Keepin it real for Jesus!!!
I was born and
raised in Newark, NJ and have been in the music business for over 15 years as both a DJ
and MC. In the eighties I was into the club scene at places like Zanzibar, Magoos,
the Tunnel, the Palladium and the Paradise Garage. For my first venture in the
business, I started out carrying records for my good friend DJ Curt Gilmore at a weekly
after work party at a place called Ruebens in Newark. I then joined him in the
mobile DJ business and learned to DJ while working as an MC with Curt and DJs Will
Gibbs, Charles Gatling, Sharif Foster and Naim Johnson. I have played at more
weddings, birthday parties and celebrations than I can remember.
I have been a
member of St. James AME church in Newark, NJ since I was 13 but my life changed when I was
saved and accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior in 1998 under Rev Dr William D
God has truly
changed my life and he changed my music shortly after I was saved. My Youth Ministry
had a vision to start having Youth church services. We held services in St James
prep school located behind the church. Since I had a sound system I provided the
music and started my journey as a Gospel DJ. One of the parents at the church
recommended me for the job at Branch Brook Park Roller Skating when they decided to go in
a different direction with their Gospel night. I have been there ever since and I
took on the name one of the kids gave me D- REAL (Thanks Chaz!).
I have been
blessed with many opportunities as a Gospel DJ. I have DJd for Club Praize,
the North Jersey AME YPD (Young Peoples Division) conference and picnic just to name a

all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.
