As a mother of two, the whole world changed for her. While she has been blessed with two beautiful children to nurture, along with becoming a mother is a heavy responsibility of just staying at home and limiting her with what she wants to do with her life. Like most mothers and women, she is expected to live her life at home, keeping the whole household in place. But, Aaliyah Lane wanted to do more and be more than expected. She is more than just a mother. Aaliyah wanted to inspire others to be more than what society tells women to be. Just like her, she’s a spoken word poet, model, and songwriter.
Most notably known as Hazel Love, she has been writing and performing spoken word poetry since 2013. It has been seven years since she started, but today, she is finally gaining recognition as a rising spoken word artist to watch in the industry.
Known for her spoken word pieces such as Life, Series of a Hopeless Romantic, and Soul Ties, she captivates audiences and commands attention as her soft-spoken voice ignites throughout her poetry like a roaring lion with passion in every word she speaks.
With her incredible talent in spoken word poetry, she uses her voice to express her views on love, life, and other powerful insights about the world. She writes her own pieces, performs, and even publishes her work online with an excellent production value that is sure to evoke the audience’s emotions.
If you’ve never heard of Hazel, you’ve certainly seen her perform at local charity events, homecoming celebrations, open mic events, and many more. Her notable performances include participating in a poetry event with the 24th Spoken Word Poet in the world Joe Mac, performing at the Fayetteville State University during the Homecoming Week Author Night event in 2019, and performing for a charity event sponsored by Greater Life of Fayetteville, North Carolina.
Besides making her mark in the spoken word poetry space, she’s also a versatile, multi-talented artist and aspiring model defining what a multi-hyphenate woman really is.
Not only does she write and perform poetry, but Hazel is also interested in making music. She believes that both music and art are powerful ways of expressing herself and a means to move people and inspire the world.
Along with making music, she also finds rhythm in being a model, gracing runways, strutting in fashion shows, posing in photoshoots, and campaigns for different designer brands. Because of her passion and grit to achieve anything, this makes her stand out from the rest. Her ambition is to work with different brands and surround herself with other people who enjoy writing, poetry, and music as much as she does. Soon enough, this ambition will become a dream come true for Hazel.
There are many multi-hyphenated women to look up to in the world today, and Aaliyah Lane knows too well what it takes to succeed in multiple roles.
