Challenges that had to be overcome:  When I started all I had was a dream and some songs. I did not have musicians, singers, location, or a date. I began to reach out to singers I had worked with over the years; some said no, some didn’t return my call, but 11 of Detroit’s finest singers agreed.  With the musicians I shared my vision with Brandon Holland who I have worked with at my home church for the past 20 years. Brandon assembled a band that was top notch and they breathed life into the music

Advice for Aspiring Artists:  Dream and have the finances to make sure it’s right

Any fun facts or trivia related to the project:  Deitrick Haddon once told me Moses’ ministry didn’t start until he was 80, it took me 40 years to see my dream become a reality; never stop dreaming.
