32 year-old singer/songwriter Cameo Profit is a self-described “church boy." Growing up in the Church of God in Christ in Wichita, he began playing the drums at the age of two, he eventually learned the piano and started directing church choirs. Profit has a new CD called Speak To Your Day. KMUW’s Carla Eckels talks with Profit about his life in music, which started in church...
“It was just something amazing to see. The choir was 50 strong and every Sunday was like a concert,” Cameo Profit remembers. “I mean we literally did 6 selections every Sunday, it was so huge! So I knew as a child - that was what I was going to do.”
Cameo Profit is Minister of Music at St. Mark Cathedral Church of God in Christ in Wichita.
Listen to Speak To Your Day below:
"Our words have power and so if you get up in the morning and say you can’t -- you never will," Profit explains the idea behind the song, Speak To Your Day.
"So when you get up and say it’s going to be a good day today, it’s going to be a great day, it’s going to be a blessed day, it's my kind of day. It’s kind of affirming that no matter what happens, you’re going to have peace throughout your whole day because no one can mess up your day. You choose what you want to listen to. You choose what you want to accept so that’s what the song is about: Speaking to your day as God has given us power to do."
