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.
