“Ebo gave an excellent performance, and we greatly appreciate how willing you all and Ebo were to be flexible with us. Those who attended really enjoyed Ebo’s work. They have wonderful energy and were great at engaging our audience, and I know I was struck by how well Ebo was able to still convey Spoken Word and its emotive nature in the virtual setting!”
