TAMPA BAY — Dreamers of Tomorrow Foundation will kick off The Summer Breeze Music Festival Weekend starting Saturday, July 30 featuring legendary Lenny Williams, Chubb Rock, R&B Soul Singers Calvin Richardson, Tony Terry, DJ Dr. Doom from Jacksonville and hosted by BET Comedian Red Bone at The Water Works Park in Tampa.
On Sunday, July 31,Laughter Without Profanity Christian Comedy Show and Praise, live DVD recording will get underway with world-renowned vocalist Shirley Murdock, Christian Comedian Darrian Perkins, Tony Tone, former Universal Soul Circus Ring Master, and Leatric Lamar at the Palladium Theatre in St. Petersburg.
Legendary R&B/Gospel vocalist Murdock has been on a journey. She starting singing at the age of 15 and her goal was to have a gospel career. In 1999, Bishop T.D. Jakes took Shirley Murdock under his wing and not only did he feature her on his Sacred Love Songs release, he signed her to his label, Dexterity Records.
Since then she has starred in a number of gospel stage plays such as “The Man of Her Dreams,” “Holding on to What You Never Had” and recorded stellar gospel hits like “I Love Me Better Than That” and “It’s In Your Hands.”
“All of my R&B CDs had always had a gospel or inspirational song on them and I always had a gospel segment in my set,” said Murdock. “It’s wonderful to look out at the faces of those that I’m singing to and see they’re being encouraged and uplifted, but after I preach the Word of God, and they catch hold of that word and come to the altar to change their lives…nothing compares to that and I’ve been blessed to do both! I am truly humbled by that fact and just want to walk worthy of this calling to the ministry of reconciliation!”
There is one thing that Murdock has learned throughout her career and that is to enjoy life. Every time she is given the opportunity to use her God given gifts, she does it with a beautiful smile.
