Attending the Empire Nights open mic  is like being at home.  The crowd is supportive and everyone is happy to be together as one community.  There was a lot of talent that night.  If I had gold medals to give out, everyone who performed would have been wearing one. The ability to be able to grab the mic and speak your mind is a talent in itself; and I see this talent in many of the youth in the community.

If you have seen the movie Set Up, then you have a idea of what the show and setting is like at Empire Nights.  Mad dancing skills to the young artists and to the MC.
