I have been an admirer of Crissy Collins ever since I saw her in Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes To Jail (the play), in which she sang one of the best renditions of Jesus Loves Me that I’ve ever heard…..
Then to my surprise, in 2010, I was singing in a choir for a Christmas celebration and Crissy Collins was one of the featured vocalists….. I was so amazed to see her but was too afraid to speak! Then, once again to my surprise, the group I sing with was invited to sing at a program for guess who? Crissy’s mom! Once again, I saw Crissy but was afraid to speak to her!
That night, Crissy did an amazing performance and she also did something else that I didn’t expect….I was aware that Crissy loves audience participation and loves to put the microphone in your mouth for you to sing….well gues who she spotted out! Yep! Me! I was so nervous that I didn’t sing…… (but that’s ok, the next show that she did it, I was ready!)
One day I was online and I received a message from someone on my Facebook wall and guess what it said……something like this……”Jermaine, inbox me, I want to give you my number so we can talk!”
Do I need to tell you that I was extremely excited? You already know who it was…Crissy!
I am such a fan of Crissy and I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to speak with her on When We Speak! I wanted to share that story just to encourage you that sometimes things don’t happen the way you want them to but if it’s God’s will, It will be done! Have a great day!
