(BALTIMORE – January 15, 2017) – I have to take a moment to congratulate fellow Baltimorean Larry Lancaster. Last Thursday, he hosted a show at the famed Apollo Theatre in Harlem. That was huge!

To say the least, I am so very proud of this recent accomplishment and pray that his star goes even higher. He is a reminder of what hard work and consistency can do for most anyone.
Keep doing what you are doing, Larry! It’s obviously working!
