Tell us about yourself and your music
I love music, it’s universal, natural, the perfect media for me to sing the gospel using stripture and testimony put into harmony to sing to God. I’m a southern based song writer from Wadesboro nc.
I’ve been singing since I talked. God’s Love cd gets to the point because people today are faced with challenges everyday and need to be reminded that God Love covers us even when we do know it. Writing lyrics to connect with people that encourages them to connect with God.
