It has been a major success in my life. It was a door opener and I’m humble for the experience it has taught me.
You have to your credits Albums like ‘I Am Somebody’, ‘My Holiday’, & ‘Believer’. What really contributed to the Success of ‘Believer’?
All my albums are personal to me. ‘Believer’ is an album I created for those who doubted themselves and felt like they missed their mark. ‘believer’ is an album that puts emphasis on the person believing in themselves, moreso than anything else. God wants us to be at our best and I believe as long as we have breath in our bodies, we still have a chance to continue working towards our better being.
You recently released the Visuals of ‘Hear Us’. What Birthed the concept?
Amante Lacy wrote this song and it carried such a cry that I wanted to make sure this message carried over successfuly by it being my single for the album.

Who is/are your Role Model(s)?
Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, and Daryl Coley.

I’m planning a few things that I have in the fire. Im working on a live rhythm and worship album, a traditional project, and writing a book.
