Gospel Recording Artist Neiman Ray’s Thoughts on Bullying

Gospel Recording Artist

As a child that was bullied, I recommend two things: 1. Tell someone, regardless of what you think people will say or do to you. 2. Take a self defense class, not only to gain defensive skills, but also your self-esteem and confidence. And know that it gets better. God loves you.

Come see him perform live his new single “B-I-B-L-E” opening for the Gospel Segment of the show!

Bullied for not following changes, yet faced our worlds adversity in exchange for admiration.

Guest Dance Performer at Talent Showcase

Hey I am Tomecko Apollo Johnson. Creative movement is what I do,perform,teach and the feeling is what I enjoy.   I was originally born in Memphis,Tennessee ,but you can say I was Texas raised. I enjoy dance because of the people it brings together. The feeling we connect to while enjoying music,the emotions you get through acting,the power of movement is strong. It’s the reason I love to teach visual poetry to share my life with someone, because the dance was created through the stories I lived. I think I’m like every other dancer, I started after seeing Michael Jackson and from there the train began. My mother would tell me I’d have to create my own style if i wanted to become a dancer. I ended up graduating at 17 and asking myself what do I love? What do I want to be?  There the journey began. It has led me to many beautiful people and things that’s fruitful to who I am inside. I journeyed to Florida for the first time, then to California for the show “So you think you can dance”, then to San Antonio, Texas. The spirit of music and divine creation has taken me many places. For this, I am thankful to give you, my style of Hip Hop…created from the kid unheard in big places.

Bullied for not following changes, yet faced our worlds adversity in exchange for admiration.
