Since 1990, Coach Ed Philips has devoted much of his off time to developing the basketball skills of young people in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Using the Huskies name, Coach Ed has mentored as well as developed the basketball skills of over 100 youth and coached a host of Huskies recreational basketball teams. Having a coaching philosophy of “All young people have greatness within”, Coach Ed preferred on making the undeveloped player, a great player. Never turning a child away due to lack of skill, Coach Ed believes in establishing a great fundamental base and building from those same fundamentals. It was in the year of 2008 when Coach Ed acquired Coach J. Howard to assist him in his mission of developing the skills of the young people whom he coached. After years of coaching recreational youth basketball teams, both Coach Ed and Coach J decided to take their recreational team to the next level. In 2010 the two Coaches decided to make the transition from being a recreational team to being a Select Basketball Organization. Using the same fundamental base that had been established by Coach Ed years ago, the organization kept its recreational name (Huskies) and took it to the next level. Now being called the “North Texas Huskies” the organization philosophy is not just for basketball success but for life success. The fundamental base has changed from being one of basketball skill but one of life skills. The NTX (North Texas) Huskies basketball organization believes that “It takes a village to raise a child”, so first and foremost a commitment must be made from the parents. This commitment means that the parents of any participating child must be positively involved in the personal and skill development of their child. Secondly, a commit must be made from the participating child. This commitment involves the child to be a positive and productive citizen, student, and athlete. With these two commitments from both parent and child, the NTX Huskies organization feels that any participating child will not experience failure on or off the court. To help facilitate the academic success of the Huskies players, the organization acquired the educational expertise of Corey Green (Dallas ISD Teacher) as an educational consult/coach. This acquisition would allow the organization to have weekly tutoring sessions for its players which has been a success. Along with the tutoring sessions the organization requires all of its players to give back to the community through various community service projects. The NTX Huskies Organization is a non profit organization that pays all of organizational and player expenses through sponsorships and fundraising. This allows the parents to focus on commitment rather than funding. Currently the organization has one team which is 14U but do to the continuous request and growth the organization will be acquiring more committed coaches and more committed players. If you have any interest in being a part of this organization or becoming a sponsor feel free to email us at email@example.com. You can also check us out at www.leaguelineup.com/ntxhuskies. Please keep in mind that our organization is not just about basketball but about using basketball to build positive and productive young people. Coach J Howard Athletic Director North Texas Huskies

Chris Pringle - HHNR Program Director Christopher “The Ghetto Politician” Pringle has been paying his dues in Hip Hop for a long time. Christopher Pringle has over 30 years of experience in the music business. He started working in the clubs of Brooklyn, NY at the age of 14. He relocated his family to Florida where he began a lucrative career. Coming from New York the people in the south viewed him differently than those working to start their own business. Christopher Pringle was determined to be successful and set out to make history as the first Indy Promotions Company in the state of Florida. His clientele included labels such as Warner Bros, Cold Chillin, Wild Pitch Records, Profile, Skywalker and Tommy Boy Records. After making a ruckus, word quickly spread back to New York. Christopher Pringle returned to New York where he worked with legendary Uptown Records. During that time Uptown Records owned the airways, launching Heavy D, Finesse and Synquess, Mary J Blige and Jodeci and Mid Atlantic Radio under the Master Mind Jimmy Jenkins who trained many executives in the music business. Christopher Pringle decided to broaden his horizon by working with MCA Publishing. With the support of the company he signed his first publishing deal. He continued to climb the ladder of success by making moves as the golden child of promotions – having key roles in the multi platinum success of Uptown Records. Christopher Pringle knew it was campaigning time so he secured relationships with well known people like Kevin Evans, Big John Platt, Troy Patterson, James Jackson and Karen Mason. Christopher Pringle was slowly building a reputation for discovering the best upcoming talents in the music industry and opening and securing business deals with various Recording Artists. Christopher Pringle moved to California where he, working along side Kevin