Testimonials

Kavon served as my legislative fellow from 2007-2008, and during that time, I learned that she is one of the most passionate, hardworking and resilient individuals I know. I believe that whatever Kavon writes or speaks will move an audience because she has lived and overcome a life full of major obstacles. Unlike many, Kavon used those obstacles as opportunities and as a result, has a testimony which I believe will undoubtedly inspire and motivate others.

- Former Member of Congress, Albert Wynn

It was a pleasure and an honor to share the stage with you Kavon. I’m a big fan of your work! Keep spittin the truth, bless up.”

- Former Wizard’s Player/Author/Poet – Etan Thomas

Her performances are Breathe Taking, Thought Provoking, Moving and Heartfelt with a Touch of Compassion. and a great concern for People of the African Diaspora. I know my father would wouldve enjoyed hearing the X factor piece she wrote and dedicated to him.

- /Activist/Author,Moticational Speaker – Ilyasah Shabazz (Malcolm X's daughter)

I listened to your tracks last night. Nicely done! Ursula is widely considered the Queen of spoken word and judging by your work, she needs to watch her back.

- Educator/Activist/Leader – Khari Shabazz

I am proud of you for getting the CD done! Liking the music with the tracks. Your work made me want to assist you… T hats good because I hear a lot of work that doesn’t move me
