Michael Lee - “Pass On”

"The theory of six degrees of separation was never meant to see how many people we could find. It was a set of directions for how to find the people we have lost."

Michael Lee performing an inspirational poem celebrating the life of a childhood friend. Michael works with homeless youth in Minneapolis, MN and tours nationally teaching workshops and performing. He was awarded Best Poet at CUPSI 2011 and received the Verve grant the same year. He is currently traveling internationally and researching his Scandinavian heritage for a forthcoming project.
