As a singer of great Love Songs for over 30 years now,I had once believed that my most passionate expression of love could only be delivered by me cushioned between the music and the lyrics of those songs while I was performing them on stage...
After reading John Hope Bryant's book,"Love Leadership",I have come to realize a great truth which is that although I have always considered myself a very charitable and giving person,both on stage and off, generosity is not love,especially not the kind of love that it takes to be a "Love Leader"...
John's book helped me to learn and to know deep within in my heart that I am capable of far more than just "singing greatly",so that others may enjoy a few hours of songs of inspiration,but I am highly capable and now desirous of "Loving Greatly"...My Purpose, My Mission, My New Song is, "Love in ACTION" and as a Love Leader,My Goal in this New Decade with this New Generation is to "Love People to LIFE"!!!...I now Sing of both Love and Hope,to Show the Power of Love and to "MAKE HOPE REAL" in people's lives,not only in the Atlanta Community of which I live,but within the global movement of Love Leaders all around the World!!!
