Jamillah’s poetry really speaks to the realities and challenges of balancing womanhood, motherhood, and professional pursuits, among other everyday happenings. The richness in her wording and the cadence in her delivery transcends artistic boundaries, putting the listener into a state of tranquility, uplifting the soul and mind, and bringing to the forefront the joys of striving toward and living our best lives.
I cannot wait for her to release more of her beautiful work!
Upon experiencing Jamillah’s performance as a spoken word artist, I was mesmerized, awakened, and inspired. More often then not, today’s world is limited when it comes to wholesome, faith-based, Christian expressive artist. Jamillah is a new, emerging artist with a fresh perspective on discovering our “greatest selves” by facing our demons, fears, and anxieties.
Her love for the Word of God, the things of God, and the impact the Word of God has on one’s heart and soul is apparent through her artistry.
All I can say is OMG. You truly blessed me Jay. I can truly say that God moved you into your destiny. I was so proud to see the transition you made from being a minister of dance to a minister of Spoken Word. I felt the passion & pain that you shared with your poem. No matter what goes on in life, God does not put the worry of fear in us.
However I must say that I fear God.
Not in a bad way, but when I think about the fear of God I mean that I have the deepest respect, admiration and high honor for God. I look up to him, I adore Him. Your poem made me look at the fear of God in a different light, it made me think about how I truly feel. I want to be the disciple he wants me to be. “Fear knot”. I will not be afraid to defend my faith and share it with others. I truly admire how you allowed God to use you through your writing.
You’re an inspiration and a Phenomenal women! Thank you for sharing the gift God gave you!
Jamillah is a powerful spoken word artist! I have had the pleasure of her performing at 2 of my Choose Joy Now Network events. Each time she had the audience on the edge of their seats wanting more. After each event several women shared with me personally, how her poems moved them or how they could hire her for their event. Jamillah is definitely the next poet on the rise!!
I’m looking forward to seeing her next performance!
I loved your spoken word on Saturday and the opportunity to meet you – excellent job and you have a tremendous gift!
When I hear Jamillah speak, I witness power and emotion. I am touched by her words in a primal place of knowing that I am witnessing truth. The stories are personal yet common to all. She tells her truth with such glowing color and imagination that it gives the listener permission to re-experience life’s difficult moments with honesty.
