When asked her plan La La simply stated she wished to plant a seed: "I know my music isn't necessarily what fans of old school gospel are looking for, but most of them (old school) are saved already. They have a relationship with God already. I want to reach the forgotten. I want to motivate someone in the world to ask what they must do to be saved. I believe I do that through my music. God has allowed me to minister through song. It's a great responsibility and I am honored that God felt I was worthy enough to possess such a talent."
