Georgia Me who is known for spoken word throughout the city of Atlanta began her career as a teenager when she was first introduced to the work of Nikki Giovanni when she was given a research project on the poet and activist.
"Nikki Giovanni was the one person I wanted to be like. Her poetry makes you think and I've always said that if I ever had the opportunity to impact crowds as she did, I'd also want my words and poetry to make others think."
Georgia Me is also the creator and executive producer of the cultural celebration, "The Tamika Festival" which is a week long of events that takes place in the city of Atlanta to celebrate the culture and art of the spoken word genre. In addition, the city of Atlanta has given the spoken word artist an official day known as, "Tamika Day" in which she owns the keys to the city she grew up in.
Some of Georgia Me's credits also includes an appearance and performance on former BET Networks show, 'The Mo'Nique Show,' the Broadway production of Def Poetry Jam and she even made her film debut in the number one box office hit, 'Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail.'
Georgia Me will officially kick off the tour with Scott on July 22 in Saratoga, California.
