Jazz | Iyeoka

I'm loving this music video for Iyeoka's song entitled "Say Yes". Iyeoka is a Nigerian-American award-winning poet, recording artist and TED fellow. Iyeoka's gift for telling stories is evident in her lyrics. She was featured on Russell Simmon's poetry jam, and was a 2nd place champion in the 2009 Individual World Poetry Slam. To many of her listeners, her smooth musical style invokes the essence of soul artists Amy Winehouse, Lauryn Hill and Nina Simone.
