Takesha Meshé Kizart-Thomas
Multi-disciplinary creative performing artist and founder of SWAP’ra North America, Mrs. Takesha Meshé Kizart-Thomas is a vocally and visually stunning force on stage and screen. From leading roles with many storied institutions such as the Metropolitan Opera and Sydney Opera House, to sharing the stage with the likes of Yo-Yo Ma and Wynton Marsalis, to collaborating with Broadway in Chicago and HBO, she also brings her global world view to building community, education, and innovation. This is evidenced by her recent partnerships with Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Dallas and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, as well as her 15+ years of experience as a Master Vocal Technician, Coach, Songwriter, and Arranger who specializes in holistically integrating and freeing the Mind, Body, and Spirit to effectively communicate one’s clarity and purpose. A performer since the age of two, and counting music legends McKinley “Muddy Waters” Morganfield and Tina Turner among her relations, she consistently propels her vision of uniting tradition with innovation in all she creates. In so doing, Mrs. Kizart-Thomas recently launched “The Meshé Legacy” with her husband, Dr. D. Vincent Thomas Jr. and infant daughter, Little Miss Joëlle Meshé. As marriage and family advocates who believe in the immense power of partnership, they are collectively driven by their mission to promote Love, Life, and Legacy initiatives for families and their children.