Evans formed “Street Life Records/Scotti Bros Records – working Skee Lo; A two time Grammy nominated Artist, Tina Moore, Sweet Sable, Above the Rim sound track, 12 Gauge, Gangsta Dreasta and BG Knockout. Christopher Pringle was also consulting a team at RCA signing Artists such as Christina Aguilera, Tyrese Gibson and Chantay Savage also, with success of Label mates like SWV, Omar and Brooklyn Funk Essentials. Christopher Pringle felt that it was time to change the name of the company to “Strong Arm Entertainment.” The vision of Strong Arm Entertainment is a full service company that catered to small and large businesses – A one stop shop. Christopher Pringle along with his brother Pastor Jason Hamilton created the Urban Outreach part of the business to be more involved in the community both locally and nationally. Strong Arm Entertainment is committed to producing great Artists and music and constructing brands that are not afraid of the urban community. The concept and slogan of Strong Arm Entertainment is Strap4life reached more than just records. It was very instrumental in setting up Coca Cola with the first minority vendor; “Street Teams” and the “Obey Your Thirst” campaign which supported Hip Hop to the highest degree and set off the term Cross Branding and Micro Marketing and utilized “Street Teams” to make marketing reps across the globe. Christopher Pringle began consulting his network, yielding his best guest to assist in the marketing and programming of the Hip Hop National Movement.

Dj Corner With DJ Nothing Nice The GRIND of Today’s Artist. Working with today’s artist over the globe, I’ve found that they really do want the truth about the industry and what it can offer. They want to know what it takes to make it but may not know how to get to the level to get it. The questions I constantly ask are: Do you want to be a one hit wonder? What level of commitment and grind will you bring? Where do you see yourself within 5 to 10 years? The responses are always positive but normally in the same arena of “I want to get on the radio”. I share with artists what it takes to be taken serious about their music because I’ve come to learn the success process. The success process requires three keys : Communication, Commitment and Consistency. Peeping a little knowledge on the LEGAL part of the business has opened some eyes of a greater grind on the part of the artist. Most artist know nothing about the legal side. Letting them know about copyrighting their music; not only copyrights but BDS or MEDIABASED registered, INVESTING in themselves from cds, promotions, t-shirts, booking their OWN shows and traveling to other cities, states and even countries can help them grow and develop. New experiences help the artist evolve to level as a professional artist. As a 704dj, I encourage artists to read books and network in different Genuine Artist Conferences that really teach artist development. Conferences and businesses that really are concerned about you learning how to get your music heard and taken seriously. Some artist run into SHARKS of the industry, promising this or that and not coming through. I represent the 704dj Family that “BREAK RECORDS LIKE A DJ IS SUPPOSE TO”. 704dj’s CAN REALLY PUSH YOUR MUSIC ON A WORLD WIDE SCALE.

Since at the age of 5, Kayo quickly shown an interest in music. From performing in front of close friends and relatives to local school talent shows and church related performances. Kayo has already developed a fan base as well as harnessed an understanding of her craft where most artists still take years to develop. "I like Keisha Cole, Ludacris, and Chris Brown. They're just a few of the artists that sing with sincerity, realness, and its relative." says Kayo. She has been compared to Lil mama on many occasions, yet her brand of music is already acknowledged as trend setting which is normal for an artist who is ahead of their time. Her lyrics possess somewhat of an arrogant disposition but yet she continues to charm with her clever word play and crafty metaphors. "Obviously when listening to her rhyme, you can tell right away this young lady is extremely intelligent as well as a gifted artist." says Legend, one of the many producers who witnessed the growth of her talent as it developed over time. Ironically, she has managed to find the right kind of sound that allows you to journey through her world that many would consider to be their own personal theme of music. Currently still in her teens, Kayo is already proving to many that her talent is still growing, and its incredible. With an array of multi-talented song writers, and producers, including her own material. Her songs speaks the language of today's youth without dumbing down to the typical stereotypes. Interestingly enough, she has already developed a new market on capitalizing her craft. She has been able to perform in many large venues unlike a lot of our current, young performers whose musical content hinders them from gaining exposure due to their sometimes negative messages, and explicit lyrical content. In summary, Kayo is by far on a path to success and if she continues at this pace, she is showing a promising future.

