*HIP HOP EMCEE
This is an on-line event on the Pikes Peak Library District website! Colorado Springs Libraries are the Most Fun!
Since the onset of COVID-19 Mr Kneel has gone virtual! He has entertained and tutored kids across Hawai'i and also on the mainland in Colorado, Missouri and Texas.
Mr Kneel's newest show:
Tickle Your Imagination!
Offers a thrill-ride into the world of science-fiction and creative ways of thinking.
Mr Kneel is Neil McIntyre, an award winning Hip Hop musician and educator, with over twenty years experience on stage and in the classroom. Neil works effectively with a wide age range of kids, from toddlers to college students! He is a former inner-city teacher who went on to perform for a much larger audience in 43 of the United States and 6 provinces abroad! Mr Kneel has inspired tens of thousands of kids with his uplifting message of character and self-respect.
With Beatbox and vocal percussion, Mr Kneel can make magic and emotion. With words he can create and improvise well enough to be invited to perform at the American Jazz Museum!
Mr Kneel has been fortunate enough to perform at over 600 schools and colleges and 100 public library branches! Today he lives on the Big Island of Hawai'i in Captain Cook, records with his life-long musical heroes and leads a very charmed life.
Mr Kneel is so pleased to announce that he has been named an official cultural outreach program of the University of Hawai'i at Manoa! Mr Kneel's Hip Hop for Families is now part of the SCEP roster that provides funding for programs in schools, libraries, community centers, retirement communities and even prisons, on six of the Hawaiian islands!!
The Statewide Cultural Extension Program (SCEP) is a production of the University of Hawai'i at Manoa Outreach College with funding provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, Hawai'i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, the University of Hawai'i at Manoa and community organizations throughout the state of Hawai'i!
