    Christopher gives me a great song to revamp and revitalize EVERY TIME!! I do not have an opportunity to produce Gospel often, but when I do I always hope and pray that it is the style similar to his. He always (3x) gives me a great song, great concepts with a great message. I am blessed to have worked on his projects and become his producer over the past year. Grateful for the opportunity, thanks so much bro. Ready for the next one.

    Fresh Prince and DJ Jazzy Jeff. Missy and Timbaland. Justin Timberlake and Timbaland. Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams. These are a few Artist-Producer relationships that have real chemistry. This is something that we are developing as we build his amazing songs!! This guy has something real and I'm glad he asked me to hop on the train with him! Let's keep building C!

    Christopher, not only has the coolest name in the world, but definitely gave me a great song to help produce!! I don't have an opportunity to produce Gospel a lot, so when I do I really like to take time to dive into it to make sure the music compliments the message. Great working with him!
