This Is My Story
Thomas Carlyle called music 'the speech of angels,' and Longfellow said music is 'the universal language of mankind.' Hymns of praise about the almighty excites me, contemporary melodies affirm who rules the universe and inspirational harmonies prick the hearts of men and women. Praise turns the soul heavenward to keep the mind on things above. Christian music brings great joy to my soul! I was introduced to the world of music as a young member of the Ephesus Boy's choir at Harlem's historic Ephesus Seventh-day Adventist Church, New York City. The choir was so popular with church members it was decided to invite young boy's community wide to join the re-named choir: the Harlem Boy's Choir, with Dr. Walter Turnbull it's director. The rest is amazing history! The disciplines taught by Dr. Turnbull, and his dedicated staff provided learning in reading skills, voice development and music appreciation; influences that affect my musical arrangements today. Under the influence of the Holy Spirit, during those formative years, I promised the Lord, I would make a difference in the world and change lives through the ministry of music. Most of the African American and Afro Latino boys are college graduates and successful citizens in the world. I am a member of the American Guild of Organists, Port Job Researcher at the Port of Oakland, Oakland, CA. and serve the Market Street SDA church as minister of music and organist for congregations at Rejoice Ministries, Salem Lutheran Home, Fellowship church, San Francisco, CA, Capital City SDA church, Sacramento, CA., and guest organist at my home church in New York City. THIS IS MY STORY is a music testimony about life and how the Lord Jesus Christ has blessed me. My music will help you remember that He is the protector and has promised to see us through trails and our sorrows.
