"TheSoulfulPoet isn’t your average Spoken Word Artist. Having gone through the dog days of adapting to life in Canada as a 1st generation Immigrant, or dealing with low self-esteem, depression, and bullying throughout his schooling, or even leaving university to pursue his passion, Ali Al Hussaini, “TheSoulfulPoet”, is an artist that can be a voice for everyone. No matter what faith, ethnicity, age, race or gender, TheSoulfulPoet serves as a voice for the voiceless in more ways than one. A speaker, poet, workshop instructor, and listener are just a few of the many things TheSoulfulPoet prides himself in providing for people of all ages." - EMPWR Magazine's Ally Salama

"This dude is versatile. He can sing. He can give you some bars, and as his name says, he has a lot of soul in his bars and music."
