"Poetry is truth in its Sunday clothes." ― Joseph Roux
Poetry is the language of the soul. I use my 10 years of experience to set, change or create an atmosphere for audiences to be encouraged and inspired. I seek to wield my skill and passion to make sure that not only the audience time at the event is powerful and memorable, But also I want to ensure honest conversation and reflection that will last the entire ride home as well. I am also the author of Can I Be Honest, my first book of poetry.
I have worked with Propaganda, Detrick Haddon, Ezekiel, Chris Webb, Jackie Hill Perry, Preston Perry, Professor Dr. Cornel West, Thisl, Derek Minor, Rudy Fransisco & Jimmy Needham.

What to Expect
My name is Tatyana Leonard and I am a Director for Fellowship of Christian Athletes of Los Angeles. Alexander James is an amazing minister of the Word of God. God has gifted him with a creative mind to bring light and clarity to the truth of the Bible. Alexander James is captivating and has the ability to invite people from all stages of life, believers and non-believers to not only listen to his words but put them into action. What I appreciate most about Alexander’s Ministry is his ability to invite others into the presence of God. This is huge to me because many other great speakers and artist of words tend to leave others in personal worship; while Alexander invites you to join him in experiencing the great love and passion he has for God.
Fellowship of Christian Athletes
Alexander James is simply put, AMAZING! I have heard and sat to listen to many poets and spoken word artist, and NEVER has my mind, intellect, heart or soul been impacted in the manner in which he did. Outside of being a great Poet, his ministry was definitely exemplified, with enthusiasm, passion, and understanding. I would suggest if you have yet to hear him in action, that you quickly find yourself booking him for your next event and/or program. It was an honor and a privilege being able to have my young people get a better understanding, of Jesus Christ himself, through poetry, "Blood Donor" Simply AMAZING.
