Comments and Inboxes showed a promising impact for the new piece which uses Dr. Dre’s Beats as a platform to inspire the world to Never Give Up.

The piece travels back in time through Dre’s journey as a Hip Hop Mogul to becoming a billionaire while everyone to keep sacrificing and believing because you never know what day it’s going to pay off.

New Video traces Ro’s Spiritual Roots

RovideoshotProworks Productions filmed my latest video, “Move Of Your Glory”. The video is set in the city where I grew up… Monroe, LA. I haven’t lived there in almost 20 years but it was a pleasure to give back to my birthplace. The video was shot on location at Carroll High School, which is the oldest black High School in the city and at one time was the only school blacks could attend. The school carries a great Louisiana Legacy and is the landmark of Black North Louisiana History.

Ro honored by Saints & Pelicans Staff

Hero44 at Saints HeadquartersIf you ever visit New Orleans you will instantly realize how strong the city stands behind it’s Professional Sports Teams. The New Orleans Saints NFL Team and the New Orleans Pelicans NBA Team are both owned by billionaire Tom Benson. The staffs work together to promote the teams but to also unite the city. Both teams host and sponsor many community events throughout the year as an effort to continue a healthy relationship between the City and the Franchises. I have been fortunate to do a lot of outreach through the vehicles of Tom Benson’s teams and it is an honor working with such devoted and passionate people. Recently, I was called to the office and the staff presented me with an autographed Saints Football and an autographed Pelicans football. I am still humbled by the the kindness I was shown and I am eager to continue helping the franchises next season.
