Coronavirus Chronicles | Interview with USA Today
Updated: Apr 18, 2021
I can’t begin to tell you how amazing this day has been for me as a freelance musician, as a small business owner, and as a human being. The video shoot this morning for the C4’s tenth anniversary was pretty awesome for me. I was respected and showcased by a producing team of two amazing women. I wore my ACMF shirt and played music written by local composer, Eric Alexander. I truly wanted to support and represent our musicians and other artists throughout Metro Atlanta. I achieved what I wanted and left the project inspired for the next one. This evening I received an official SBA-PPP loan from Bank of America...I am set for the summer! I can’t thank my tax accountant, Donald McAllister, enough for helping me receive my first small business loan for my S Corporation, The Flythe Group, Inc. He has been an incredible mentor to me as well, and I will never forget how much he has done for me since 2007. So, I am pumped, excited, and full of bliss. I have shared my joys, triumphs, lows, and frustrations to show that WE can persevere through ANYTHING. Thank you, my family, my friends, my students, and my colleagues for believing in me and for loving me unconditionally!!
