CarnessaThePoetess has always gone against the grain of her traditional upbringing and developed a love for music in various genres, such as Hip-Hop, Pop, Rock, R&B. Although she wasn't confident in her talents and sometimes shied away, she found writing music to be liberating and therapeutic.
She uses her gift of Poetry as a platform to help those who are in need, inspire youth, and bring about change in her Community. BlessTheMic poetry and performance workshop is a poetry centered enrichment program that allows Youth to have a creative outlet and allow them to positively express themselves through the art of poetry and performance.
In 2016 she released her original Poetry Bookmarks and her first album “My Story, My Song” which is composed of poetry, rap and singing. In 2016 she also created "Bless The Mic" Open Mic show in Michigan City and South Bend to give Artists a platform to showcase their talents and enjoy clean, fun entertainment. Through her God-given talents, CarnessaThePoetess strives to empower people to reach their potential and destiny!
