SPOKEN WORD: With Music, SPOKEN WORD: Poetry
Rebecca "Butterfly" Vaughns is an addict with no intentions to be cured. Poetry is one of her survival antics - her second form of oxygen. She''s been making love to surfaces that are capable of holding ink juices since the age of ten.
Whenever her thoughts tend to run faster than her pen can write, she amazes souls from 1-92 with her poetical freestyling skills. From mid 2002 up until today, she''s done freestyle dedicated poems for visiting full-time poets here in the South Florida area such as Sekou (tha misfit), Helena D. Lewis, Queen Sheba and Langston Fuze and for author and motivational speaker Mr. Les Brown and recently for a baby girl that was born only 2lbs and is now 6 months old as of January 29, 2005.
Her CD A Poet''s Pen was released on October 1, 2002 and is still receiving reviews. Mr. C.J. Overton of the Circle Magazine wrote in the summer 2004 issue, "Vaughns is definitely an artist that gives jazz a soul through spoken word. Real life, its struggles and its accomplishments, are fair game throughout the CD. She has a true gift for words, making them come alive to her listeners. Even if poetry is not "your bag," give a Poet''s Pen a try. Could just hook you, too! The CD is a poetical journey bound to inspire, move, groove and touch all intangible parts. She''s received high compliments for this first spoken word CD project from notables such as Umar Bin Hassan of the legendary The Last Poets, MC Lyte, Shang(poet/comedian), Natalie (Floacist of Floetry) and DJ Papa Keith just to name a few.
Rebecca''s sophomore cd titled More Than Words pays tribute to the art of music and the artists that left their marks on an artform capable of bringing all cultures together. She''s sensual on the track "Mr. Sax" accompanied by saxophonist extraordinaire Melton Mustafa. The poem "Closer Than Close" will make you need a glass of water. There''s something on this cd for every music lover as she covers jazz, gospel, hip-hop, house, r&b and neosoul.
Performing her craft with passion and heart, Rebecca has touched many of people from coffee shops to festivals to colleges and everywhere else in between. She enjoys traveling to share her weaved words. Currently, she''s in the studio recording cd number three titled My Voice, Your Ears. She''s one of poetry''s many voices that you would not want to miss hearing if she''s ever in your town.
