One of my biggest inspirations to sing is releasing her much anticipated album. I am grateful that she has the inner strength and confidence to share herself with us once more. Thank you Whitney!

~Surrender your life to the best in you…
~We’re not here to pretty up our personality; to put make-up on ugliness. We’re here to uncover our soul which is inherent in beauty.
~Little things become big when anchored in the eternal. A smile, a pat on the back, etc., … become healers
~So if NOW is always happening, what are we waiting for?
Don’t give up… one day at a time… one foot in front of the other… you’ll get there. Try being like water, non-resistant. It doesn’t push the rock. It finds ways to flow around, over and under the nooks and crannies until it succeeds. Eventually, the rock wears down (nature teaches us). Keep doing until you demonstrate. Who knows how long that will take? I’m learning that the journey is most important, more and more everyday. Do you feel like a success already? That’s what counts… Do your part. Ask for help. I stay prayed up as much as possible, so that I can watch things conspire on behalf of my Good. I love you guys and thanks for being a wonderful contribution to my journey.
All the best to you,
I am featuring 40 Glocc on my song “B-Side”… He brought the fire last night and I’m so happy with the end result. It’s a club banger taking us on a musical journey. Check back for footage from the session! He’s a great talent with great work ethic. A gigantic THANK YOU to 40Glocc for being such a lyrical wordsmith on the project… Great things to come 😉
