Updates July 2014!

Hello folks! 

It's been more than a month since my last post, actually about 2 months.

I'll give you a few updates on what I have going on.  For starters, I not long ago celebrated another year of living (yay me! I'm 24), I'm steadily working on finalizations for my project, and my ministry schedule is picking up.  I was just speaking to some folks yesterday who asked me when I'd be releasing The Mixstory: Tales of Love.  While I have not solidified the specific date, I will be releasing this fall!  Seriously!...I have mastering and graphics that will be completed this August.  So get excited and look up ^ for the link to download Heartache.

Do y'all know I've been working on this project since October of 2012? Two years y'all!  Sooo I am very ready to release.  I've been pregnant for a long time lol...And if you haven't heard me speak on it much, this project is essentially a starting ground.  So it's almost like a musical sample of big and beautiful things I desire to do in the future.  I've spent a good bit of time writing and praying about the songs, so I am confident it will positively impact!

I have been hopin' and a prayin' for support, but I know God keeps telling me not to stress or worry about that.  He's called me to it so I just need to do it!  The people will support.  The message of the music will be delivered.   And my heart songs won't fall on deaf ears.  (Encouraging myself in God!)

Where am I singing this August?

I'll be singing in Scottdale, GA on August 9th for their annual youth explosion.  The theme is "Breaking Tradition."  I'm excited about hanging with you guys for the day!

My church back home, Abundant Life Worship Center (ALWC), will be celebrating 14 years of ministry!  I am excited to return to minister with them in song.  Plus, I literally only go back to ALWC about once or twice a year.  Pastors Hardie and Evett have poured a lot into me since I was a teen, so I am very grateful for the opportunity.  I'll be singing some of my original material too!!  If you're in Augusta, consider coming.  Tickets are $35 for the banquet.  There is of course not a fee for Sunday's anniversary service, but you can always give an offering.

...I may update this post should other events be added to my schedule.  Or you can simply go to my Facebook fan page for updates,!  And I'll be at Praise in the Park August 2nd.  Not to perform but to just go and enjoy the gospel music and hopefully say my hellos to folks from Radio One Atlanta (where I interned in college).  If you'll be praisin' out there, let me know!  I love talking to folks.

Where was I this July?
Aside from worshiping with my church family at the Tab,  Some of my brothers in Christ, the REBELS of Homesick, hosted an event on the 19th-P.U.S.H, Praise Until Something Happens in Atlanta.  Half the proceeds were to benefit the Kingdom Alliance Orphanage.  We had a great time in praise and worship!

Okay, that's it for updates!

If you would like me to join you for a special event, please go to my booking link and fill out the form.  I'll be reaching out to different ministries and organizations this fall to promote The Mixstory release.

Before you go, I do have a scripture focus I'd like to share with you!

For the past few weeks I've been listening to Uncle Reece,  He has a song called Have Your Heart that drew me to this passage of scripture about Cain in the Bible.  

"When they grew up, Abel became a shepherd, while Cain cultivated the ground. When it was time for the harvest, Cain presented some of his crops as a gift to the Lord. Abel also brought a gift—the best portions of the firstborn lambs from his flock. The Lord accepted Abel and his gift, but he did not accept Cain and his gift. This made Cain very angry, and he looked dejected. “Why are you so angry?” the Lord asked Cain. “Why do you look so dejected? You will be accepted if you do what is right. But if you refuse to do what is right, then watch out! Sin is crouching at the door, eager to control you. But you must subdue it and be its master.” -Genesis 4:3-7 NLT

Here's the link to the song if you're on a mobile device,

As an ambassador for Christ, this served as a reminder to me that if my actions in ministry don't flow from my heart for God and genuine love for His people, it really doesn't matter.  Questions to ask yourself:  Why do I do what I do?  Who is it for?

...Perhaps that will resonate with you today!  Love y'all so so much!  Embrace your journey!
