Biography

In the summer of 2001 Amanda Diva burst onto the poetry scene as a spoken word emcee who’s style, an energetic blend of and Black history, humor and intensity, strength and intelligence, stood out from the now exploding poetry scene. The honesty of Miss Diva’s work is felt through her combination of a powerful singing voice and a powerful inner voice, which she melds together to create her unique exuberant style of performance. Addressing issues of politics as well as everyday occurrences and headaches that everyone deals with, Amanda Diva puts them in an explosive rhyme format that forces the highest sadiddy to come down to earth, and the most thorough thug to awaken his intellect.
“Diva Deev” has blessed mics from Russell Simmons’ Def Poetry Jam (’02 & ‘05) and Jessie Jackson’s “Rainbow Push” Benefit (2003), to New York City’s world famous NuYorican Poet’s Café (two time Grand-Slam Semi Finalist), the Lyricist Lounge, and more. She has also burned down the stage with her lyrics from the University of Miami to the University of Texas Austin and others. Along with hitting the stages of college campuses across the U.S. as a poet, she has performed with the legendary Last Poets and also served as guest speaker/panelist on hip-hop along side Kurtis Blow and Nikki Giovanni at the illustrious Texas A & M University and frequently speaks and performs for elementary school to high school kids from various residential and urban areas.
