Ohio native, TruPoetry is a spoken word artist who discovered her golden voice by listening to the sounds and lyrics of Saul Williams, Black Ice and Apollo legend Lauryn Hill.    TruPoetry has performed at several places in her home town – including the Grog Shop, Case Western Reverse and at local charities.  These days, TruPoetry is planning to use her words to persuade the Apollo audience to make her an  Amateur Night winner.
