“People Gotta Know”


Available only as downloads for computers, iPods, or notebooks, this upbeat, rhythmic, and memorable Pop tune raises awareness about a global concern – the increasing health crisis of stroke among young adults.
“People Gotta Know” showcases scenarios in contemporary culture that young adults should be prepared to encounter.

“Your project epitomizes ‘applied artistry’…channeling your creative expression to resolve a real issue for our local community and the world,” said Amy L. Edmunds, YoungStroke Founder & CEO. “Young stroke is both a global and local issue of concern. In South Carolina, nearly sixty percent of all strokes occurring in the state affect those under age 65. This is double the global average.”

Listen. Sing-along. Reflect. Remember. “Get young adults to the doctor/Get them right away/When you see the signs, don’t hesitate/They need to see a bright new day!”

Inspirational Love Songs

Singing "Moonlit Memory"

Singing “Moonlit Memory”

“Sweet Surprises!”, a CD of inspirational love songs, has been re-released for your listening enjoyment!


Available only as downloads for computers, iPods, or notebooks, these 12 one-of-a-kind, scripture-based love songs inspire listeners to revel about love, romance, intimacy, friendship, commitment, and joy.  Several songs feature duets with my bride, Natalie E. Daise.  And the saxophone interludes and accompaniments by saxophonist Gregory D. Whittaker are breathtaking!

Thoughts of my wife, who adds color and harmony to my life, and about the One who gives life are wrapped around each lyric I wrote.  Collaboration with my friend Vernon B. Harris make the music moving and vibrant.

“Sweet Surprises” will move you — in many ways and on many levels.  That’s part of the “sweet surprise” each time you listen!

Order single tracks or the entire album.  I’ll be waiting to hear your response…

The CD’s musical styles include traditional spiritual and also the genres that spirituals birthed:  southern blues, stomp and clap gospel, Gullah Geechee/West African pop, and also a Gullah Geechee/West African/Caribbean blend.  The themes that are highlighted are: African Diaspora; the common cultural connections of food ways, language, rice heritage, crafts, music; the tragedy of enslavement, the importance of family, and the resilience of survival.

This project is funded in part by the South Carolina Arts Commission, which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts.  I collaborated with Travis Winbush, a musician, producer, and Gullah native of Savannah, GA, and Vernon B. Harris.  Winbush and I previously had collaborated on the recording of “Gullah Geechee Mean a Lot!”, a song that I composed following my election to the chairmanship of the federal Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor Commission in 2012.  It is included on the CD.  During the GGCHCC’s   involvement in the 2013 Presidential Inaugural Parade, the song was broadcast from the float as it passed the Presidential Review Stand.

As a performing artist, author, cultural preservationist, and former Chairman and Founding Commissioner of the Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor Commission, I am committed to celebrating and preserving our culture.  Gullah Geechee people, tourists, youths, and adults, I hope, will be pleased.

I am Gullah Geechee.  I am proud!
