Dorinda Clark-Cole: As I was working on the project, I thought about how I've made it through the last year of my life. I have survived through it all. I wanted people to know that they can survive as well. No matter what has happened they can make it and all things are possible with God. If I can do it, they certainly can.

GOSPELflava.com: As you continue to build as an artist and business woman, what do you want your legacy to be?

Dorinda Clark-Cole: I want people to know that I stand for Jesus Christ. I want them to look at me as a role model and know that it is possible for them to achieve their dreams. It's all about being in the right place at the right time, and allowing God to use you and let your gifts flourish. All of my current ventures were the result of being available for God to use me and taking advantage of the right opportunities. I want people to know that they can do it to, in whatever areas God has truly gifted them in.
