As a composer of classical music, I struggled for 21 years down the road of disappoints and defeats, trying to get my music out. The obstacles seemed insurmountable. Finally, I reached the end of my wits and I asked the question, “Am I ever going to get my music out?” Surprisingly, I heard the words whispered softly to me, “If you persevere.”

This was the turning point for me. I came to realize that there were several things that I needed to do if I were to be successful with my music: 1) think positive thoughts; 2) enlarge my vision; 3) fight to overcome every obstacle; and 4) have faith and believe that God would provide everything that I needed to achieve success.

With this enlightenment, we began to embrace mountainous successes. We produced a documentary in Portland, Oregon which aired on PBS in cities across the country. Later, I was invited to have my oratorio, “The Crucifixion,” performed at Carnegie Hall which led to another premiere at Carnegie Hall and this premiere led to an international premiere in Prague, Czech Republic.

You must fight to overcome every obstacle – never give up!
