GET TO KNOW TY

Ty Scott King is a versatile, award-winning, international artist who has fine-tuned a unique balance between poetry and hip hop. Referred to by many as “the Maya Angelou of this generation,” she has shared the stage with industry greats, awed international audiences, and performed at the United States Pentagon. The featured poetic voice in national radio ads for corporate giants such as McDonald's, Pizza Hut (for which she won the prestigious Silver Mic Award), and Aveeno, Ty has also appeared on major television networks such as BET and TV One, had multiple long-running successes on the Billboard Music Charts, and is a GRAMMY® Award considered artist. Ty’s eclectic list of accomplishments includes ranking among the top U.S. poets at the National Poetry Slam level, hosting both an internationally broadcasted television and radio show, and breaking ground in the legendary, award-winning group, Platinum Souls. Her ability to remind others of their worth and purpose through her words has made her a sought-after artist and speaker at colleges, churches, and corporate events. These days, the once shy Jamaican born, U.S. raised girl who began writing when she was just eight years old and honed in on her talents early while attending a school of the arts is also a bestselling author, accomplished speaker, and licensed minister who is spreading healing, hope, and love through her God-given words.
