Our latest Semi-Finalist Spotlight is on Kimbit!
Kimbit (sometimes known as King Kimbit, or just Kim…) first appeared on a CapSlam stage a few years ago and has become a fixture in the wider Ottawa spoken word community.
Her success in slam reached its apex (so far) last season when she won a position on the Ottawa Youth Poetry Slam team and became the 2012 Urban Legends Champion! Out of 12 combined champions (from Capital Slam, Urban Legends and OYPS), Kimbit is only the second woman ever to “wear the crown” in Ottawa.
Kimbit led the U.L. to a strong showing at CFSW last year and now she is going to try for the CapSlam team!
Kimbit has a number of videos on Youtube that show her singing skills.
And here she is Capital Slamming!
