Voice4Society Supporter! – Wilburne Mathurin

We love working with new groups and new people! 

We received this testimonial from Wilburne over the summer and are ecstatic in sharing it with you!

“After meeting the Voice of Society group via my Facebook fan page, the person from the group that I spoke to in particular was Tiffany. She was the one who encouraged me to start working with “DJ Courage”, Lance. I, being a young man  interested in using my gifts for the glory of God, love to meet other young persons who share that passion.

Some time after, I added Lance as a friend on Facebook and started talking to him. In no time, we met and started putting songs together. Well, Lance already had his songs written up, and he was very happy to have me to sing whilst he did his rap. Our first song, “Anything You Want” was a track full of energy. I was surprised at Lance’s composition skills.

When he sent me the song through Facebook the first time, I couldn’t stop playing it for some time cause I was hocked by the song. A while afterwards, we finally met by one of my producer’s, Michael “Shortman B” John in Paix Bouche, Babonneau. It was nice to finally meet Lance in person. Afterwards, the tracks just kept coming and coming. Lance kept on writing and he always came looking for me to lay the vocals down for him on his tracks. We later recorded our next song with another friend, Wesley “J West” Austin “My Identity”.

We recorded this one by producer Cyprian “Hyer Dan” Charles in Ciceron. Hyer Dan was also responsible for mastering the track “Anything You Want”. Lance and myself also recorded our last song “He Will Always” at the same studio. Since then, we’ve performed some of the songs at two functions. I’m really happy that I met Lance.”

We’re so happy to have helped with those connections Wilburne!

Tina graciously donated a copy of her book, “Before the Beginning.”

beforethebeginningcover

In eternity, the eons are endless and creativity continuous. The species of Homo sapiens created in Eden was unique….but not totally original. Heavenly beings resembling modern man had been created long before Adam, and some of them once lived on Earth. 
Existence on earth is utopia until Helel Ben Shachar, beautiful and loved, becomes a rebel and a liability to Earth’s mission. A contagion strikes those who agree to worship Helel. Fear and violence destroy angelic beings who had only ever known peace and love. Helel names High Governess Atara the Queen of Heaven. Abba, the Creator, grieves. His eternal heart aches, then becomes angry. Anything that opposes His essence is named His enemy. Justice is created and a Holy censuring begins. High Governors Michael and Adi grieve the demise of their banished friends and their cherished Earth. 

 

Tina Webb (aka T. Webb) writes speculative Christian fiction that portrays the dynamics  of the physical and the spiritual world. In December of 2013 she published her first nonfiction book, an inspirational devotional called: Selah, Daily Quotes for Daily Meditation. Her husband Doug, an ordained minister and business owner, is the author of the nonfiction series: The God On Trial Series. They have six children.

Thank you so much to James DiBenedetto for donating a copy of the first two books of your “Dreams” series:
“Dream Student” and “Dream Doctor.”
Here is the description of “Dream Student” (Book One) in the “Dreams” series:
What would you do if you could see other people’s dreams? If you could watch their hidden fantasies and uncover their deepest, darkest secrets…without them ever knowing? 
Sara Barnes is about to find out. She thought that all she had to worry about was final exams, Christmas shopping and deciding whether she likes the cute freshman in the next dorm who’s got a crush on her. But when she starts seeing dreams that aren’t hers, she learns more than she ever wanted to know about her friends, her classmates…and a strange, terrifying man whose dreams could get Sara killed.

If this sparked your interest, here’s the description of “Dream Doctor” (Book Two) in the “Dreams” series:
“I didn’t expect to be woken up by someone I don’t know dreaming about killing somebod
y. I thought I was done with that once and for all…” 
But Sara’s not done with it. As if adjusting to life as a newlywed and starting medical school weren’t difficult enough, she’s started seeing the dreams of everyone around her, again. Before everything is said and done, those dreams might destroy Sara’s hopes of becoming a doctor, wreck her marriage and even end her life…
