Verses & Flow Recap and Carl Thomas Interview

This past Thursday (Jan 24th) I attended the swanky Verses & Flow event in Chicago. Verses & Flow are a series of events (sponsored by Lexus) that showcases musical and spoken word talent.  Past performers have included Luke James, Elle Varner and Musiq.

On this night at the modern and spacious Chicago Illuminating Company venue we snacked on heavy appetizers, enjoyed cocktails from an open bar and checked out the new Lexus GS parked inside.  Spoken word artists Sonya Renee and Rudy Francisco entertained the crowd with their moving and soulful poetry. 

R&B singer and Chicago area native, Carl Thomas took the stage at the end accompanied by a live band. His performance was flawless and had us all singing along to his classic hits, “I Wish”, “I’m Emotional” and my favorite “Summer Rain”!
