“I am intellectually impressed by your diversity and ability to impregnate my psyche with thoughts that are healthy for my spirit. Dissipating any doubt, causing me to surrender my love without hesitation, bringing fourth revelations, of circumstantial confusion, now my mental is having multitudes of illusions of us being together forever...” Onney from her book, “Infinite Silhouettes”
While the males of the industry continue to dominate, lesser gratitude is paid to their female counterparts. Along comes Onney, to counter the perception, with her no-nonsense demeanor mixed with her spirited personality. As a member of the celebrated Laws family (Ronnie, Hubert, Eloise and Debra), Onney aka Houston ’s Own Poetic Diva has created a strong following as well, early in her career.
Onney, The Poetic Diva, addresses a wide range of life’s issues that concern us all. She is an insightful hip - hop poetess who uses her incendiary vocal skills to take us into the erotica of love and the morass of social and political issues that concern us all. Her observations are laced with wisdom beyond her years and sautéed in humor that holds the listener or the readers rapt.
After working with Mentor famed poet, play writer and novelist Dr. KG Bell, Onney decided to allow Dr. Bell to hear her energetic poetry. The exuberant style of her performance coupled with her poetic delivery impressed him so much, he immediately called the owner of the biggest and longest running Jazz club in Houston, The Red Cat Jazz Café. After receiving a standing ovation for her performance, she was dubbed, a lyrical cardiologist who spits poetry from the heart.
“Poetry involves the creation of a broader imagination, while targeting the reality of real life circumstances,” she states when asked to describe her own unique style of poetry. The talented thespian is equally praised for her work on the screen as an actor, songwriter, singer and model.
Being the opening act for Ron Isley and Angela Winbush was just the midpoint of her career. The 3500 people in attendance applauded her melodic and polished flows that were interlocked within the grooves of the music, which played in the foreground. “That performance has to be one of the most liberating experiences for me,” she recalls. Onney has performed at venues across the country opening for Little Man, BET's Shawn Harris, BET’s Shang, Michael Blackston, Darrin Henson and many more. She is featured on well known Houston rapper Kiotti’s CD entitled “Almost Famous”. Onney is also perfecting her craft in journalism as the Entertainment Editor and columnist for the “Houston Sun Newspaper”.
As a feature artist and actor, Onney appears in Rent-A-Car (featuring BET’s Shaun Harris and Lil Brough) where she performs her hit single October, and in A Gangland's Love Story (featuring Reagan Gomez, A.J. Lamas, Gary Sturgis and more) where she performs Mr. Incredible. Both films along with several others are undeniably the coup de grace for the Poetess/Songstress Onney who plays herself. Both of these films were picked up by Maverick (Owned by Madonna) She has also shared the stage with The Legendary Shirley Murdock while maintaining the lead female role in the gospel stage play "Heaven Aint Hard To Find" directed by Curtis Von and produced by 3Wise Men Productions. Which now she has been casted for the stage play and movie Lyfe’s Poetic Revenge where she will be playing the role of Bridgett and also herself.
The Houston-bred poet has experienced unbridled success not only on stage, but off stage as an author, and the CEO of her publishing company “Onney Publishing & Performances ©”, which has become a lauded template and formula for upstart and thriving authors looking for success. The author/poet is being hailed for her poignant and powerful book, Infinite Silhouettes. The books romantic, comical, spiritual and political themes bring life to each and every page. Comical and erotic overtones are scattered and embedded in the seams of pages leaving readers breathless.
