Columbus Georgia performance poet gains national fame (Story by Mark Rice)

======[Begin_Quoted_Text]===== ====

"Columbus Georgia performance poet gains national fame... Chiara Richardson feels she was born to be known for her performance poetry - "God makes me a message that he wants to send to people," she said, "and I'm just a vessel. The nation will see and hear Richardson, a Columbus native and 1999 Shaw High School graduate, deliver one of those messages when she appears this fall on an episode of "Verses and Flow" on TV One. Richardson is among the 24 poets selected for the show's fourth season [...] "Chiara is very to-the-point in her approach to writing... There is no fluff, just a well-constructed story. She is definitely a product of Southern hip-hop. Audiences can certainly hear and enjoy the influences of great rap ensembles like Goodie Mob and Outkast in her work. She is truly a lyricist that knows where she is from and doesn't mind offering up some Southern hospitality on the mic."

"Verses and Flow" is a 30-minute variety show, not a contest. Richardson's episode was filmed in front of a live audience at Siren Studios on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. She said she will be in one of this season's eight episodes, starting this fall, but she doesn't know when it will air.
