February 27, 2013

PG 13Encouragement Speaker Derrick Hayes gives a DERRICK Interview by asking 7 questions through each letter of his first name to give you an insightful perspective from other experts, entrepreneurs, celebrities and up and coming super stars.

Today’s DERRICK Interview is with PG-13 born Delontaye Taylor who is a Christian artist that has a heart for God’s people. His desire is 2 win souls for Jesus Christ & allow lives 2 be changed through music!

Born and raised in Norfolk, Virginia, God decided to move him and his family (lovely wife Amanda and 3 handsome boys) to Columbus, Georgia. PG-13 has a passion for the youth and they cling on to him like a magnet. At the age of 23, he started with a group called Collaborated Minds, where they put out 3 mix tapes (Taking Back Our Streets Volume 1, 2, and 3) and a high impacted album in 2010, called “What’s Cooking.” After a successful album and 3 mix tapes in the streets, God spoke to PG-13 and guided him in the direction of Street evangelizing.

In February of 2012, God gave him the vision to record his 1st solo album called “LEGO”(Less Evil Greater Overflow). It was released on August 18, 2012. He released his 1st hit single called “Going Home” featuring Dunbar, which video has shot to the top of the charts on a variety of Social Networking sites in such a short period of time. His 2nd single released was “Christ on Swag.” This is a song that ministers to the youth about sagging their pants, and embarrassing themselves. To hear his music, check him out on Reverbnation, Soundcloud, or Youtube.

Where are all the Pretty Girls at?  Now that I know where you are

When I say Pretty Girls you say Rock Pretty Girls – Rock   Pretty Girls – Rock

I need everyone in here to give all the Pretty Girls a hand. We have to keep encouraging our Pretty Girls so they will stay Pretty.

I was raised by a Pretty Girl who was raised by a Pretty Girl. Now I’m married to a Pretty Girl and together we are raising Pretty Girls.

Now we said Pretty Girls ROCK, and the word ROCK is the key. We all need a ROCK, a foundation. Anybody can be a Pretty Girl for a day but it takes a ROCK to keep you a Pretty Girl for life.

Through the word ROCK, there 4 Things that every Pretty Girl should do on a daily basis.

R is for Read – Books, magazines, and newsletters.

O is for Obey – Follow instructions, stay out of trouble. Listen to wise Parents, Teachers and elders.

C is for Commit – Don’t always quit, find something you like to do and never give up.

K is for Keep.  Keep your word and keep your dream alive.

If we Read, Obey, Commit, and Keep our dreams alive our ROCK will always be in place for us.
