Thirty Four Years Later

Thirty four years ago I sat with anticipation in my seat at the Vets Memorial Coliseum in Columbus Ohio to see this concert. I was graduating from high school and trying to determine what I was going to do with my life.
After witnessing the production and being deeply moved by the emotion and performance of Barry Manilow's songs, I made a decision to follow a musical course for my life.
Since that day I have had the honor of producing over 1000 live events and doing things in the music business that became benchmarks for many other people. Today that musical passion is still used as I lead worship at The Landing Community Church in Glenpool, Oklahoma. In 2000 I founded a non-profit organization know as the Dreams2Destiny Center,Inc. to help people realize their life's calling and purpose and begin to pursue it. I recognize that you must go after the things that you want and when you invite the Lord into the mix, well He is able to turn your dreams2destiny every time!
Tomorrow night, I come full circle as I get the wonderful opportunity to see the man and hear the music that ignited my soul and launched me into a world where I would see millions of people pursue their purpose.
Mr. Manilow, you may have thought that show in Columbus was just another event. For me, it became the catalyst for becoming everything I was designed to be. Just keep writing those songs that make the whole world sing!
