Wyatt: Ummmm… Im always excited even though I don’t seem like it. I'm excited to win souls for Christ. Like it’s cool. It’s awesome. Cause I sing R&B and win souls for Christ that way. So to do it this way. A lil spin on it.

Boogie: Now you did bring up your R&B past, can we look forward to any upcoming music? Are you making any gospel music?

Wyatt: I'm just doing everything. I'm just doing it all

{ as she chuckles}

Boogie: Now there is A LOT of Black Excellence represented here. A lot of HBCUs have been represented as well. What does that mean to you? Seeing so much Black positivity, especially with everything that is going on in our communities.

Wyatt: Ummm...I think it is a wonderful thing. You know. I ain’t gon say they. But we have been kept down for a long time. And it's time for us too..{makes the hand motion to rise up}. Let’s take charge. Ladies I need you to have your own businesses. Gentlemen, I need you to take care of your babies. Just saying {laughing}.

Boogie: Now, we have to ask..Gospel album. Can we expect one? I mean we have seen you seen you sing your face off at churches recently. Can we expect one?

Wyatt: *takes a deep breath* I'm definitely on my knees about a lot of things. So im waiting on His {as she points to the sky} answer and what He says. It’s not up to me.

Such a great spirit and we can’t wait to see what the songstress has in store.
