Every social class, every denomination.  What if we bring Him the thing that pleases Him most– our unity,” implores Michael. “We may each have different stories, and skin, and songs, but we all share His same Spirit.  For me, though, music is always my first creative outlet,” he clarifies. “Forever, until the world ends, music is the most powerful language there is.”