Matthew West Songwriters are known to be an introspective breed whose personal experiences shape their music, and over the years Matthew West has definitely plumbed the depths of his soul for sweet inspiration. Yet on his new album, West looked to his audience to provide grist for his creative mill. The result is The Story of Your Life, a spectacular body of work that tackles a diverse array of real life subject matter and finds West exploring tender territory rarely tapped in contemporary pop music. “I know how to write songs about my life, my experiences and my journey, my faith and my love,” West says. “Yet along comes an idea for a record called ‘Story of Your Life’ and instead of writing what I know and writing songs about my life, the idea is to turn the microphone around to the people who listen to my music. I wanted them to send me their stories.”. After going through career-threatening vocal surgery in May 2007, the singer/songwriter re-emerged in early 2008 with the appropriately titled album Something to Say, serving up such memorable hits as “You Are Everything” and “The Motions.”
In addition to writing songs that have made him a Dove Award nominated artist in the Christian market, West’s songwriting prowess has also earned him the respect of artists in other musical genres. His songs have been recorded by multi-platinum country trio Rascal Flatts and other country artists such as JoDee Messina, Steel Magnolia and Billy Ray Cyrus. West’s songs have also been cut by other Christian artists, including Michael W. Smith, Mark Schultz, Mandisa, Jump5, Sara Groves, Joy Williams, Salvador, Natalie Grant, PureNRG and Point of Grace. “This record has changed me. I look at the world in a different way. The words of ‘My Little World’ are how it’s changed me. It’s not about me and that’s the irony of this record is that I’ve never been so excited about a record and it’s not about me. I’m the singer and the messenger and I connect with these songs, and it fires me up.”.

HHNR Pastor Jason Hamilton
Pastor Jason Hamilton was born on May 21st 1977 in Doctor’s General Hospital in Plantation, Florida. Though Hamilton lived in California, New York, Tennessee and Jamaica. With each travel came a new experience and with each experience he learned new things and lesions that would prepare him for what was to come. During his early years he proved to be gifted both academically and spiritually. His natural inquisitiveness and his interest in computers led him to excel in elementary school. After scoring in the top 10 percentile of students in the state Florida he was selected to participate in the state’s gifted program. Pastor Jason Hamilton was also very rooted in the church. At the tender age of 10 he began preaching the word of God. He was also a youth minister at the First Baptist Church of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. His most memorable experience was at the tender age of ten he was given the opportunity to preach before the entire youth congregation on Youth Day – a sermon entitled ‘Did David let David stop him?” After delivering the message God moved 25 young people to make a commitment to Christ. Shortly after that Pastor Jason Hamilton was moved to a new city where he was separated from the church. This separation from church would prove to be a turning point in his life. One year after living in a new place with new peers and a separation from the church he found himself deeply submerged into drugs, gangs, and gang related violence. Being a loyal member of his gang for over five years he reaped the rewards – two gun shot wounds, four stab wounds, fights too many to remember and an event that would forever change his life – he was arrested. The arrest led him to be incarcerated in a federal penitentiary where he was left to reconsider his choices and evaluate his position in life. After his release from prison he vowed never to return. With a new insight on life Pastor Jason Hamilton returned to school and received his Associates in Business Management from the University of Phoenix. He then enrolled in Full Sail University where he obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in