‘AGT’ Winner Brandon Leake Releases New Poetry Album ‘Family Affair’
America’s Got Talent Season 15 winner and spoken word poet Brandon Leake recently released his latest poetry album Family Affair. The 1-hour special features 8 original spoken word poems written and performed by Leake himself.
The enthusiastic and motivational poet is back with the release of his latest album Family Affair. Using his unique blend of humor and depth, Leake connects his personal experiences to universal themes of community, loss, love, and hope.
Brandon Leake’s Motivation Behind Family Affair
Leake is the 1st and only spoken word poet that got on AGT and got Howie Mandel‘s Golden Buzzer. Ever since winning the show, he became an award-winning spoken word poet, artistic educator, and motivational speaker. He has performed in 36 U.S. states for his Dark Side Tour, which promotes his first-ever published poetry book. Leake also promoted his album Deficiencies: A Tale From My Dark Side, which is rooted in transparency and healing.
Aside from his accomplishments, Leake is the founder and CEO of the organization Called to Move. The organization focuses on aiding youth in self-actualizing and personally developing through the art of poetry.
Family Affair is Now Available for Free Streaming
Having watched the various acts of Leake myself, I can say for a certain that Family Affair is a memorable performance from the poet. If you missed it, this spoken word artist’s special originally appeared on the CW Network earlier this year. The channel described the special as “innovative and groundbreaking.”
Through the album, we get to meet the people who inspired his poetry. Including his mom, his uncle, his grandmother, his wife, Anna, and his two young children, among others.
Viewers that want to get an intimate look at Brandon’s life in Stockton, California can tune in to The CW Television Network. For a more detailed step-by-step on how to stream his album, check out Leake’s social media.
