Meet Crystal Joy –
“My mission is to creatively teach, inspire and encourage empowerment.”
“Witty”, “Talented”, “Sincere”, “Multi-talented”, “Compassionate” are just snapshot of how the many friends, colleagues and audiences describe the one of a kind Crystal Joy. Her resume is as unique as her soul – determined yet comical. Regardless of the circumstances, she is a fighter, not just for herself but all who come in contact with her. She makes application of her unusual attributes through her church, family, career and community by her ability to stand strong with or without a smile on her face knowing the hope that she can never deny in Christ. “It’s the strangest thing, the more challenges, disappointments, and heartaches you have in life, the more you realize how true and able God is to fulfill every area of your life. He is definitely my all in all.”
Crystal gives all the credit for her accomplishments to God. She knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that her gifts, talents, education and hands-on experience in an array of industries was orchestrated for her to utilize in glorifying God while serving His people. She conveys this through her passion for the arts and compassion for people.
Growing up in the Methodist church, she moved multiple times as a pastor’s kid to numerous cities in the United States. Although uprooting a family year after year is challenging and stressful, she has seen it as an unique opportunity to grow in social skills and a simple revelation: EVERYONE wants to be loved, respected, valued and appreciated.
As an accomplished author, her recent book titled “Who ART in Heaven? Understanding and Incorporating the divine symmetry of arts and academics” is now available as ebook or paperback.

Meet Carlos Hale –
Carlos Hale has emerged as one of the leaders in urban gospel music. He has created a platform for both indie and national artists with his unique brand Urban Soul Café. USC has set a new standard in Christian entertainment. A native of Memphis, Tennessee, Hale was introduced to gospel music in 1993 by the late Grammy Award Winning Songwriter and Choir Director O’landa Draper. Although Hale was a known member of the infamous gang, The Crips, he was approached by Bishop Brandon B. Porter, Pastor of the Greater Community Temple Church of God in Christ, and asked to organize a youth night and serve as the mc. One year later he accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior and he soon realized that he had been called to the ministry.
Hale’s motto is, “It’s more than music, but it’s a lifestyle!” In the near future he plans to expand the brand by doing syndicated radio, more national events, concert tours and potentially owning an Urban Soul Café venue.
