, Carlos Santana, Kendrick Lamar, Maroon 5, Jill Scott, and the Pasadena Pops Orchestra.

As a recording artist, his album, “Poetic License,” made him the most awarded artist in the nation’s largest independent music organization. In 2019, Sekou made Grammy history by becoming the first contemporary poet in 12 years to receive the Grammy nomination for Best Spoken Word Album with his latest album, “Sekou Andrews and the String Theory.”

Sekou has now returned to the classroom, teaching his rockstar secrets to public speakers through his highly effective Stage Might™ speaker training system, that helps executives, influencers and leaders become more dynamic communicators by applying the techniques of master performers to business stages.
