Thank You!

Here's a quick story of prayer: Seven years ago I wrote down a list of things I wanted to accomplish. I prayed to God that if His will is to be then please allow my heart's desire. I, my family, and friends are living proof that God answer's prayers. It's time to write a new list, but don't worry, I won't hog all of His time. Thank you Father God.

Tracy Carter, we made it!!! Thank you for stepping in when changes were made. A producer hears and sees what makes an artist unique and does not try to change who she is but lets her see what she can become. Thank you for letting me be me. The world has yet to know T. Carter.

Michael Munsell, my friend, thank you for your creative vision. You amaze me. Thanks for believing in this project. You always make me feel at peace through the rough waters. Hi Guy! Thank you too!!!

LaDonna Kearney – Thank you for unconditional friendship! Everyone should have a friend like you!!!

Michael Wells of Wishing Well Studios – Thank you my friend for helping me get to this point.
