More on the Newark International Film Festival
Over the years of doing the radio show, we have had some amazing guests. To say that each guest didn't have an impact in some way would be an insult. The
amazingly talented individuals we've shared the microphone with have changed the world with their actions. It makes one wonder what impact each of us has on the planet. I don't think any
of us wake up with the mission to change the world, some of us do, but we have to remember that we are all on this planet for a reason and purpose, predetermined by the Heavenly Father.
Oftentimes, many of us try to run from that which we are called to do. But when we follow the plan amazing things happen.
This show, this platform is a prime example of witnessing how amazing things happen. We have had some guests on the show who were the first in their industry to
do that special thing. For example, Antonio Fargas was the first black male to portray a transgender female in a major movie, Car Wash. Little did he know that his performance was setting
the stage for today's depiction of a society of people who are societal norms. Another example is Nora Mae Carmicahel, a self-taught artist, was the first Harlem artist to create a Christmas
Tree Ornament for the White House by Laura Bush, paving the way for other artists of color to be acknowledged in a bigger arena. Yet another example is the R&B group Full Force, one brother
Bowlegged Lou gave stem cells to Paul Anthony, his brother, to help save his life so that they can continue to make more music, bringing awareness to the importance of faith, determination,
family and perservence when dealing with illness.
Many of our guests have come from adverse circumstances that ordinarily would have you feeling stuck and powerless to change. However, they had that little voice
that continued to push them to practice, change, follow their dream and press on regardless of the obstacles. I've provided a few examples of people who have impacted me in a special
way. I hope you take a moment to listen to some of our past shows to learn some of the lessons they shared about their journey through life, to stardom. We are all built with this in our
DNA, now what you do with it depends on you.
Be all you believe you could be and be happy doing it!