Studio Engineering. It was after this he them focused his mind on achieving the call that God placed on his life at the early age of ten which was to preach and teach the gospel. Pastor Jason Hamilton along with his older brother Christopher Pringle embarked upon an entrepreneurial endeavor. Together they possessed over 25 years of experience in broadcasting, entertainment marketing, networking, management, promotions and production which became Strong Arm Entertainment LLC. Pastor Jason Hamilton was established as Minister of Outreach at Amazing Grace International Church of God in Christ (C.O.G.I.C.), Kansas City, Kansas and under the leadership and grooming of Dr. Vernard Johnson. There he served actively in the community while pursuing ordination as an Elder by the Church of God in Christ (C.O.G.I.C.). After being ordained an Elder, Pastor Jason Hamilton began working on his vision to unite the church with the streets. The first effort developed by Pastor Jason Hamilton was a non profit group called Strong Arm Urban Outreach which focused on bringing the word of God. Rather than using religious concepts of God, he introduced a bible centered prologue and a relationship with God. He diligently worked on meeting the needs of those living in some of the most economically challenged communities throughout the country – overseeing efforts such as food, clothing distribution, hygiene giveaways, blankets during the winter, shelter referrals, medical referrals and assistance. Also being a part of the hip hop generation it was easy to infuse the word of God into an already moving wave of energy. With this Pastor Jason Hamilton hoped that God’s word would be heard, lives touched and ultimately souls saved. This led Pastor Jason Hamilton to commence working in a non-denominational church. Out of his endeavor came a vision from God to build a church, not just of brick and mortar; that in itself is not a church, instead join together a body of believers; the true church of God – a congregation. While seeking ways to birthing his vision, God allowed Pastor Jason Hamilton to discover a common thread unifying all people. The common thread was a “moment.” The common factor of all things is a moment in time – where we either make a positive decision or negative one. It is from that flash we travel the course of things based on and in response to that moment. The revelation was created from the line, “One moment in faith can change your eternity.” With that the movement was born under the name, ‘Anointed Moments in Faith Ministries Church’, where Pastor Jason Hamilton serves as senior Pastor. Pastor Jason Hamilton also serves as Associate Pastor at Patmos Life Center Ministries Church in Kansas City, Kansas under the leadership of senior Pastor L.C. Jenkins. Pastor Jason Hamilton, while praying and fasting, watched for signs of a movement. Christopher Pringle set up a conference call with DON JR – CEO of Impressive Concepts, Inc. Pastor Jason Hamilton, praising God, understood the use of Hip Hop National Radio Conference Call and Feedback line as an instrument to continue to touch lives and shed light where there is darkness in the entertainment industry. Being a true man of God, Pastor Jason Hamilton began conducting the opening and closing prayer with each conference call. Guests were surprised that a full time Pastor was offering the invocation on every conference call and Pastor Jason Hamilton felt right at home with the Hip Hop National family. God continued to stir and reveal more of a vision where Pastor Jason Hamilton would play a key role in divulging the word of God to all followers of the movement. A special edition of Hip Hop National Programming has been called, “Winning on Wednesday” – The Gospel Get Down. It had a huge turnout. It was so great that the birth of “Soul Saving Sunday” came about. Here Pastor Jason Hamilton has a chance to bring the word of God to people in the comforts of their own homes. Presently Pastor Jason Hamilton serves as Hip Hop National’s own Pastor and online personality. Pastor Jason Hamilton continues to encourage, inspire, educate and propel the children of God to greatness!

