This lyrical thoroughbred goes by the name of Ayanna Charlene.
Born Ayanna Charlene Atkins on June 20th in Sacramento, Ca. Her parents knew their baby was a performer at heart. They enrolled their daughters in ballet and tap-dancing classes. Ayanna gained a majority of her musical nurturing and development from her father (Jeff Atkins) who toured and performed keyboards with Warner Bros recording
artists Club Nouveau in 1987-89. Ayanna was shy as a child so it amazed her mother when she signed herself up for a talent show at a summer camp she was enrolled in on the CSUS campus. Just 11 years old, she sang live for the first time in front of hundreds of students introducing her talent.
Ayanna fell in musical bliss when she was introduced to the tenor saxophone in Jr. High, where she practiced with her band class for two years. Ayanna later joined the youth choir at Unity Missionary Baptist Church in Sacramento, Ca. And traveled to Bakersfield, Ca to sing at a Baptist Convention. Ayanna also attended highschool at VAPAC (Visual and Performing Arts Charter) in East Sacramento to perfect her craft. There she would take opera alongside all of her required classes and different styles of dance.
Conflict with the district and Sacramento County Office of Education, would later cause the school to close down. But this didn’t stop this young star from shining. In 2007, she fell in love with the art of modeling and started her own modeling and promotions team called Box Of Chocolates. Together they helped promote her first single “Love Letter” written and vocally arranged by herself.

In 1975, Wansel met Gamble & Huff when he was a member of a band called Yellow Sunshine, which also boasted guitarist Roland Chambers who would later become a part of MFSB, the house band for Gamble & Huff's Philadelphia International Records.

Who is “Mr. Wright?” ”Cast in God’s Image”
William Princeton Wright (aka Prince)
William accepted his calling as a drummer at the tender age of seven. While attending college Prince was asked to play the keyboards. He started to travel with an evangelist by the name of “Boywonder “who toured with Shirley Caesar. He also toured in Japan with a group. Later in his life he formed a trio band called the “Concept.” They had two songs that climbed to the top of the R & B charts; “Home Girl” / “Be My Baby.” Later, they found their album as being produced without their knowledge. Prince closest friend, Apostle Weatherspoon, was the one he would reach out to in the midst of a storm, while he prayed to his Heavenly Father for answers. Tune in 20 March 2014 at 7 PM (EST) to hear this story of a man who went through a thunderstorm and then became strong in the spirit!
