"I was inspired to sing by my cousins David, Wayne and Jonathan Lewis better known as the music group “Atlantic Starr”. At age 13, I was blessed to be on stage with the King of Pop Michael Jackson. At age 14, I was offered a recording contract with LL Cool J. At age 23, I auditioned for Prince at his Paisley Park Recording Studios in Minneapolis, Minnesota for his all girl group. I just completed my debut album entitled “I Have A Vision” produced by “Philadelphia Music Legend Bill Jolly” who also helped to co-write the album. I loved working with Bill Jolly. His spirit, energy an production ability helped me to present to the world my 1st solo album and I couldn't be happier."

"Songwriting has always been my passion. I had tons of unfinished song ideas that I dreamed of finishing. I just couldn't find anyone to work with who was credible and understood the music in my head. Bill Jolly does! He takes the best of what I have and makes it shine even brighter and takes what's weak and strengthens it until it's a great sounding, polished song all around. It's also great to be able to work with someone who works with the "stars" but is actually accessible and wants to work with you too. I'm living my songwriting dreams now and I couldn't be happier."
Bernard Shabazz. Lyricist. New Jersey.
"I love to write poems and lyrics. Although I don't sing or play music I have always dreamed of turning my poems into songs. I heard about Bill Jolly and took my poems to him. He interpreted the feelings from my words and crafted perfectly suited music to my ideas. I can't tell you how thrilled I am when people respond to hearing my new songs. It has inspired me to create even more works and I am so happy I connected with Bill Jolly."
