"Power of SHE" Poetry Slam
McGlohon Theater @ Spirit Square
Tessica Williams, known to the world as "Lady Tess a.k.a TESStimony, was born in Mobile, Al.
She embraced her plus size figure and poetic potential at an early age. She realized she had a very unique talent of articulating and maneuvering words that appealed to both the soul and nature of an entire melting pot.
She utilizes her unique ability to seduce words that not only captivate audiences across the nation, but also to appeal to every aspect of both life and living. She has taken her talent across southern borders that include Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia, Florida and many other states, by featuring and hosting open mics and events and several youth workshops in schools and youth centers.
She has won numerous poetry slams and competitions, including the Tyler Perry "For Colored Girls" poetry slam and the Southern Fried Poetry Slam indie competition in 2012. With her sensual style and "in your face" vivacious lyrics, she has become a familiar voice that stands out in a diverse world of poetic sound. She is currently embarking on several collaborations and solo projects.
She is spiritually connected & bound to the Creator and embraces all of this as food for the soul and expresses that through her works. Her experience is her way of feeding the poetic spirit while capturing the true essence of life and its aura. In what little free time she has for herself, she enjoys writing, reading, and personal meditation. Her music of choice is jazz and the sounds of the 60s and 70s. She enjoys traveling and places strong values in family. Her lyrical gifts, along with many other multiple talents, give her alter ego "Mistress of Thickness" a flair and pressence that makes any super hero jealous.
Lady Tess is a breath of fresh air, accompanied by the 1st note of winter, and the fresh scent of honeysuckle that ushers us into the spring of spoken word. She soothes the mind, body, and spirit with her words and is an assortment of lyrical taste buds that cure any poetic ailment.
