Summer 2015 Updates

Wow!  2015 almost feels like it's flying by.  It's definitely been a good year though!  And now it's time to update you on my latest happenings.  Since I haven't done an update on my site since February, we will start with present month, August 2015, and go back in time to March 2015.  If you've kept up with me on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter then chances are you are aware of most, if not all, of my musical happenings!

August 2015

I am currently on vocal rest.  Now this isn't a strict "do not talk or sing whatsoever" vocal rest. Communication is a huge piece in my daily job responsibilities so I don't have the flexibility to be silent 24/7.  But it has meant that I am not singing on our worship team at The Tab along with declining other events that I've been requested for as a soloist.  When I sing for longer time frames or have to project with great volume, my voice becomes very hoarse.  This week alone, I've felt like I've had a scratchy voice all week.  My lower range is pretty strong but my higher range is lacking.

Many people have been praying for me.  And I so so appreciate it!  I am scheduled to return to an ENT doctor for a follow-up appointment in September so I will keep you all posted via social media.  This has been tougher on me than I imagined.  I thought my voice would be fully restored by now, but through it all God has been faithful.  The Mixstory has been well received by you and I have continued to keep my commitments as you will see...

July 2015 Recap
A few of my friends came out to the Red Light Café
to catch Rissi Palmer's show!  She is fantastic!
And so was her guitarist Charles!

In May I told myself I would not take on any new performances, worship events, etc. for the sake of helping my voice get back in shape.  So I instead took time to catch two singer/songwriters, whose music I love, perform here in Atlanta.  

My sister Katrina and I waiting for doors to open at Vinyl
 for the Emily King concert! We had a BLAST!

I was introduced to Rissi Palmer's music about 2 years ago through a friend who knows I love country and soul music.  And Emily King is an artist I've listened to since I was in high school.  Huge fan!!  Check out their music below!

This is a remixed version of Rissi's song!  Find her online at

I've been #TeamEmilyKing for years!  Find her online at

June 2015 Recap

My birthday month!  This past June, one of my great friends united in marriage to a great man.  She asked me to sing for the ceremony 2 years prior.  I had no idea the song she'd request would be my own!  Such an honor to sing Bonded by You!  My friend Tai and I performed a duet of this song at my CD release event so I am sharing a snippet of it with you all.

May 2015 Recap

I sang on Atlanta 57 again!  And to my surprise and joy, I was featured for an interview that day.  A truly great experience!  If you missed it, be sure to 'like' my fan page.  The past two times, I've posted it as a Facebook event and that's how everyone stays current with me, I love having the opportunity to minister to the viewers of Atlanta Live!

April 2015 Recap

I met Damien Ellison a few years ago and we both share a great passion for worship.  He reached out to me some time last year regarding a worship event he was hosting as he completed his Master's program at Liberty University.  We had a good time singing his song Run To You!

March 2015 Recap

I think one of the best ways for you to capture what my release event was like is by going to my fan page and exploring the pictures.  Check out the #MarchIntoLove Release Event Photo Album here.

I designed the button you see above to reflect the message of my music.  More specifically, it reflects the message of C
onversations.  Guests received this as a thank you memorabilia for coming out! We also fed them which they weren't expecting!

The lyrics are, "...God said your beauty is more than what you're seeing in the mirror.  The greatest love, I have supplied it.  Internalize it."  You can't see it from this picture but on the opposite side of the button is a mirror.  Its purpose is to serve as a reminder that no matter how many times you look at yourself on the outside.  The essence of who you are flows from what's inside of you.

Thanks for reading!

Once my voice is fully restored it will definitely be time to give you guys a new cover or something!  For now, here's That Beat!

First Days of 2015

Originally Published: 2/16/2015--I will be updating my site in the coming days!  Be sure to go to my fan page to check out photos from my CD release event on March 29th, 2015,


 It's been a little more than two months since my debut release of The Mixstory, Vol. 1: Tales of Love.  I've had a great time sharing this music with everyone.  And I look forward to doing greater things throughout this year of 2015!

I'd like to take a moment to share with you a few updates.  But first, if you haven't heard any music from the project, go ahead and listen to "That Beat."

January 2015 Recap

I was blessed to share songs of worship with the viewers of Atlanta Live on WATC Atlanta 57!  My pastors are regular hosts with the TV station.  This was truly a great experience and one I hope to have again in the upcoming months.  If you missed it, it's okay, check out the video below.  And please feel free to visit us at The Tabernacle Assembly of God in Decatur, GA.

It's interesting to think that I first visited my church because of a commercial on Atlanta 57 in 2013. Pastor Ron Phillips was visiting and I wanted to hear his message.  I've been at the church since then so I guess you could say Atlanta 57 has been quite a blessing in my life.  Thanks to Pastors Mark and Cheree Haston for the opportunity and for being my spiritual parents as I continue to grow in the things of God.

I also went to support Casey J's Live Recording which was AMAZING!  If you are not familiar with her, check out her music at  Since we're still in the middle of February as I'm writing this I'll also mention that I was able to go to Fresh Start Church in Duluth, GA (where Casey J is the worship pastor) for their ReFuel Worship Conference.  These events are always beneficial to help me learn and grow in ministry.  I found a video of her singing on Atlanta 57 too so I'm sharing with you all!  PLEASE look for her CD this April.  The music is awesome and I simply LOVE ministers of the gospel who pour themselves out to God.

December 2014 Recap

Back side of physical copy

The Mixstory was released on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, and!  And on December 15th physical copies arrived!  I initially ordered 150 copies and am now down to about 30 which is exciting for me.  It's time to reorder now!  I cannot say enough how grateful I am for the support.  It is such a great feeling to know that people love and respect something that means so much to me.  These are my heart's songs...and I hope they will be yours too!

Abundant Life Worship Center-Hephzibah, GA

A chunk of my CD sells took place at Abundant Life Worship Center (ALWC) thanks to my other spiritual parents, Pastors Hardie and Evett Davis.  They were fully supportive.  And I appreciate ALWC for investing in the vision and for recognizing that you can talk about love and relationships in a God-honoring way.
