When I first saw the land that is my new studio it had been abandoned for years. 10 foot tall grass, snakes, coyotes, etc... but where others saw dilapidation, I saw hope. I saw promise. Several advisors told me not to do it. They gave many reasons. It’s a money pit, timing isn’t right, and so on. But I sat there and prayed about it. I came to peace with it, and I bought it. Now, every day I drive in and see thousands of people working there; working in my dream to build their own.
To think that all of my hard work and a lot of God’s grace have met me at the door of all that I dreamed humbles me to tears. I’m so full with gratitude every day.
I can’t help but look back on my life and remember all the dark days. The first 28 years of my life were miserable. So much so that I was suicidal. I was so tired of living my life in pieces when all I wanted to do was live my life in peace.
My biggest issue and question was this “God, why would you put all of these dreams inside of me and not show me a way to accomplish them.” Nonetheless, I kept working and I kept pressing. What I didn’t know at the time was that every step I was taking was moving me closer to my goal (even the ones that I thought were setbacks). But I kept pressing.
Today I want to challenge all the dreamers reading this. I want to challenge you to keep pressing. GET THERE! GET IT DONE!! I know you can. No matter your age, no matter your circumstances, you too can make it. When you pray, believe!!

Happy 4th of July!! This is how I started mine. My Mother loved holidays, and this was the annual family reunion time. Wish she was here, but she took care of everyone but herself. Nina Simone said it best, “You use up everything you got trying to give everybody what they want.” Put YOU on YOUR list. YOU ARE WORTH IT! Let’s commit to taking better care of ourselves. That is true independence. #stillthinkingaboutjohnsingleton

Auhhh.... soooooo...... here’s the deal. This is not the way to get my attention if you’re looking for a role in one of my shows. Please DON’T DO THIS, SAVE YOUR MONEY!! This is the third time that someone has done this. PLEASE STOP! To audition is FREE!! I’m sure you can use that money for a better purpose.
I love that you want to work with me, and I love that you invest in yourself. But when you do things like this it puts my team on high alert and makes me look at you sideways. I know the message that you want to send is a positive one, but this comes across as the opposite.
Again, the best way to work for me is to AUDITION and it’s FREE! We post breakdowns all the time for actors. JUST COME AND AUDITION.
And by the way, you were great in THE NIGHT OF! It was my favorite show a couple years ago. I ALREADY SAW YOU!! So just audition and keep your money!! Again, I appreciate your effort, but that’s not the way to work for me.
God bless you dreamer. I have no doubt you will make it one day!!
