I am an urban gospel DJ specializing in getting the party started through urban gospel music. I believe in kingdom building through empowerment and encouragement. It is my hope that one day, more church folk will support more church folk to be even better kingdom builders. I thank God for His leadership and pray that we all will continue to follow God's lead in what ever He is calling us tling us to do.
I grew up in Austin, Texas. I married my wonderful wife, Loritta Denise Peoples, in 1988 and we have had the honor of traveling the world thanks to the United States Air Force. I retired from the Air Force at the end of 1987 and launched my music business, New Life Music. I now live in Belleville, IL which is a suburb of St Louis, MO. I believe the Lord has planted us here for a while and we'll try to pay attention to His lead as to what move is next.
The mission of New Life Music is to empower kingdom building. The multi-faceted approach includes helping ministry minded, urban gospel music artists to create passive income that will empower and encourage more outreach ministry. My kindom building strategy encorporates urban gospel music in to youth bible study curriculum. "New Life Music Engages Scripture" is the title of the first lesson. "Put It In Action" is the title of my first compilation CD with songs that will be used in the lessons.

The Lord has blessed me to be able to teach God's truth to pre-teens for several years now. Accordingly, many of my efforts in the community encourage systemic focus and growth starting from school aged youth on.

The Right Rap Radio Show
