“Tony Dickerson is gifted and crafted to hear God and create amazing stories of song to inspire and encourage generations,” says Tracy Bethea, 2X Stellar Award-winning Radio Announcer of The Year, Hallelujah 95.7 FM Memphis. “His songwriting talent has made and will continue to make a difference to the world.”
“When it comes to writing music, Tony is very diverse. From Gospel to R&B, Tony presents feel-good music that makes you feel happy on the inside,” states Shontelle Norman-Beatty, Dare Records recording artist.
