The First Sunday Gospel Showcase and Dinner Buffet has grown to a standing room only, must attend event. Located at The Center City Grill, Arlington, TX.

"I have been in Dallas, Texas area for total of 15 yrs. A proud & active member of The Potter's House Church under Bishop T.D. Jakes. And equally proud member for 30 years of Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity. I have always had a passion for people in general, but specifically a passion for what I characterize as the underdog. Particularly those individuals that are often over looked, or passed over. These individuals not always, but often are socially & or economically challenged. Whom over my 30 plus year career in PR, marketing, & promotions have found that these individuals have great gifts & talents deep down in side of them, that just needs alittle prodding, encouraging, & stirring up so that those same gifts & talents will be given the nourishment needed to grow and flourish so that others will be blessed by them sharing there gift and be encouraged & inspired to do the same thing themselves and thus this process reciprocity will start over and over again and when my days are over this with live on...
One recent success story was on January 19th, 2013, a Dallas based Radio show I'm involved with (Inside Gospel w/ Frankie Wilson) won The Prestigious Stellar Award in Nashville, Tennessee for " National Radio of The Year!" Our show which had been syndicated for less than a year when originally nominated, would be a story likened to David & Goliath, where "Inside Gospel w/ Frankie Wilson....would be David! I am overwhelmed with joy to have been included as such a intrugal part of this organization (Vision Media)," shares Carlton.
Carlton also shares, "I love many aspects of being self-employed. One of the things I love most is being able to be as creative as I want to be, and usually being able to implement that gift of creativity into the idea, vision, or concept that was birthed inside me. Enthusiastically, we will be filming a recently successful Gospel Stage Play entitled "Church Folks...Will Send U 2 Hell." We currently have multiple National DVD distribution offers on this particular project under careful & prayerful consideration. There are a couple of saying's or quotes I used regularly; McConnell day's, "Say What You Mean & Mean What You Say," the other is this, "We must do what we have to do, so that we can later do what we want to do!"
