Sitting in meetings with Stephen Hill, BET's VP of Music, he spoke of a vision for a show where artists walked through their careers, using their music videos as the visual landmarks to talk about what the journey was like for them at the time. As a producer, I knew each of these videos intimately, putting them into show rotation for years, and because I have a "penchant" for details (The Virgo in me). So without the videos but armed with finite and meticulous details about the artist and each clip, we had a conversation where they "testified" about their lives, their journeys and what it took to be where they are today. That was the impetus of "TESTIMONY," which went on to include my productions of SADE, MARIAH CAREY, MARY J. BLIGE, BABYFACE, BUSTA RHYMES AND DMX. Though I didn't produce the episodes, JANET JACKSON, EMINEM and others were also featured.
