About The Show
Apollo Music Café Featuring:
Curated by Dwight Jordan
Every now and then, an artist comes along – an authentic trailblazer who cuts her own path and delivers the raw and the real. Amy León steps up to the microphone and with each anticipated note, fuses music and poetry through powerfully transparent performances that focus on social inequalities and celebrates love, blackness and what it means to be a woman.
Some have deemed her the love child of Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Simone, while others simply call her a child of the Sun. Amy’s soaring vocals, whispers and masterful poetry creates an artistic drama that reflects our political times. At the deepest core of Amy’s music is an organic grace where she leaves just enough room to gather pieces of herself to uplift, inspire and empower. Brace yourselves for this rare, intimate evening of music, songs, spoken word and truth.
