Beatz Community Voices is an environment in which your creativity is nurtured. It is a safe place in which people can experience a sense of community while appreciating a wide variety of artistic work. In this podcast we get to explore and understand people's lives through music, poems, and short stories while hearing different types of writing, melodies, genres, and styles. We are always seeking to support new and emerging voices and to give others a platform to express their individuality while showcasing their work.
Do you have something creative that you can share with the Beatz community? Then feel free to let us know about it below.
Hosted by Imani Hudson
Hey Everybody! My name is Imani and I am your host for Beatz Community Podcast. I am a lawyer, artist, mindfulness advocate, writer and “breath of fresh air from tha’ South.”
For as long as I can remember, music, art, and literature have always provided me with comfort and inspiration. As a child, my home was filled with sounds of jazz, r&b, classical, and soul music. I traveled to London, Paris, and Versaille to sing Motown hits with my elementary school choir. I learned how to read music and play the piano and saxophone. I read books and poems to transport me to places unknown. I doodled in the margins of my school notes (during high school, college, and law school) because the tantalizing swirls and patterns helped me focus on the instructions. Creating and appreciating others' creativity has always felt like second nature.
That is why I am so thrilled to build a community of passionate musicians, artists and creatives, and share their voices and work with the world. We create our art because something within us compels us. When we share our art, we have the power to ignite a fire within others and inspire them in unimaginable ways.
I hope you join us on this journey and discover just what you need–whatever that may be–along the way.
