I grew up when Diff'rent Strokes was a popular television show. That's no big deal unless your last name is Willis. To this day I still hear those famous words popularized by Arnold: "Whatchu talkin bout Willis?" Usually they are uttered by someone looking at me as though I may have never heard it before. Yeah, right! Well this blog is what I (Willis) am talkin bout...my thoughts, observations & opinions. Enjoy...

Tonja Rose

I was very pleasently surprised when Tonja Rose posted a comment here recently. Tonja & her husband Ward were an important part of a new church work here in Newport News over a decade ago. They eventually headed off to Nashville...Tonja is an exceptionally talented song writer, performer & singer. I'll always remember Tonja singing at my wedding. She was (and still is) so talented I knew I wanted her to sing. My late father used love whenever Tonja would sing a solo in church. Dad wasn't much on the "new music" back then but he always loved to hear Tonja sing regardless of the song. Her powerful voice and delivery would always captivate the crowd. Check out Tonja on mypace.
