Daniell, as a teen, also organized an annual Gospel musical workshop event in Kilgore, TX called Praise Fest, involving many youths from the area churches. Today Daniell is a licensed minister and serves as the Youth Director, Sunday School Teacher, and Worship Leader at his family church.

As the Visionary and founder of this organization, Daniell Kenney hopes to inspire, promote, encourage, through the performing arts while cultivating the passion and interest of youth to pursue careers in engineering, technology, mathematics and science fields. Daniell believes, creating safe environments that foster project learning will allow youths to solve highly complex problems that requires students to have both fundamental skills (reading, writing, and math) and 21st century skills (teamwork, problem solving, research gathering, time management, information synthesizing, utilizing high tech tools). With this method of teaching, students will be in control of the learning process, directing and managing, while advancing the mind through realistic educational experiences.

The music and entertainment industry is full of executives with various titles, roles, accomplishments and backgrounds. But some individuals have inspiring and even amazing stories about their journey to success. One said story of accomplishment is that of Clive Anthony Ennis.

Born and raised in Jamaica, Ennis began his journey in faith-based entertainment in 2006 as a business manager for a local gospel group. Ennis was a full time sales executive with a retail company and had no real aspirations for a career in music and entertainment beyond his role as worship leader at his church. That quickly began to change as a deep rooted passion for gospel music began to develop and instill in him a vision to take gospel music around the world.
Ennis has displayed a level of excellence and integrity with his company as well as exhibiting continued growth and profitability.
