Artist - Educator - Cultural Ambassador
Toni Blackman's mission:
To be a music maker, teacher and healer who uses hip hop to inspire people to go beyond their limitations, to become more articulate, and translate words into action that further personal and professional development and help to create a better world. She is a visionary social innovator whose work has resonated in education, the arts and entertainment, and corporate arena. Toni's Mindfulness Music and Hip Hop Meditation grew out of her contemplative practices, visualization exercises and a commitment to her own emotional well-being. A powerful presenter and performer, Toni has coached and mentored hundreds of artists, social entrepreneurs and creative professionals to greatness.
Toni is available for performances, talks/lectures, workshops, private and small group performance coaching (stage direction and in-studio recording support), film and book narration, voice-over, as an on-air personality, creative consultation and of course to rock mics.
