Share your top 2 most proud accomplishments to-date:
One of my most proud accomplishments to-date would be being the 1st winner of The Walmart Next Gospel Superstar Competition. I'd done American Idol three times, Sunday Best three times and The Voice two times. They all told me no. As an artist, that can be very discouraging, but it took that one YES that allowed me to walk through the open door God prepared for me. Although I was told no, I kept pushing and persevered.
Another proud accomplishment for me would be being a guest singer on a national television premier. I didn't have to audition for the role. I was referred by someone, the company researched me and I got the role. This was one of the biggest things that's ever happened in my life, but it won't be the last.
What advice would you share for thriving in uncertain seasons?
It is important to have a relationship with God at all times. Having a firm foundation with God is better than any situation that may arise in your life. When you remain consistent with him, he will continue to give you what you need to succeed. God knew the uncertain season would come before it arrived. Why not have a relationship with the author, the one who created the heavens and earth? I use the closed doors that God allows to be my compass in life.
What is next for you in 2023 and beyond:
2023 and beyond for me will be me embracing more of the television and film industry. I want to continue to make a positive impact in the world by sharing my message of hope and faith with audiences on all levels through television and film.
