With her earlier influences being Nikki Giovanni and the world renowned Maya Angelou, Jamillah “Lady J” Warner has definitely found her own voice and it’s unapologetically relentless.
She’s the author and recording artist of Hot Prayers Flow Like Fire – poetry, story, spoken word – soundtrack for survival.
Her words speak to an unparalleled strength that she believes is in each of us — even if you have not discovered it yet.
It’s almost like she’s putting a melody together…Lady J draws you in…makes you want to listen…very inspirational.” — Charli Sims
Hot Prayers is like someone sounded an alarm to wake up the sleeping giant, fighter and survivor in all of us. Through her poetry she speaks to the heart and addresses hard truths — and the fact that we all face pain at some point in life.
You can find Lady J in a coffee shop somewhere drinking tea and trying to find the best way to put these words together in order to let you know that you can make it after all.
Why Hot Prayers?
Because of domestic violence & a divorce, the middle of the night used to be the loneliest time for me. I’d end up online looking for something to connect with & I never found what I thought I needed.
So Hot Prayers is the spoken word, motivational videos, inspirational poems & stories that I craved back then, just in case it’s needed now.”
Known for live performances in the Atlanta area and her local community, Warner also has several short films and has been heard on the popular Atlanta radio station V-103 and Uptown Comedy Club.
She’s an award winning poet, Atlanta Def Poet and domestic violence survivor.
