“The Most Important Thing Is the Story Not The Script, And That’s The Gift Of God. Great Men Never Require Experiences. A Great Man is Hard On Himself, A small man is hard on others. This is a story you need to know, A story That Has Never Been Told. A life of a man that is pure as Gold. A man who fought for the masses, A man a who sacrificed himself for the masses. A man who chose God’s way over man’s dictations. He came, he saw, He conquered, ladies and gentlemen, without further i do,i introduce THE GIFT OF GOD ALBUM.”
