.Tonight's Tuesday Night at Ana Host: Matt Capone

Southeast, DC native, Matt Capone began writing poetry at the young age of 7. Being a natural, he performed in his first open mic at 10 years old. Poetry became life for him 2 years ago. Not only has he performed his poetry here in Washington DC, but also in Philly, New York, and Baltimore.

Featuring: Brea Brea

Brea Brea wrote her first poem on the walls of her mother's womb. Calligraphy that she had no time to recover, as her exit became abrupt. After her arrival, the world made her forget her true purpose. Brea spent most of her life in pursuit for her passion. She tried dance, but ballet moved too slow. She used paint for expression, and her mother as her muse. Each marking left on her mother's abdomen told stories of sacrifice and truth. Brea began to recollect those stories and piece together those words she once wrote to become a modern-day orator. Sharing her stories from stage to stage.

Spotlight artist: Marley
