“Stunningly good.” – The New York Times
It is truly rare to find an artist like Detroit’s own Invincible. The spitfire wordplay has received acclaim from fans all across the world, while Invincible’s active involvement in progressive social change has taken her music beyond entertainment toward actualizing the change the artist wishes to see. For the last decade Invincible has worked with Detroit Summer, a multi-racial, inter-generational collective in Detroit that has been working to transform communities through youth facilitative leadership, creativity and collective action since 1992. Invincible is also the co-coordinator of the Detroit Future Youth network to support social justice and media-based youth projects throughout the city.
