Brandon Leake, winner of AGT 2020, visited Ellen yesterday. Interesting conversation.
Honoring Breonna Taylor … you will see the connection.
Brandon Leake is an award-winning spoken word poet, artistic educator and motivational speaker from Stockton, California.
Brandon has performed in locations such as New Zealand, Mexico, Canada and 36 U.S. states for his Dark Side Tour, which promotes his first-ever published poetry chapbook and his album Deficiencies: A Tale From My Dark Side, which is rooted in transparency and healing.
Brandon is also the founder and CEO of Called to Move, an organization that aids youth in self-actualizing and personally developing through the art of poetry. This pursuit led to Brandon leading workshops around the world with several curricula he developed himself.
Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old black woman, was fatally shot in her Louisville, Kentucky apartment on March 13, 2020, when a search warrant was executed by white officers Jonathan Mattingly, Brett Hankison, and Myles Cosgrove of the Louisville Metro Police Department.

Newly crowned “America’s Got Talent” winner Brandon Leake chatted with Ellen about what winning the $1-million prize means to him, how he first got started in spoken word, and how writing personal pieces has become cathartic and a way of healing for him.
Then, Brandon took the stage to debut a moving poem dedicated to Breonna Taylor.
