Quote from Johnnie;
"There are many in my life who have been an inspiration to me. Of course my parents have always given me support, Mom always doing what she could to support any of us kids in our endeavors. In high school, a music teacher named Judy Miller Meeks was my  Choir Director who made it cool for football players to be in choir. That is where I really fell in love with the art of music. Of Course in college, Dr. Robert Ferrington, or as we all called him "Doc" was and is to this day one of the greatest men I've ever known. His concern and love for his students was paramount in his directing and leadership of His students. Most Importantly and yes you know I was going here, Thanks be to  God, His Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit for allowing me to do what I know thousands would like to do. And all this in spite of who I am. For I am a sinner saved by grace. Thank You Jesus." I Am A Child of The KING.
