All things about music and singing!
Letters From The Ghetto: We had such a great time working on a recording for a new musical created and produced by Gloria Brewster. It’s the story of her life growing up in the ghetto and how she persevered through her trials, tribulations, and triumphs. The music is so incredible! I wish her all the best with the show! 😍

It was truly an amazing night at Silvana on June 3rd. The audience was on fire and very welcoming. I won them over and it was such a sense of accomplishment since most of them didn't know me. There was a gentleman who said that what I do in terms of my music and touching people is very essential to helping people through these troubling times. He said music heals. I thank God for the power of music!
The show at the Countee Cullen Library in Harlem was truly amazing. Everyone said they enjoyed the show, and they were singing along and dancing in the aisle by the end of the show!

It was a great day! #concert #counteecullen #nypl #Juneteenth #blackhistorymonth #AfricanAmericanMusicAppreciationMonth