Myra Morris CEO of HipHopNational Magazine was born in Dallas, Texas in 1966. Myra always had many career aspirations, with acting and music being a few of them. She finally decided to attend Mountain View and El Centro Community Colleges in Dallas, Texas to pursue degrees in Accounting and Business Management. Although Myra participated in church plays and other productions, she never considered being in front of the camera. While performing at North Park Mall for Christmas in 1996, the Miracle Revival Center –Move of God Church Choir (Myra’s choir) was approached to sing on the TV show “Texas Walker Ranger” as backup for Kyla Pratt in her television debut. Myra and the MRC Choir also performed as the feature choir for a Paul Winfield episode, and had the pleasure of working with Chuck Norris, Margaret Avery, Stoney Jackson, John Amos & others. From 1996-1999, opportunity presented itself for Myra to continue to work with “Texas Walker Ranger” and “Son’s of Thunder” TV shows. In March of 2010, Myra landed a part in a local play called “Torn Between 2 Lives” directed by Snoop Robinson, and was privileged to work with Yarbrough and Peoples, Dave Hollister, Keith Douglas and others. In the summer of 2010, Myra embarked upon a new direction. She delved into the music industry. In a very short time, she has made enough of an impact on the industry to have been selected as one of the directors for the 2011 Texas Urban Music Summit that will be held in Houston, Texas. In addition, her company, FMB Enterprise, was selected as a candidate to provide entertainment for the 2011 Super Bowl. She currently manages the music careers of Simply Pannell, a Sexy, Suave R&B Singer and Sassy T, a Soul Diva Singer for the Real Woman. She newly acquired a managing position with Andrae Alexander who have played for people like Patti LaBelle, Former President Bill Clinton, The Roots, Chrissette Michelle, Raheem DeVaughn, Erykah Badu and many more. www.andraealexander.com Push2Play Magazine was founded to help clients development their business skills in the music industry. The Entertainers were lacking resources for their own craft and Myra thought she could assist. In search of information to supply her magazine, Myra was told about HipHop National Radio and tuned in, more than once. After gaining a great deal of knowledge from the panelists and guests on the show, Myra spoke with CEO Al “PoeEtic” and the “MERGER” began shortly after. Push2Play Magazine changed it’s name to HipHop National Magazine and more so than ever— HHNMagazine CATERS TO THE NEEDS OF THE ARTIST. www.hiphopnational.com On an everyday note, Myra is CEO of Forever Memory Blankets and partnered with Already Gear LLC. Since busy people stay busy, she also volunteers her time giving back as Founder of The Brandi Foundation, Board Member of Park South YMCA and former National Board AVP for Urban Financial Services Coalition.
To fully Engage in Understanding the Power of Abundance Everything you do is for the purpose of gaining abundance. Living in abundance is not selfish; it is a part of your journey on earth. You are here living in the physical to master the qualities that are needed to thrive in abundance. And shelter, food and security are a necessary part of your journey. Many give up on creating abundance and learn to live a life below the radar of fulfillment, because what they desire to produce does not appear. Letâ€™s explore the process of abundance. You are constantly producing in your life with every thought that you chronically think and with every action that is inspired by thought. So when you are thinking that an endeavor will not work out or you are entertaining other negative thoughts, you are producing unintentional results of a negative outcome that you have dictated with those negative thoughts. Now abundance is a GOD principle of thinking about the joy you are experiencing with that thing, place or person in your life. (The added bonus is you do not have to physically experience what you are joyous about; you can simply feel the joy in your mind, body and spirit and produce the desired results.) The longer you hold your thought in an authentic positive manner and the more you are in touch with your feelings as you think that thought, the easier and speedier the thought materializes just as you intended. This is not presto and magic. This is using what every person has been given as a birthright: the power to create by choosing positive thought. To fully engage in understanding the power of abundance, I can share with you that for several years I have sought to interview the best metaphysicians, healers, authors, faith speakers and those who live a life of joy and fulfillment, all to learn more of what I desire to produce in my life, abundance. This month I have interviewed for the Valder Beebe Show, Joe Vitale, author and metaphysician featured on the movie The Secret. We spoke concerning his new book, The Awakening Course: The Secret To Solving All Problems. After reading it completely, I highly recommend The Awakening Course. I have found Joe Vitale to be an authentic soul teacher, and The Awakening Course will do what its title states: it will awaken you. Valder Beebe hosts The Valder Beebe Show, a 21st century spiritual talk show broadcast on KKVI Radio FM 89.9/95.9, RhythmFlowRadio.net and Pod Cast on valderbeebeshow.com.

