Born Nana Kwame Biney Asiedu Agyemfra in West London to a single Ghanaian mother, he soon moved to Ghana to live with his grandparents, where music became his passion. Kwame was influenced by the rhythms of traditional Ghanaian and West African music as well as Reggae, Folk, and American Soul and Blues. Moving to the United States to further his education enabled Kwame to fulfill his dream of making music. He attended William Paterson University, which is recognized as having one of the finest Jazz and Contemporary Music Programs in the country. At William Paterson, he began pursuing his musical career by teaming up with fellow musicians, creating a classic rock, blues and soul band, The Kause. After leaving The Kause, Kwame met songwriting partner Justin Wilcox at a recording session in Union City, NJ.

The story of William Hollis is more about persevering through life than it is about football. Hollis, who hopes to find his way into an NFL camp this summer, is the ultimate underdog. His story, and his determination, make him impossible not to root for.

William Hollis may never make it in the NFL. If he does, however, Hollis has led the kind of life that someone will turn into a movie.
Hollis, 23, is a 6-foot-1, 245-pound linebacker/defensive end who last played for Tuskegee University, which plays in the Division 2 Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. He began his career at Clark Atlanta, also a member of the SIAC. To say Hollis' life has taken several detours along his road to trying to earn the attention of NFL teams is an understatement.
You don't so much interview Hollis as you simply turn on the recorder, ask him to tell his story and then just get out of the way and listen.
Hollis has played only one season of football since 2009, and that as a reserve who barely saw the field for Tuskegee in 2012. He claims the Tuskegee coaching staff there refused to play him because, though he walked on and earned a scholarship, they had not recruited him.
'I KNOW I COME FROM NUTHIN', BUT I'M NOT NUTHIN'
- WILLIAM HOLLIS
Our interview started with me asking Hollis if, considering where he is coming from, making the NFL was realistic. From there, the William Hollis Experience began.
"I think it's very realistic. I had a workout with the Toronto Argonauts going against about four different NFL-caliber tackles that played one year, two years in the NFL
INTERTWINED touches on that breaking point; that moment where you decide, I'm going to do this because I need to, even if it means going on that journey alone. I want the world to know that great things come from when you take control of your own life and that real happiness comes from looking inside yourself and deciding what's best for you. Nobody can tell you how to live.
Join us as we speak with Director Joshua Curtis and Producer Amber Shane to discuss their new film.
In the meantime, check out thier Kickstarter campaign for this project.

William E. Benston, III, FOUNDER / OWNER, from Maryland. He credits his mother and paternal grandparents for instilling in him the principles of discipline, strong values and the importance of work ethic at an early age. Growing up, music heavily influenced William and that influence birthed a passion. After graduating from high school, he moved to Los Angeles, California with only $800, a dream and an undeterred ambition to make his mark in the music industry. Opportunities in Los Angeles led William to New York to work with Rocafella Records. While in New York, he was introduced to a 35mm camera and discovered another creative medium, photography. He began to intern with an experienced cinematographer, receiving training in film production, directing and editing. The in-depth training he received allowed him to fine-tune his craft and William emerged as the go-to cinematographer and videographer in the urban music industry. As a videographer, William has filmed music videos, documentaries and commercials for popular artists such as Flo-Rida, Ray J, Akon, Trina, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, DJ Khaled, Memphis Bleek and T.I., just to name a few. All of his combined experiences broadened his horizons and allowed for an easy transition into the movie industry as a multi-faceted filmmaker. After a brief hiatus from the industry, William was inspired by God to produce an independent docufilm that would change the way people perceive spirituality, God and ultimately the world. His docufilm, It Has Begun, proves that the Bible is based on factual information and real-time events while detailing the importance of salvation. By utilizing his personal and professional experiences, talents, relationships and God-given purpose, William is on a mission to educate and restore faith through It Has Begun. William is a devoted father, CEO, visionary and philanthropist currently residing in Atlanta, GA.

What does art mean to our nation? What are the implications of national monuments? Join us as art historian Bruce Cole, Senior Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center in Washington D.C., talks about art and our national heritage.
From 2001 to 2009, Cole served as the Chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Appointed by President George W. Bush and unanimously confirmed by the Senate in 2001 and again in 2005, Cole was the longest serving Chairman of the NEH. Under Cole's leadership, the NEH launched key initiatives, including We the People, a program designed to encourage the teaching study and understanding of American history and culture, and the Picturing America project, which uses great American art to teach our nation's history and culture in 80,000 schools and public libraries nationwide. He also created the NEH's Digital Humanities Initiative and Office, which made the Endowment a national leader in this new frontier of humanities access and knowledge. Under his tenure partnerships were developed with several foreign countries, including Mexico and China.
Born in Ohio, Cole attended Case Western Reserve University and earned a master's degree from Oberlin and a doctorate from Bryn Mawr. He is also a recipient of nine honorary doctorate degrees. For two years he was the William E. Suida Fellow at the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florence.

HAVE THE COMMUNISTS PUT THE FEAR OF OBAMA, THE DOJ AND THE IRS INTO THE CATHOLIC CHURCH?
This week the hand of God has revealed to the entire country the sin of holocaust abortions.The planned slaughterhood of the innocents and the sale of human body parts. Even cannibals know what they are eating. A fetus is a communist buzzword lie to harden your heart to the torture of little children. These tiny infants are being drawn and quartered. A medieval practice performed on William Wallace of SCOTLAND. . A fate worse than death. Judas delivered Christ up to be crucified for thirty pieces of silver. These Judas' bid it up like it is a human body auction. Then the democratic partie de la muerte has the gall to tell you the child being torn apart feels no pain. Now we learn that the baby is kept alive as long as possible to get the best hearts, livers, legs, feet, and lungs etc. They even turn the baby around in the womb to get better access to the most valuable organs.
