"Faith" has been nominated by the Tiffany Gospel Awards for Best new song by a Group. This album is written for all people, who go through life questioning their very existence for being. It offers hope, love, and encouragement to live life one day at a time. It is an effort through songs to remind us that we do not have to be defeated by life. After two years in the making, this labor of praise is dedicated to our Lord & Savior Jesus, from the express command issued to create a musical album that would encourage the youth and remind them, that "Yes I Can Make It" is their destiny purchased by the Blood of Christ. That Holiness unto the Lord is the only way to make heaven, and that anyone, young or old can be freed from the plans the enemies of God has set for them. Thank you for your continued support and many prayers. Truly without you, there would be no success.
