Director Statement

“At the precipice, we change.”

During the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, I traveled to some of the worst impacted communities in the country. I chose to highlight personal stories of those people impacted by the Coronavirus in ways that will both inspire the soul and provide the raw truth behind the dread and mental toll that occurred with so many Americans.

The world shutdown all around me and I made a personal choice as a man and as an artist to position myself on the frontlines, eager to play my part and service society.

I am thankful for everyone I met and everyone who reached out to wish me great fortune and luck during this dangerous time of my life. I am sorry for all those that worried. I am fine now and I was fine during the entire ordeal. Jesus took the wheel and did all the work...I assure you.
