It is always wonderful to talk to people you have never met and feel the anointing on their life and hear it in their story. Speak Life is just that, talented, anointed and they walk it out everyday and live what they sing about. I recently caught up with them to find out a little more about them and to go behind the music of this power house group.
I know you will enjoy this interview but mostly, I know you will love their ministry!
So let’s find out what Speak Life is all about, right here on Real Talk with Roderick!
It gives me great honor and I count it a blessing to speak with none other than gospel recording artist Todd Dulaney! He shares and opens up about how he got started in the music industry as what I call one of it’s most successful newest artist.
What you may not know about Todd is that quit professional sports to pursue the calling of music ministry in his life. We will talk about which sport that is and how all of this came about.
Todd is currently under the wings and guidance of the gospel industry’s most influential promoter/manager Apostle Veryl Howard!

Get ready to laugh as we interview gospel comedienne Miz-T and get up close and personal about how she got started.
Where ever there are ears to hear, and a sound system to project her voice, MizT has been bringing the laughter to folks in all sorts of venues, like churches and banquets. And she does it in a clean, non-profane manner…pleasing to audiences of all ages — from kids to senior citizens. As an entertainer MizT is a triple threat; aside from her comedy, she’s also a singer with a powerful voice, along with being an accomplished emcee (MC). When she’s not captivating audiences, MizT is a devoted and doting mother and grandmother. It seems performing was pre-ordained for the Austin, Texas native whose real name is Tranea (Tra-NAY) Prosser. Both her mom and dad were singers of some note…with her late father, Harvey Prosser, being a member of the Soul Savers quartet. Tranea has sung in church choirs for most of life…and is presently a member at Freedom Home Baptist Church in Austin.
When asked about her style of comedy, Tranea says; “Its rated ‘I’ for Infectious and for Innocence.” As for a personal rating…MizT would have to be rated ‘H’ for Humble and ‘G’ for Grateful: “I’ve been given a great gift by GOD, it’s an honor and a joy to share it. I thank GOD for allowing me to minister to folks with my gifts of singing and comedy,” says the extraordinarily talented and unforgettable MizT.

We interview Psalmist Doris Stokes to get up close and personal about who she is and how she got started.
Psalmist Doris Stokes comes out strong and powerful with her DEBUT “live” solo effort…can you say SOPRANO?! This project highlights another one of Doris’ strong areas of Anointing: songwriting, where she pens about HALF of this project’s 15 tracks. Produced by herself and the awesome Minister Keith Leak (also a Dayton, Ohio native)“Praise & Worship…Unleashed!” places you smack in the middle of a worship experience and praise encounter few are able to translate through a “live” recording. Doris is a TOTAL package Gospel artist: she’s anointed to sing vocally, a producer, a songwriter and a Prophetic teacher/speaker of the Gospel. You can’t go wrong with this one; a MUST HAVE for ALL praise & worship lovers!

Listen in as we get up close and personal with gospel recording artist Marjane on NiaRadioNetwork.com!
Up-and-coming gospel artist Marjané(pronounced Mar-janay) has been singing since age 2, with an upbringing in the Baptist church. Aware of her talent, she put church on the backburner as she sought other avenues toward the musical career she’d imagined. Segueing from the church to R&B showcases, Marjané soon realized that there was a greater focus on her outward appearance rather than her voice. Realizing that her desire was “to sing, not sell sex,” Marjané rededicated her life to Christ. Still, it was not easy transitioning from the secular lifestyle to the world of gospel. “Part of me wanted God, and part of me wanted to keep my old ways,” says Marjané. “It took knowing God’s word and prayer to show that I could not have both.”
Pushing forward, Marjané rediscovered her relationship with God through her writing. Self-released in July of 2007, her first album, “Keys to My Heart,” originated as a love letter back to God where “you’ll experience and hear the intimate relationship I have with Christ.” Standout tracks include “Appreciate Each Other,” a clear representation of Marjané’s vocal strength and range, and “Now I Believe,” a moving ballad that talks about the struggle of trying to do it on your own, reminding us that all you have to do is trust in God. The up-tempo, “Clap Your Hands” recognizes that God is there in the good and bad times and He deserves all the praise.
