Help spread God's word thru Music!
To use the testimony of one, to unite and restore people through faith in Christ.
Music has always been my calling. I started making music in the 90's with dreams of money, fame, & women, but not to glorify Christ.
I went on to accomplish many of my childhood dreams. After releasing my second album, "Sellout", I took home 5 Madison Hip-Hop Awards in 2013, one of the biggest years of my career. It left me feeling just like that, a sellout to my Christian upbringing. After accomplishing so much, I couldn't understand why I felt so empty and unfulfilled.
Circumstances started compounding. Hardships at home during Thanksgiving, a failing relationship, and a decades-long sex addiction, were destroying my life. The mental, spiritual, and emotional emptiness finally brought me to my knees in my room saying, "I can't do this anymore." I then surrendered my life to Christ, at my lowest point, realizing I couldn't go on seeking fulfillment from everything else but Him.
This was a turning point in my life and career. After seeking God through spiritual guidance & counsel, renewing my faith, and entering a faith-based 12 step recovery program for my addiction, a "New Me" was born, as well as a new direction for my music. I started work on my third studio album, "Trinity." The lead single, "New Me", carries the rest of the album which glorifies God.
To let people know that Jesus Christ loves them despite their brokenness. To glorify Him and spread his message with my music & videos.
The initial reception to the song inspired me to start promoting it with targeted ads through Facebook and Youtube in January 2017. Using $100 to market in my "New Me" music video, it has now reached over 46,000 people and garnered 23,000+ views. Sharing my story through this song has produced astounding feedback via comments, likes, shares, and personal messages. This marks the best and most organic response I've received from any of my songs throughout my 20-year career, which is why I'm asking for you to support me in my $4,000 funding goal.
-Use the goal of $4,000 to raise awareness by 4,000% or 40x my original investment.
-Anticipating reach of 2 million people with my message.
Thank you all for your support, and God bless! If you can’t invest money, even a simple share of the video or prayer is helpful!!!

Thanks again, everyone, for your generous donations towards furthering God's word and kingdom! Saying a prayer for each and every one of you.
With that said: I decided to wind down my promotional campaign for this particular song/video, "New Me". It's been running for 3.5 months (Since Jan 1, 2017.) Although it's a great video and is getting great responses, one thing I noticed with advertising on Facebook is that: You can only advertise the same thing over and over before it loses its luster. With THAT said, I JUST released a new video for my new single "Best Friend". I still have a few hundred dollars left over from this "New Me" campaign...so I'm going to roll over some of the funds into promoting this new video, "Best Friend" (If you guys would like to check it out, you may at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvT-FIo_edo Any likes, comments, shares, and prayers still help!!!!)
I feel hitting people with a variety of different songs and videos would be a more effective way of reaching more people than putting all my eggs in one basket (video.) Different people have different tastes and what one person likes, the next may not.
As far as my full album, I set a release date for "Trinity", which contains these songs. The release date has been set for Fri May 19, 2017. Those who donated $10+ will receive their digital downloads and hard copies before the release date as promised. So, thank you guys once again for your generous donations. ALSO...I JUST finished writing the Thank You's for my album and I included every single one of your name's in it that donated to this campaign..no matter the amount :)
As far as an official release party...I am still working on securing a venue. Originally, I was looking to host the party on the actual release date of May 19...but because of scheduling conflicts...it will have to be pushed back. Looking at possibly June 2 for the release party..but I'll keep you guys updated on that.
With that said, I think that's it as far as an update for now. Just wanted to keep you all in the loop and thank you all again from the bottom of my heart!!!
