Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, my love for music began in my adolescent years and began to show through while in high school. I enjoyed performing in the high school musical productions and stretching out of my shyness of singing. During those years my music appreciation expanded to other various genres which included: Opera, Broadway Musicals and more. Many times after school, I would jet home to change clothes, then turn around to hop on public transportation to head down for opening night events at the historic Academy of Music in Philadelphia. I absolutely loved the experience of hearing Leontyne Price, Jessye Norman, Renee Fleming, just to name a few!
In 2009, I started my music production company, OOAL Productions. With a background in music, it seemed a natural path to follow. It afforded me the opportunity to promote and produce many concerts events with artists such as: LECRAE & 116, Tasha Cobbs, William McDowell, Mali Music and many others.
In 2016, I started Indie Go Worship, where my focus shifted from the established artist to wanting to help bring light and music exposure to the Independent Artist that wasn’t signed a record label to provide a platform where their music could be heard.
From the start of Indie Go Worship, I have had the privilege of working with some amazing Independent Artists such as: Thomas (TC) Clay, RESOUND, Benita Jones, DaTruth, Michelle Bonilla…the list go’s on!
Birthed out of Indie Go Worship came Indie Go Inspire, LLC which is the “house” for our Music
Apparel Line, the Annual Music Industry Conferences, and our Global Community Outreach Initiatives (GCOI).
Our commitment to GCOI in particular is exciting! A portion of every item sold from the IGI Apparel Line goes towards teen outreach mission projects and providing clean drinking water in areas around the world without a clean water source.
I had no idea that those various early music experiences as a young African American teenager, were helping to shape my world view.
Through lessons as a teen and now as an adult, one thing shines bright above all for me…we are a global family!
We are a global Family, that Christ came to redeem.
“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings glad tidings of good things..” Isaiah 52:7.
