While many of the artists names being featured tomorrow may be familiar to most, this may be your first time being introduced to Christian spoken word poetry!  Because this style of art is a new addition to the lineup, we figured we would give you some background information on the featured poet for the day!

If you’re unfamiliar with Ezekiel Azonwu, he is just one the many amazing poets from the P4CM (Passion for Christ Movement) camp that you’ve been missing out on!  Most well known for his performances at Rhetoric (the largest spoken word poetry event in Los Angeles) via P4CM, Ezekiel has been a traveling poet via many tours, concert events and conferences for over 7 years.  He has also spent his time along with other poets such as Janette..ikz, Chris Webb and more facilitating poetry workshops to aspiring poets.

 

Ezekiel is known for his theatric and edgy style!  He noticeably gives his all in every poem.  Often touching on topics that are taboo, in one word Ezekiel can be summed up as “unafraid”.  Check out a few samples of his work below:

 

In addition to poetry, Ezekiel also a hip hop artist!

Catch Ezekiel live near your city this fall for the Poets In Autumn Tour along with poets Jackie Hill Perry, Preston PerryJanette..ikz and more!  Most immediately, you can catch him along with the artists listed above long with a few surprises in Dallas, TX on July 9th for a special advanced recording of the coming Poets In Autumn Tour.  Click here for your tickets to that July 9th event!  Don’t wait.  Tickets sell out quickly!  If you miss them in Dallas, keep in mind that the full tour will begin making its rounds across several cities this fall.  Subscribe to our email list to be the first to learn about future dates and locations of the coming fall tour!

Todd Dulaney Releases a New Sound at “Anthems & Glory” Album Release Concert

ArtSoul Radio was able to celebrate with Todd Dulaney for his “Live” and in-person album release concert this weekend. If you missed it, we’ve got you covered! Keep reading for our full review along with a link to the full concert.

Commemorating the release of his new album “Anthems & Glory”, Todd Dulaney and his team provided those present at Freedom Baptist Church in Hillside, IL and for those viewing the event live via YouTube with an immersive experience filled with exactly what the title suggests! As Chicago begins to slowly re-open after being under tight pandemic restrictions, this night was a breath of fresh air that gave many the release they have been looking for!

The album release concert was a full house! Chicago supporters and many others travelled to show up for Todd and to be present for a powerful worship experience.

After a powerful prayer, the “Proverbs 3” singer surprised the audience with a video of him filling the room with gratitude through a heartfelt thank you for the support he’s received throughout the years since releasing his first song. That gratitude immediately turned the night into a time of nostalgia as the band begin playing some of the music the Chicagoland native has now made staples for worship all across the world!

Todd and his team set the tone from start to finish throughout this event. From his entrance during “Your Great Name” he commanded the presence of the spirit with new songs formed straight from the Word of God. With the help of His mentor in the industry Pastor Smokie Norful alongside Todd Galberth, and Pastor David Gilford, the night was a steady ascension into glory.

This album and the event were both reminders of exactly why the worship culture continues to look to DulaneyLand’s pour for sounds that are resounding invitations for God’s presence to fill every space!
