Tune in to get the inside scoop on her upcoming episode!
As promised on last week, the Spiritual Artist Development Series is here! The first installment via SoulProsper Media Group is now available.
Growing up as child musicians, it wasn't hard to tell who would grow up to be great. As church musicians, there were certain musicians that put on a clinic each service. For many Fort Worth musicians, that drummer was Aaron "Woody" Henry.
Whether he was playing with his father and sisters who sang in the family group, or any other artist in the area in search of a solid timekeeper, Woody was on time, in the pocket and jammin' on the one!
He was the quintessential prodigy and marked every drumset he was allowed on. No drumset was a match for Henry's skill, not even run down piece meal drumsets at most local churches.
Intrinsically,Henry possesses the uncanny ability to make any drumset his own, playing to the beat in his heart on the drums he makes his! From early on, he made a name for his young self and developed a following among his peers.
Though average in stature, he stands head and shoulders above most drummers in the metroplex. As an adult, his signature sound has propelled him to the forefront and onto the biggest of stages. Currently working with and jet-setting across the country with chart topping talent like Tamela Mann, "Woody" has finally come into his own.
Along with his grown up, signature sound, he is one of the newest endorsees of the Supernatural brand of Turkish cymbals. SoulProsper Media Group is thrilled to share in the excitement and help break the news of this outstanding achievement.
The Supernatural brand of cymbals is growing with exposure. Top drummers like Mindy Duponte, Lem McEwen, Brandon Harris, Lil' Dave Chiverton and Sheldon Miller play Supernatural cymbals exclusively. Deep on the roster, Woody's cousin Demetrius Williams is also listed as an endorsed drummer. Successful in his own right, Williams credits Woody as his initial inspiration to play the drums. It's no surprise that Woody continues to inspire drummers all over the country.
You from here?!?
Completing Anita Wilson's band trio were two local musicians: Aaron Henry on drums and Nick Clark on bass (currently residing in Austin.) Paired with musician extraordinaire Rick Robinson, these two held down her signature sound! Read more here...

There is a popular statement that says, “Those who can’t do, teach.” To the contrary emerges an extraordinary music teacher who is discrediting this phrase and evolving as an exceptional educator of the arts and a phenomenal Gospel vocalist.
Ronnette Harrison is a vocalist with exquisite tone, a composer of prolific melodies, and an accomplished pianist and organist. Ronnette received a Bachelor Degree in Music Education from Towson University and previously taught in Prince George County Schools in Maryland. Now Ronnette administers private vocal and piano instruction and is making her debut as a Gospel music artist with her first single “Vessel”.
Ronnette began performing as a singer and musician with Gospel Music Hall of Fame inductee Shirley Ables & The Joy Gospel Singers at the age of 11 and has recorded with numerous artists including Vicki Yohe, Pastor Shirley Caesar and Dorothy Norwood. Ronnette is now stepping out as a solo artist after recently spending time as a singer with Stellar Award winning group Isaiah D. Thomas & Elements of Praise, and with popular Washington DC area group Mike McCoy & Voices United.
The songstress recently delivered a stunning performance garnering a standing ovation from industry executives and artist in Chesapeake, VA at the Independent Gospel Artists Alliance Conference. "Ronnette Harrison just simply blew us away at the IGAA Conference," shares Phillip Carter, Award Winning Gospel artist and founder of Independent Gospel Artists Alliance. "Her voice and anointing changed the atmosphere in the room. She will be a breath of fresh air in Christian Music."
Ronnette's heartfelt and expressively sincere single “Vessel” is available on iTunes and is the first glimpse of JOURNEY, Ronnette’s debut solo album to be released in 2014.
As a highly sought after music instructor and worship psalmist, Ronnette has an increasingly busy schedule. She’ll be guest at several upcoming women’s conferences and concerts including the Vision Community Church Women of Worship Anniversary Concert on September 14 in Fredericksburg, VA.
The super charged concert is presented by Rejoice America Radio and will feature Ronnette and six powerfully anointed women including southern songbird Monica Lisa Stevenson and noted vocalist Pamela Johnson. “Ronnette has an angelic voice,” states Brother Reggie Richardson, Owner of Rejoice America Radio. “Her new single “Vessel” will really bless you!”
