City of Pontiac
Community Relations Specialist / Arts Commissioner
City of Pontiac
I love people❤! I believe that we are all connected and share various commonalities that bind us together if we could just learn to overcome our prejudices of ethinicity, religion, and social class and realize that we are one race..Human. Music for me is the dessert of life, it has been the melody that has propelled me through the challeges and victories of my existence. My love for music, lyric, rhythm and rhyme is the essence of who I am. Currently, I work for The City of Pontiac for Mayor Deirdre Waterman who has made astounding progress in our great City. I am employed as a Community Relations Specialist who understands the plight of our community and passionately works to connect from a true sense of concern. I am also a Arts Commissioner for the City of Pontiac who loves the various forms that define art. Personally, I am a Choir director, singer/songwriter, producer, poet, studio engineer and a I.T. guy who love computers. Wednesday at 10:45 I invite you to listen to Professor Mark Stone and I as we present our collaborative community musical effort entitled 'Soul Food" "Music As A Ladder and A Bridge" We believe that music has healing properties as we engage one another in song our differences are set aside as we sing and play together we become as one.
