Alcohol and drugs became my God. Sin became a normal way of life for me. . I found myself alone. I had no feelings until one day I felt my soul slipping into hell. I cried out to Christ Jesus, he came to my house and save me. God kept me as I held on to his Word for my life. July, 1997 – is when I got delivered from Alcohol and drugs. I have never gone back; by the Grace of God I am still free of any Alcohol or drugs. Michael went to Charlotte NC stayed at the Men shelter until God moved him into Michael’s first apartment in Charlotte NC. Michael joined Nation Ford Community Church where he worked in the youth ministry.

Michael was license as a minister of the gospel, February 6, 2011 by Bishop Charles R. Walters Sr. Michael started his own business, International Electrical Solutions Inc. (Electrical Contractor) in 2007. .Michael began to develop a strong passion to reach out to the homeless and hopeless. Michael joined with 5 ministers in Charlotte NC, travelling to different outside locations every Saturday giving out food, clothing and the Word of God.
This is my passion for ministry, to give back to the needed what God has so freely given to me. I thank Almighty God for the gift and talent he has given me to do what he has sent me to do. I feel bless to be chosen to do this. When I minister with spoken word/gospel rap and dance I pray that it will invoke a mighty praise and worship in the people, so that they will give The Creator all of their being. “Testify With Your Feet”.
Without a doubt, Bonita has been anointed to sing! She was born on March 28, 1971 in Stamford,CT and was singing before she could even speak! As early as age 3, Bonita would hear lyrics on the radio and mimic exactly what she heard. During her first live performance, Bonita blew her audience away! People were so impressed and amazed, as they simply couldn’t believe this big voice was coming from such a little girl!
After spending her early years with her parents in Hartford,CT, her family relocated to Kinston, NC in 1974. Bonita would hone her skills while participating in music programs offered in Lenoir County Public Schools. She joined the chorus and in 5th grade, she was chosen to sing “The Way We Were” by Barbara Streisand. When she sang that song, there was not a dry eye in the room. During her 8th & 9th grade years, she was always active in the community, performing at events like NAACP banquets or weddings. She is a graduate of Kinston High School, Class of 1989, an alumni of Craven Community College with an Associates of Arts, and and alumni of the UAFWB Bible College where she graduated as valedictorian of the 2015 class with a Bachelor of Biblical Studies.
To maintain a competitive edge, Bonita took years of private lessons with vocal coaches under the tutelage of Thomasine Hassell, Chantel Hollacheck, the late Wynona Daves, and Martha Mainor.
Bonita’s Singing Career…
At age 12, she started her own gospel singing group, a trio called “Tried by Fire.” Determined and focused, Bonita thrived in her role as band leader and demonstrated her entrepreneurial skills at a very young age. Bonita would open up for all the national recording gospel artists who came to town like Shirley Caesar, John P. Kee, Luther Barnes, The Winans, The Williams Brothers and many others. Bonita has appeared and won first place on numerous occasions at the world famous Apollo Theatre in New York City. By the time she reached high school, she was already considered a professional singer!
Today, Bonita is enjoying the flexibility of being an independent recording artist. Her talent is in high demand, as she is frequently requested to sing at venues and events throughout Eastern North Carolina! Although she’s experienced many tribulations, Bonita’s life lessons are part of her unique tapestry that enables her to relate to people who are hurting. One of her biggest accomplishments is her outreach work with those who are incarcerated, sharing God’s love through song. Indeed, Bonita has defined her own success, choosing to embrace an obedient lifestyle according to God’s will for her life and career. She simply allows God to do the navigation and depends solely on Him to direct her career path- living by her motto, “If I make the way, then I’ll have to pay the way. But if I allow HIM to make the way, he’ll pay the way!”

Chant and Tye (Chanceney Nance and Edwanna “Tye” Williams) are two American Gospel singers originally from Greenville, South Carolina. For over 15 years, they have ministered the gospel through song across the United States. They are known primarily for their upbeat and youthful, contemporary style of traditional Gospel. As sisters, their entire childhood was surrounded by traveling and music, as their grandmother was a prominent singer for a professional gospel quartet, their mother Omelia was a powerful lead singer, songwriter & minster, and their father pastors his own ministry.
By middle school, Chant & Tye had already performed at several talent showcases, eventually landing them at an episode of Showtime At The Apollo, which is still in rotation to this day and can be viewed on Youtube. Throughout the previous years, Chant & Tye have traveled across much of the southeast U.S., notably performing on venues for Bobby Jones, the Rhythm of Gospel Awards, and eventually securing the SC Music Award, “Gospel Artist/Duo of the Year”. Chant & Tye released a self‐titled album from Tate Music Group; all of the material was composed and written by the duo themselves. Many of the songs are influenced from personal experiences such as growing up, dealing with family sickness, and overcoming adversity as a teen. This project is currently available on all major media outlets (iTunes, Amazon, GooglePlay Music, etc). The album provides an array of different styles; The energetic, rock style of Have a Little Talk with Jesus, to the more neo‐soul based sounds of “Over and Over” again. And of course, tapping into their quartet roots with “Will You Be Ready” and joined by the worship single “Stand Still”, this project has a mix of upbeat and contemporary flavor that can reach any audience. Chant & Tye also have their own Pandora music station for fans to stream their music. It is their desire that God’s ministry of healing, deliverance, and power reach all ages of all people, everywhere.

He responded to the song, lived five more weeks, and gave his life to Christ before he died. Shortly after her father’s passing, the song became a part of an EP, called “ Divine Favor”. More songs followed as encouragement to bereaved families and those battling emotional and physical pain from broken relationships. The EP is engineered and mixed by musician/producer/ songwriter, Cassie Bonner (known for his work w/Babyface, Michael Jackson and producing “The Brothers” and “Love Jones” movie soundtracks). It was co-produced by Michele’s cousin, bass/lead guitarist, Raynon Finley.

Michele recently sang backup for gospel legends, Myrna Summers, Kurt Carr, former O’Jays member, Nathan Best and opened for Pastor Marvin Winans prior to his sermon delivery.

Felecia’s writing style is birthed from a multitude of influences. Many of her songs actually derive from dreams during the night. There are countless times that she has been awaken from sleep at 3AM with a full-fledged song in her spirit! That’s why she keeps her recorder or smart phone nearby. She never knows when, where or how the creativity will spring forth. Whether it is the rhythm of a washing machine, the tumbling of a dryer, the dripping of a faucet, or humming of a bird outside the window, she hears the potential for a song in all of her surroundings.
Her musical background is primarily Gospel, but she is also stimulated by the melodic sounds of Jazz, Big Band, Reggae and R&B. However, she appreciates the genius in all music genres.
Her number one inspiration is the love she has for the Heavenly Father, YHWH and his Son, Yahawashi, the living Word of Elohim! (For those who are not familiar with the Hebrew names of the Father and Son, she is talking about the Creator ‘God’ the Father and the Savior commonly called ‘Jesus’ in English. Without Him she could do nothing, but with Him, all things are possible. He is the reason she keeps a song of praise in her heart.
She also has a love for His chosen people, true Israel, and is hopeful that this music will edify and encourage the body of Mashiach to endure through the trials and tribulations they face daily. Her desire is that all who hear this music will be motivated to draw closer to the Father, learn of Him and worship the Most High in Spirit and in truth!
Come into His presence with singing and enter into His courts with praise. We hope you enjoy the music!
