About the event


Lem “Saint” Gonsalves first began his poetic journey reciting poems at his father’s church. Since then, he has performed internationally and has released 2 albums, a chapbook, and a DVD documentary entitled “Rise To the Ill-List: Poetic Journey of The Saint”. His style infuses humor, passion, and ideals which inspire as well as entertain. He has opened for hip-hop artists Common, Talib Kweli and Lupe Fiasco as well as gospel sensation Kirk Franklin and has shared the stage with R&B legends Bel Biv Devoe and Faith Evans. He has even performed for the Chief Justice of the Republic of Ghana. He was also selected to be on Season 3 and Season 5 of the NAACP Image Award nominated show “Verses and Flow” as a performance poet. As a competitor, he has represented numerous poetry slam teams over the years at the National Poetry Slam competition and has won many championship titles as a solo performer.

In addition to performing spoken word poetry, he is also an accomplished host in Los Angeles working with television networks such as VH1, FOX and MTV and online network Afterbuzz TV.  In 2020, he created the podcast “Colors of Fatherhood” in which he interviews fathers of color and seeks to highlight their stories of trial and triumph. He can also be seen in commercials appearing in spots for FanDuel and Apple, to name a few.


See you there!
