“Lift Every Voice” host Coco Brother will get the chance to have a personal interview with Michael Vick. Since “The Michael Vick Project” started, things have definitely heated up again for Mike as the protests pour in.
Despite how you may feel about the dogfighting controversy, we can be sure that Coco Brother will approach this from a spiritual side and pull out some real answers. It’s been a rough road for Michael Vick, and he has a lot to lift his voice about.
Since his involvement in dogfighting lasted for many years, it’s hard for many people to forgive Mike. It wasn’t like it was one incident. For years, he was raising living things to exist solely for violence and death.
After serving time, going into bankruptcy and enduring public persecution, some people think enough is enough and that it’s time for Mike to be forgiven. Anyone can change if they want.
Mike’s story reminds me of many personal struggles that are in the Bible. Saul comes to mind. Is Mike a modern-day Saul? If I recall correctly, Saul persecuted Christians before joining them. Now we see Mike, a former dogfighter, standing alongside The Humane Society.
Maybe he is, maybe he’s not, but I look forward to how Coco Brother will handle one of the more controversial figures he’s had to deal with.

We know that Sunday is Valentine’s Day and you probably want to snuggle up with your loved one. But it’s also still Black History Month and we’re honoring all of our Black icons and leaders.
Since you probably won’t get into the hearts and Cupid’s arrows until later in the day, check out “Lift Every Voice” in the morning. No doubt, you’ve heard of Maya Angelou, probably because she’s one of the most renowned authors of our time. Aside from the poems that have made her famous, you might not know that she’s written, directed and acted in plays and movies and worked as a civil rights activist.
Now Coco Brother gets the chance to sit down and talk to this literary legend. We’ve read (or heard someone recite) her work, but now we get to hear her words.

Everyone knows Mathew Knowles as the father of one of the most recognizable women on the planet. You may not have heard of his record label, Spirit Rising Music, or some of the other artists he’s worked with, such as Brian Courtney Wilson.
Although labeled a Gospel music artist, Brian hopes his music can go further under Mr. Knowles imprint: “It seemed like a good fit for me. It’s a place where I can do more than just church music: music for the world that’s rooted in the church.”
To hear more from this artist on the rise, be sure to catch him on Lift Every Voice, this Sunday, November 29 at 10AM/9C. Hear a song from his album now.

Tune in to “Lift Every Voice,” Sunday at 10AM/9C for an exclusive interview with Toya.
Toya opened up her life to the world on “Tiny & Toya.” We saw her struggle with her relationship with her mother, support her friend Tiny during a tough time, secure a book deal and raise her daughter, Reginae Carter. She definitely proved that she was more than just a rapper’s “baby mama.”
This Sunday, Toya will reveal her personal feelings when she sits down to talk to Coco Brother. One of the hot topics they discuss is her feelings about her marriage to Lil Wayne.
