Off to CNN

Published on September 2, 2005

I took a nap after coming from the CBS interview and then I went to run errands. After I ran errands I had about an hour to prepare for the CNN interview. My ride arrived to pick me up for the interview—the first thing the driver says to me is the address is ” —-”, and I thought “OK, does he know where he’s going?” I said, “We’re going to CNN, wherever that is, that’s where we need to go.”

When we got there, the building didn’t say “CNN”, but when I got out of the car and woman came to greet me with a warm smile and she says we had the right place. She introduced herself and said her name was Mary and took me to the ‘green room’. Then, a man and a woman came in to meet me, and when I got up to go meet them and looked at the man, I started screaming.

The man, (his name is Mr. Doty) looked just like Nigel from American Idol! He started laughing and Mary who greeted me said “Oh Lord you do look like him!”. Mr. Doty introduced me to the woman, Mrs. Doty, who was his mother. I kept looking at Mr. Doty for a long time saying, “You’re not Mr. Doty, you’re Nigel.” and he just laughed and finally says ok. I said, “I have to get a picture of you all”, so I took a picture of Mary, Mr. Doty and Mrs. Doty. Check it out below.

These are the people from CNN.  Mr. Doty, in the middle, looks like Nigel!

After that, we talked for a while, shared laughter and then it was time for my CNN interview –once again in front of the camera , I love it! We did it and I was so excited because I got to talk to my friends at Showbiz Tonight again.

After the interview, the driver took me back home to my brother’s house and I got to sit down and eat some ice cream (which is a total no-no for me b/c singers aren’t supposed to eat ice cream… or birthday cake. ) No cake , no sugar, nothing dairy, We’re just supposed to starve! Hahaha.

But it’s ok, I enjoyed my ice cream and prepared myself for the next venture. Tomorrow it’s Memphis —get ready, stay tuned, you don’t want to miss this!
God bless you.

Going to CBS

Published on

I woke up at 4 o clock this morning. Off to the CBS interview in Ft. Worth TX. I drove my car and got lost and after I went around in circles about 3 times and paid the toll about 3 times which cost a total of $2.50(!). On the way to the CBS studio, I put on my Daryl Coley CD, hoping that I would make it to the studio in time. I kind of started speeding a little bit, but then the Word came to me:


“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything through prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, make your requests known unto God”

So I immediately said, “Lord, thank you for letting me see another day and please let me make it to this place in time for the interview so I don’t get in trouble for missing it.” Ha Ha .

I finally arrived at the CBS studios, the guard greeted me at the door, I expected a warm greeting, but he didn’t know who I was at first, so I had to explain that I was there for an interview with CBS and he then said “Oh, ok” and greeted me with a warm smile and escorted me to the ‘green room’. After waiting in the green room a bit, finally it was time for me to do the interview.

A lady (I can’t remember her name) came to the door to bring me to the interview, she said “Hello, how are you?” and I said, “I’m fine. You know what, it’s real early, but it’s ok because this is the day that the Lord has made and I will rejoice and be glad in it.” and she lifted her hands in the air and said “You know what? I needed that this morning!” and I said, “You know what, we definitely need to be thankful for everything –the little things because it could be us down at the Superdome with no food, no water, no shelter, no clothes. But we are here in the land of the living and that is something to be thankful for.” And she said, “Yes Lord!” And I said, “Yes Lord!”

I told her, “Don’t start nothing and it won’t be nothing, because I’ll shout on the TV!” and we both laughed.

Next thing I know, I was in the chair talking to Mr. Doug and we pretty much had a conversation about how I was feeling right now, being a victim of the Katrina catastrophe. I told him, “Well, words cannot express what the people in New Orleans. are going through and what my family is going through, you can only live it to get the full effect. But”, I said, “My family is doing a lot of praying for each other and other families that they will successfully come out and survive this tragic moment.”

Well, I want to conclude by saying a bit about that eye in the middle of a hurricane and a tornado. You will find that in the middle of both of them, there is a stillness and a peace with no action taking place —there’s just calm and peace in the eye of hurricanes and tornadoes and right now, even though there is corruption all around, I have found God right in the eye of this hurricane. And He has given my family a sense of peace and comfort through all of this and I want to encourage you all that even in the midst of your spiritual hurricane, there is peace. If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you can speak to the winds and the waves and they would have to calm down. So don’t worry about what you’re going through, a brighter day is on the way.

God bless you! Remember, the Katrina Appeal page is here.


Introduction

Published on September 1, 2005

Hello to the GOSPELflava.com family and friends. It is an honor to be able to provide you with my diary and share with you exclusively what’s going on with me, George Huff. I hope that you are blessed and inspired and touched in some way about how the Lord is working and moving in my life.

So, let’s talk.

Tonight I found out different things I have to do tomorrow. I also prayed with several friends about the state of what’s going on concerning Hurricane Katrina. I also talked with some friends about how we can help better the situation and people with food, clothing and shelter because I think that it’s very important. Even though I am a victim myself, I think it is also important that we see the need of others and pull together and help each other out.
