The 'Source' magazine called her a precocious figure on the spoken word scene,' while the 'Raleigh News & Observer" said she was a "mixture of Chuck D and a Baptist Minister.' This young sister has bought many to tears during dramatic presentations and has stirred crowds into a roaring mass as she rocked one of her 'Cultural Rap' songs. Miss Jessica Alarcón has certainly proven she can hold center stage. Performing since the age of ten, Jessica or Omilani, her stage name has been featured in many programs. Most of her works focuses on social and political themes with emphasis on the African Diaspora. Her love of languages has blossomed into a presentation that now bridges language and cultural boundaries. Mixing Spanish, French, Portuguese, Arabic and Yoruba into her music and poetry has added a unique twist to her show. Jessica feels that this diversity of her work enables her to reach a wider audience. Jessica is especially proud of the reaction of her peers. It is her intention to show case the art not the artist, to let you be impressed by the message not the messenger. Jessica hopes to inspire others to pick up a pen and write.
