The performances from the UBCO Battle on the Hill are truly remarkable. The Okanagan has some seriously passionate poets and writers, now finding larger platforms with which to express themselves.
Our winner that evening was Jada Larkin.
His deep and passionate performance touched the audience profoundly and was evident with tears in peoples eyes and echoing of snaps throughout the crowd. Jada had an ability to take the audience with him on a journey, to feel and experience what it means to be faced with racism and prejudice throughout history and in today's world. His thought provoking performance left the audience speechless. We look forward to seeing Jada up on stage again, he was amazing.
