David’s contributions to the music industry are without question. He has been on stage since the age of 5 singing with his families group and Grand Ole Opry stars, The Cook Family Singers. As an independent artist, his body of work has garnered him an impressive 18 Emmy Award nominations and 7 wins. He has been inducted into three musical Halls of Fame. He has had multiple number one songs, written and performed many television theme songs and produced musical scores for various television series. Among his performance titles he has been named "Christian Entertainer of the Year", "Male Vocalist of the Year" and "Comedian of the Year." He has penned over 3,000 songs and produced songs for iconic legends such as Terri Gibbs, Gloria Gaynor, Dee Dee Sharp and Chubby Checker. He has written under various pseudonym and ghost names since he was a child. 

He holds a degree in law, music & psychology. He is the founder and current CEO of the Artists Music Guild, a network base company that connects artists with industry professionals advising and leading them into the proper course for career mapping. He has mentored and developed several young artists including Marlana VanHoose who has stepped onto the worldwide stage under his development and sang for both the RNC’s national convention as well as the National Day of Prayer during the inauguration of Donald Trump. 

Finishing its 7th year in existence The Artists Music Guild has grown to be a company known for giving back to the community. It provides book bags and school supplies to under privileged kids in the public-school systems. Facilitating musical and entertainment legends into the classrooms for arts education and mentoring. The Guild just finished its 7th AMG Heritage Awards, which airs nationally into 17 million homes across the country. To date David has been the executive producer each year which included many of his celebrity friends such as Chubby Checker, Billy Gilman, Bucky Covington, Clifton Davis, Freda Payne, Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr. It is the most impressive thing I have ever been able to take part of. The Guild brings these legends to the kids of today and makes their careers relevant by reinvention. David is an educator and role model for all people. His greatest joy is working with kids and providing continued arts education to the public schools and their classrooms. 

As displayed, David is an impressive person, liked by millions around the world and is an iconic legend himself. He deserves to be put in the North Carolina Musical Hall of Fame, I encourage each of you to sign the petition, and encourage others. He truly deserves this great honor.
