    • POET: Maya Angelou (8/31/2009 12:34:00 PM)

      To - Claudi Roo - Look at ALL the facts first....

      In the fall of 1995, the poet Maya Angelou did a reading of her work to an overflowing house at the University of California at Berkeley. Any Angelou reading is a very special thing - few could hope to capture the essence, inflection, joy, sadness, loss and love in her words as well as she does.

      Later that same fall, Ben Harper closed his show at Los Angeles' House of Blues with an a capellaversion of Angelou's poem 'And Still I Rise, ' to which he wrote a melody and recorded for his first album,1994's Welcome To The Cruel World. Angelou's words are no less stirring in Harper's gospel-influenced tune.
