This song is not a diss to any father out there. It’s simply a tribute to my daddy and a plea asking all father’s to take responsibility and be a part of your child’s life no matter what your situation is with his or her mom. I don’t have any kids, but I LOVE kids. And at the end of the day, they are our future. Even though producer, writer and arranger, Herschel Boone and I recorded this song back in 2008, I believe the message is timeless and will forever speak to the masses. After all, it’s based on a true story of a close single mother friend of mine and the bar my daddy set for me growing up. I hope it touches your soul. And ya never know, it may just end up on my upcoming new EP with a new arrangement.

Whatever obstacles you are going through, please know that in the end, everything will work out in your favor. I know because doctors told me I should’ve been dead, I’d never regain vision in my left eye and that my chances of ever performing again were slim to none. While under the care of four doctors a week for two consecutive years and tired of being sick and tired, a part of me gave up. But once I put it all in God’s hands and really started to rebuild my confidence with the help of my incredible doctors, family and close friends, I began to change my mindset!!!
Sometimes when you’re going through hell, it’s hard to see and believe things will get better. Trust me, I felt the same way! However, as soon as I made up my mind to HAVE FAITH, GET UP, FIGHT BACK and THROW AWAY the victim attitude, the positives began to outweigh the negatives. As a result, I can truly say all those obstacles, I now call “TESTS”, have given me a TESTimony!! Without the test, I wouldn’t have a testimony…and my testimony is I’M BACK and better than ever – physically, spiritually, mentally and creatively! I hope I’ve encouraged someone and ask that you will Click Here to hear my story on how I overcame a life threatening obstacle and JOIN ME on my journey to making a dream come true. Be Blessed!
Never give up on your dreams! And never let any obstacle, no matter how big or small, stop you from believing you can achieve anything your heart desires.
I am so grateful to be working Narada Michael Walden and Allee Willis! I have dreamed of this moment coming to fruition for years and now it’s happening!! It’s really happening y’all. Pinch me somebody!!! Be Blessed!
