Your music is truly uplifting. I hear your heart in Travelin On. God is my best friend. Pray for me as I have seemingly fallen apart. I do know that Jesus, said he came to bind up the broken heart and blessed are the poor in spirit.
I left a note for someone to please comment on K. Montez the artist on youtube
he has a heart for God and is very sensitive to the needs of others. Please show him some love. I saw him perform and he took time out to hug and encourage me when I needed it the most.

I heard your song Traveling On on Sirius Radio and I had to stop and turn on the television to see who it was. Wow, I love this song it kinda sounds like Trevrees. Walking In Rythem. I don't know if I spelled it right but, I hope you know who I mean. I am going to purchase this CD and I will be giving more as gifts. I love good music and this is the bomb. Thanks for your music and God Bless you to make more.

As a young man i listened to your brand of real quality soul music while many of my friends were into R&B and hip hop in the early 90's. Lisenting to your last album made me realise that they are still artist creating real music out there. Most of all as a UK Blackman and Father Of three boys I Salute you in your mission to get black men to offer his children more than genocide and Crime as a way of life as in Englang at the moment the black community is determined to harm itself as much as possible thank you brothers "It's all in our hand".
