What to Expect
An audience member can expect to be engaged in a meaningful performance or show by being asked questions to make them feel apart and help them to relate to the poems. Also an audience member (between one and five audience members) can expect to win a copy of my poetry book which displays a large portion of my work. In addition, they can also expect to be emotionally moved by every poem, and challenged to think about the specific topic in the poem more avidly. Finally, an audience member can expect to ask me questions, take pictures, e.t.c. A client should expect a prompt, professional performance to be given, with respect to the time allotted to me. Also a client can expect a unique poem written for their event (per request). Clients can also expect (per request) to have the poetry or speaking relate to Christianity. Finally, a client can expect all work to be memorized by the time of the performance.
I am Natasha Redford, a spoken word artist, debut author, and avid Christ lover, along with a Christian speaker. I'm 21 years old, and I live in the Flint area. I have a love for sharing poetry with people, and my dream is to travel the globe and share my story with as many people as possible. I have had the opportunity to share my spoken word throughout all of Flint, and the entire country of Belize, in Central (link hidden) unique rhyming style has left audiences of all kinds in wonder of my talent. I can write a poem just for your event, and if desired, can make it tie back to Christ. I have written about a wide variety of topics, from body image, to racism, to happiness, to drug addictions. My debut poetry book entitled "The Colors of Life: A collection of poems" (available on Amazon) has 40 poems about life's colorful journey, With topics such such as love, hardships, happiness, life lessons, and spirituality. This book, which has received all 5 star reviews, can relate to all readers in some way. I am currently pursing my bachelor's in English with a minor in French, specializing in education. My goal is to teach in the inner city, and help kids to escape their problems through expressing themselves creatively through writing. I am willing to travel anywhere to share my story and perform at your event
Additional Booking Notes
If the lights are dim, it would be highly appreciated if there were a face light, because it makes it easier for people to see. Also, I do inquire about having my performances taped. If they are, I request that I can have a copy of the performance, and permission to use it later, along with pictures. I do encourage photos and videos from both the audience, and the event hosts.
my set changes depending on where I am performing. If it is an event with a theme, I can incorporate speaking and poetry that aligns with the theme, or I can do either or. If it is a freestyle event, meaning I can perform whatever I'd like, I do poems from my book mainly. These poems incorporate my personal story and involve the main life themes of love, happiness, hardships, spirituality, and life lessons; because they are topics that audiences can relate to and enjoy.
Influences & Inspiration
Some people that have influenced me are Jefferson Bethke, and Hosanna Wong, two amazing spoken word artists. But what really inspires me is the audience. I love to move and captivate and audience and leave a lasting and memorable impact on them through words.
