PHENOMENAL: The late Maya Angelou
A SOUTH London club will pay tribute to the late Maya Angelou with an evening of spoken word and song later this month.
Jazzmo'thology JAMMIN' at Club 414 in Brixton will honour the acclaimed poet who passed away in May, aged 86.
Spoken word artist Lisa LoRe will accompany the HKB FiNN Ensemble to perform some of Angelou's work along with her own original compositions to keep the light burning in recognition of the iconic figure.
The accomplished writer touched many souls with her literature, poetry, her voice and her wisdom.
A woman of many talents, Angelou was known for her civil rights work and was also a singer and dancer.
She was affectionately called 'Dr Angelou' even though she had never been to university, but did go on to become a professor.
The death of the poetry legend triggered an outpouring of tributes to honour the “phenomenal woman”.
US President Obama described Angelou as "one of the brightest lights of our time" and media mogul, Oprah said Angelou "is the greatest woman I have ever known. She was my anchor.”
