Rhonda Welsh

Rhonda's soulful delivery and thought-provoking topics are always sure to inspire and entertain audiences. A regular on the arts and culture scene, she is equally comfortable in front of small and large audiences.

Deeply influenced by Langston Hughes, Phoebe Snow, and Gil Scott-Heron, she approaches poetry the way musicians approach music. "My poetry is meant to be heard. I always think about the rhythm and the flow of the words. That is as important to me as the message," she says.
