Purify the Mic

pu-ri-fy [pyoor-uh-fahy], -fied, -fy’ing. –verb (used with object) 1. to make pure; free from anything that debases, pollutes, adulterates, or contaminates. 2. to free from foreign, extraneous, or objectionable elements: to purify a language. 3. to free from guilt or evil. 4. to clear or purge (usually fol. by of or from). 5. to make clean. 6. to become pure

Purify the Mic is a Spoken Music production open to all poets, singers, rappers, comedians and any other creative artists, fellow connoisseurs and enthusiastic listeners who appreciate the arts. Purify the Mic’s setting is very relaxed and down to earth — a place where individuals can feel free to be themselves. While we strongly encourage freedom of speech, out of respect for all of our guests we prohibit profanity. In turn, we follow up the open mic with a featured artist(s) who through creative expression (i.e. poetry, rap, song, drama, etc…) encourage, edify and empower the audience with their compositions concerning the King. No not Elvis. Jesus Christ –the King!
