"New Beginnings" - TV Pilot for OWN

A few weeks ago I was invited to appear in a tv pilot for OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network)!  While OWN has first dibs, it could be presented to other networks if they pass.  The reality themed show focuses on Brenda Browder, her husband, children and controversial, gay, ex husband, J.L. King.  The dynamic between the characters definitely brings forth some critical conversations needed in our cultural dialogue.   I am not at liberty to discuss further details on the concept, but I just wanted to share with you some of the incredible things transpiring in my life.

Pilots are merely selling tools.  Whether or not this show sees the light of day, or if it does and I am not a part of it, I can honestly say I am so honored and humbled that I was asked to participate.  This opportunity presented itself wholly outside of my relationship with Ms. Winfrey...all the more amazing!   When you walk that walk of positivity, all kinds of doors open.  I truly try to maintain this space of gratitude and earnest living, for I know that is how the blessings multiply.

This is an exciting show and I'm sure it will do well when produced.  We should hear something by Thanksgiving.  Please offer your positive prayers.    In the meantime I'm going to keep dreaming, keep being appreciative and keep standing in my light.  Promise me, you will do the same!

Join Our Discussion of Devon Franklin's Produced By Faith

I became acquainted with Devon Franklin after my Twitter BFF Oprah Winfrey introduced him to me the week prior to his appearance on her series, "Super Soul Sunday."  She encouraged me to read his book, "Produced By Faith."  I watched the episode and was moved by Devon's spiritual discipline and zeal for life.  After reading "Produced By Faith" I was inspired in ways I'd never been previously.  Paralleling one's spiritual walk with the filmmaking process, "Produced By Faith" laid out the blueprint for balancing spiritual and career paths in a way unlike I'd ever seen.

Our "Super Soul Sunday Book Club" has selected "Produced By Faith" as our next title and we will conduct an online discussion via Twitter this Friday 9/21 at 8pm EST.  Join us for inspirational quotes, moments and take aways from this life changing book!  If you have not read "Produced By Faith," do yourself a favor and purchase a copy today!  Please feel free to join the discussion... even if you have not yet read the book!  Trust me, it will be the positive lift you need!

Our last discussion of the book "The Untethered Soul" became a trending topic in the US/Canada and we had participants from as far away as Singapore!  We want to have even greater feedback with the "Produced By Faith" discussion.  So please join us this Friday!  We will also give away copies to a few lucky winners!  All you have to do is participate with our hashtag.  Follow me on Twitter @3lwtv for the latest details.

Thank You For This Happy Birthday!

Each day is such a gift! Today, being my birthday, is no exception.  I awoke to literally hundreds of messages on my phone and social media platforms and  the love has not stopped, even as I create this post.  From six of the seven continents I received warm wishes from supporters.  I cannot even describe just how that made my heart smile.

I just want to express gratitude to family and friends for your ongoing love and support of my endeavors.  Life continues to be an incredible gift for which I eternally express gratitude.

My day began as it always does, giving thanks in the still space for which I seek clarity.  I had an early flight from Chicago to Washington D.C.  Upon arrival here, I went to the Sirius XM Radio studios where I had a front row seat to a concert/interview with singer Vivian Green! I love Vivian Green and was thrilled to hear her live.  She belted new music from her upcoming album "The Green Room," due October 9.  Returning to her soulful roots, this project will not disappoint.  She sang "Remedy," though I've only heard it once, it has left an intense impression.  I can easily see it being in heavy rotation.  Ms. Green took questions from the audience and stayed after to graciously pose for pics with us!  This event was such an honor, as there were only 20 people allowed into the session!

After leaving the Green performance, Sampson McCormick took me to dinner at a cute Thai eatery.  Fun times!

I made it back to my hotel where again I responded to the Twitter/Facebook love.  My night was made when I received a birthday wish from Oprah Winfrey!

I am humbled, honored and simply overjoyed by the sea of positivity and love shared today!  I hope we can take this same energy and continue to apply to our own lives!  The world needs us!

Thank you again.  I love you!  Off to bed, as I'm delirious and incoherent.

Vibe Magazine Names 3LWTV In Top 25 Internet Shows

While having breakfast in the Dominican Republic I received the following Tweet:
 I immediately went to the link to see what this was about and was literally speechless!  Vibe Magazine named 3LWTV one of the top 25 shows on the internet to watch!  I was also equally as thrilled to see my friends from The Skorpion Show, "Got 2 B Real," and Kid Fury on the list as well!  This is major for 3LWTV to be endorsed by a magazine that caters to the R&B/Hip-Hop community!  Totally humbled by this honor, I'm hopeful that through education, love and light we will continue close the ignorance gap that for so long has divided the African American community.  
Thank you Vibe Magazine for the support!  I subscribe to the magazine's digital version on my iPad and I love it! You should do the same!  Visit the iTunes News stand today!