James and Valder Beebe We love the power of love in our 26-year marriage journey. Believing that GOD is the greatest power (LOVE) we married Valentine’s Day 1985. This once-in-a-lifetime union has been profiled in various magazines, including Essence Magazine, numerous newspapers and web sites. James the romantic, wrote our wedding vows: “I say these vows once and only once to thee. Be My Love, My Life, My Partner in Productivity (PIP Production).” As we have taken on the adventures of life, we have stood on the foundation of our belief in GOD; created four children; had 26 annual love celebrations; created our company, PIP Production; managed our individual careers and shared our collective paths of success as husband and wife and a family. I take you to be my beloved, to love GOD, you and our family. To honor you, to treasure you, to be at your side in the good times, and in the bad, and to love and cherish you always. I promise you this from my heart and soul, for all the days of my life. Each couple profiled in The 2012 Great Annual "I'm In Love" Search exemplifies the power of being in love and being married, as they have committed before GOD, each other and society. Bob & Sylvia Klinger We will celebrate 20 years of marriage on June 11, 2011. We pray together frequently during the day, and we compliment each other often. We respect each other at all times and say, “I love you” a lot. We communicate constantly – it’s like having a lifeline between us. We admire each other very much. We both love the Lord and each other with all our heart, spirit and body.

"I'm In Love" Search continued from page 40 Mayor Ronald and Peggy Jones During our 44 years of marriage, we can truly say that I Corinthians 13:4-7 has been our model. Love is patient, love is kind, and is not jealous... We have found marriage to be like a stew that is blended and simmered over a lifetime. Our “marriage stew” has the components of love, respect, trust, adoration, communication and commitment. All of these components are important, but the key ingredient is commitment. You must be committed to Christ, committed to each other, and committed to the marriage. Selfless love is what we share and we are best friends. We enjoy being together and doing things together. Our joy is making sure that each other’s needs are met while encouraging, affirming and supporting each other as we fulfill God’s purpose for our lives. We are thankful to God for this perfect union, for he has sustained us through the vicissitudes of life. Knowing that God is love helps us know how to sacrifice, forgive, comfort and care for each other. We feel truly blessed that God ordained the marriage that we both dreamed about. And, we are doubly blessed that He has sustained our marriage by giving us two sons, two daughters-in-law, and eight grandchildren. We are as much in love today as the day we got married. Ray & Pamela Baker My husband, Ray, and I met 30 years ago at a Martin Luther King Day church program. He played the sax and I read a poem. It was in my first year of college at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas, and he was a Manhattan native home for the weekend. We had a long-distance relationship during that time, and we would write each other about every week. After two years, we decided we really liked each other and married in 1983. My husband is a music producer, jazz sax player and pianist. We perform and co-write contemporary Christian and jazz music. In 1994 my husband produced one of his first jazz CDs called Sweet Honey. He dedicated the CD to me because my name, Pamela, means, “all honey.” My husband and I minister to couples in prison during weekend marriage retreats a couple of times a year. We have been married for 27 years and can truly say that we love being with each other. Keith & Lorraine Brock My husband and I are an all-American couple. Ours is a modern love story entwined with an old-fashioned fairy tale. Our parents have each been married to the same person for over fifty years and have mirrored for us what lasting commitment looks like. Married before we had children, I was a teenage bride who adored her husband, and still does almost 23 years later. We still enjoy date nights, late night rendezvous in the hot tub, and a marriage that is envied by many. First and foremost, the reason for the success of our marriage is the undying truths that are held in God’s word (The Bible). These truths on how a committed relationship is to work and function has given our marriage a firm foundation on which to stand.

Being Happy Alone is a Joke Me, Myself and I When it’s just me I can look and go where I want I can say and do the things I like When I’m by myself… I can be me I can look like me, whether I comb my hair or not I can be content with every curve or blemish when I look in the mirror I can enjoy being by myself But because I am not happy alone I have somewhat of a problem I enjoy conversation, debate and depth of intellect but I can’t get this alone I enjoy laughing but you can laugh only so much with yourself, with memories and at home alone I am more in-depth than Me and Myself I am a thinker I am a lover of life I’m inquisitive I’m adaptable I’m a chameleon as well I stand up to every God given situation I’m Me and no man is an island Man might say he is but no man wants to really stand alone I just want to be ME
