Where professional creatives flourish; artist who support the theme of creativity, supporting the artistry of others in an environment that thrives on the foundation of excellence and originality. The realm where intellectual originals thrive.Having observed many groups on Facebook, I decided to step out on faith and put my spin on this whole networking activity. I know without a doubt that, building relationships is a powerful bridge that leads to many pivotal destinations. Facebook has been a great networking avenue, and as I move forward deeper into this creative world I realize that, thinking out the box, is where it is at.
I am a member of  Stage 32 whose CEO is Richard Botto, as well as, am an avid supporter of  Soul Tracks, whose CEO is  Chris Rizik, and a few others who have shown me love. I also am part of the 4000+ Unsung group — that same Unsung from TvOne that chronicles the lives of many of our loved R&B entertainers, from Shalamar, Johnny Gill, Heatwave, The O’Jays, Phyllys Hyman, The Whispers, Angela Winbush, etc…I called this group THE INDUSTRY because I wanted it to represent strong willed, creative, and talented individuals. I plan to make it a creative smorgasbord of Literary Publishers, Music Industry Creatives, Arts, etc… I want it to be professional and a great networking resource for all members.So, if you have a product that you’d like to promote, don’t hesitate to post in on this wall, and don’t hesitate a daily word, inspirational messages, upcoming events… etc…Ladies and Gentlemen, I welcome you to THE INDUSTRY ~GD

About G. D. Grace of California

After the release of his fifth self-published novel, “Ripped & Ready (season 3)” GD ramped up for a new endeavor in radio, and on September 2, 2010 his first #BlogTalkRadio show premiered. His first two guest were two literary colleagues from two different sides of the tracks — one a former prison inmate-hustler, single father, turned author — the other, an accredited teacher and single father first time author. The intense on-air climate of cultural differences on the show, at one point, became thick enough to slice with a butter knife, however, it was a very successful event. Despite the clash over marketing approaches both authors remained professional and the outcome was a highly entertaining and interesting show. The seasons that followed incorporated talent from all walks of creativity, so in addition to the authors, GD’s guest lineup included poets and recovering addicts, motivational speakers and entrepreneurs, filmmakers and professionals in sports training and health, and also established artists from highly successful television shows, as well as, NAACP & Grammy Winners. Many shows gave us an inside glimpse inside the lives of legends from Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Ray Goodman & Brown, Bruce A. Hawes (extraordinary writer for the Sounds of Philadelphia), Gerald Alston of The Manhattans, The Delphonics, Howard Hewett, and Chris Jasper of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognized Isley Brothers. Legends of literary Stanley Bennett Clay and James Earl Hardy also brought their distinct creative prowess to the show, as did professionals from the Broadway stage. GD’s show eventually caught the attention of World Media and through this friendship many of the legends mentioned above were tapped to be guests on the show. His friend, and often times, mentor, Wayne Barros became an influential part of the legacy that he was creating one show at time. His friendship, love, and direction helped enforce an inner-confidence in GD which allowed him to stretch his producing skills so the show would have an entertaining variety for the live listener and archive listeners. Between the two audience variations the show has been listened to by over 40,000 people. It has been successful beyond GD’s wildest dreams, and as Season 6 approaches, the adrenalin within him increases. He begins assembling the guest list next month in April 2015, and…
