“I’m not a product of my environment, but a manufacturer of those who’ll change it.” – Poetic Prodigy.


The spoken word is arguably our most dangerous weapon.  In the wrong hands, words can start a war.  In the right hands, words can start a revolution.  David Barnes (@PoeticProdigy07) knows this all too well, which is why he’s devoted his life to speaking a powerful truth with hopes that he’ll ignite the flame that will burn away the cloaks on our minds.


David Barnes has also found a way to embody the Concrete Cakes mission by combining his passion with personal finance.  Alongside Voices In Power, David has been able to create a brand that allows him to tour regularly, performing poetry for hundreds of people at a time.  Additionally, David shops his own poetry workshop series where he combines education with the art of spoken word.  As a professional artist, few are able to marry artistic integrity with financial gain, so that’s why we celebrate those who do.


Without further adieu, presents David Barnes aka Poetic Prodigy. (FYI…keep watching till the end so you don’t miss an amazing performance)
