Mr. Carl Thomas

Most of you know by now that the company that I work for; Konnessi has just signed a contract with Carl Thomas and I've been blessed with the opportunity to manage his Social Media account.  I am super excited and looking forward to working with Carl's team.

For those of you that don't know Carl Thomas; he is an R&B artist that released a single in early 2000 "I Wish" which topped the R&B charts and set the stage for his debut album, Emotional later that year.  On the success of the single, and the album's other singles charted on the R&B charts:  "Summer Rain" at #18 and the title track "Emotional" at #8.  The album was certified platinum certification for 1 million sales.  His 2nd album, Let's Talk About It,  was released 23 March 2004.  Sadly, no singles from this album charted.  The album was hurt by the death of Thomas' step brother, Duranthony Evans.  He was shot and killed in a drive-by on Halloween night on Aurora's east side.  This devasted Thomas, causing him to take time off from music and promotion of his album.  On 7 December 2006, Thomas earned a  Grammy Award nomination along with Chaka Khan, Yolanda Adams, and the late Gerald Levert for "Everyday (Family Reunion)" a song from the soundtrack of Tyler Perry's Madea's Family Reunion.  His third albu, So Much Better, was released 30 May 2007 and reached #25 on the US Billboard 200.

He is now signed with Verve Music Group.  Thomas has a new album entitled "Conquer" due out on 4 October 2011 in the USA.

Below is a video of Mr Carl Thomas expressing he's enthusiasm on working with the Konnessi team and yours truly#lol.  Islyndi, is a colleague of mine who's an Intern for Frank Caprio and a huge Carl Thomas fan.

Joined in the hip he says#lol

I need a favour...I need you all to PLEASE  "like" his facebook page and follow him on twitter @Mr_Carl_Thomas 

I'm sure most of you remember how "rough" things were for me when I initially arrived in the States and I am only too grateful to be where I am today and can only marvel at all that God continues to do in my life.  God sure has been ordering my steps and I am filled with so much joy and thanksgiving as I am reminded everyday how great our God is.  The scripture says:  "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into  the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him”. “But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit “ 1 Cor 2:9-10  How reassuring is that?  It sure gets me all excited just reading it...I would just like to urge any of you that are going through any challenges to stay in the Lord and be reminded that  “If God be for us, who can be against us?” Rom 8:31 He wants you to experience peace and to know that He's got this!! 

Wishing you all a super weekend, take care and keep warm and I'll try to stay cool this side of the world.  It is horribly humid with nauseating hot air#yuck!! But hey, I'd rather have this than the winter#lol

Stay Blessed xoxo
