To take the lessons I have learned and enhance the kingdom of God with dance through live shows and visuals. I have learned the good and bad with the entertainment industry. I have learned how to enhance, movement, and performance. I have seen both sides of the church and the industry. I know what both sides are missing and I believe I can be the missing link to create balance. There are so many dancers who want to give to God, but financially it is not easy, I want to provide that space.
These visuals will consist of art and movement for people who are struggling with losses through death, finances, drugs, whatever their conviction is and how to spiritually move through by just calling on God.
I'd like to think of it as the Alvin Ailey of church (not really calling it that though lol).
Over the past year I have worked with J. Lo, Pre-Grammy's, SNL, Pharell, VanJess, and choreographed for Beyonce. After all was said and done, I felt I had a higher calling. Recently I performed at the Stellar Awards with The WallsGroup, and I heard God so clearly say, "GO INTO MINISTRY". I have been
running from it for so long and now it is time to stop!
I birthnamed my ministry Eden. After I listened to Donald Lawrence's "Back to Eden", I realized that as a country and the body of Christ; we need to get back to the beginning.
Who This Will Benefit:
Eden will be geared toward the church by bringing dance to the forefront as another form of deliverance. So many people, in and out of the church, are hurting and dance is a great expression of worship to bring healing. Eden will provide workshops on how to expand movement, creativity in the spiritual and physical. With the growth of the company we will expand to school systems educating students on what dance is and how it should feel when it is positively illuminated.
Gospel Artist will also benefit through our non profit sector. We will provide dancers for artists, that are operating on a shoe string budget, with quality dancers who love to serve God. The company will raise money to help pay dancers what they should be paid and give the artist what the show God deserves. Eden will also cover the cost for creative direction so that God can be glorified with quality shows to impact the world.

Most of you have supported me in countless ways through the years and I can't thank you enough! Anyway, you can help I will forever be grateful. Even if it is connecting me with churches who can help get my vision recognized or simply donating point of contacts for insight; it is most appreciated. My company will thrive from your help and support. The church and the young generation needs YOUR help. Working various jobs confirmed just how much I need to evolve what I see, so I'm deligently seeking your help to reach my objective. It's time to give my gift back to God. So I am begging you to help me reach my goal. I will be sending monthly updates with how the company is growing. You will also be apart of the helping pic the logo. I would like for YOU to have a hand in this process as well. This company will take at minimum, 6 months to build; I will have a company release for my birthday in October. I am asking a minimum of 20 dollars, if you can exceed by all means I am thankful. If you can only give less than 20 dollars, I am still thankful. The Bible speaks about giving no matter how big, and he will magnify the gift to what he intends . I am excited to embark on this journey and see what God has for me.
