Introduction

Monica Johnson - GFCKidsMy name is Monica Sharee Johnson Spencer. Generation for Creation, a 501 c 3 not-for-profit visual and performing arts organization that has been operating since April 10, 2001. We operate year round providing entertainment by local young talented artists of all stages from beginners to advanced.

I teach children ages 7-17 how to perform in front of a live audience, respond to interview questions prior to performing on stage, how to prepare, plan, dress, and promote their performance. Our participants are taught how to make friends, support one another, respect, consequences, and sportsmanship. We teach them how to have fun, yet how to be professional. We make sure our participants have an opportunity to learn on a professional level by experiencing how to interact with international celebrities:

Lynnette Cole

International Pur Mineral Spokesmodel, Miss USA 2000, actress, and director of Miss Southern Tennessee Pageants is our annual host for the Children's Benefit Talent Contest. Lynnette teaches the children how to interview on stage and gives them tips on how to relax as well as encouraging the participants prior to their performance.

Linda Davis

1993 Grammy Recording Artist for Best Country Vocal Collorboration, Country music, performed in concert and held her workshop SP 101 for participants. The students learned techniques to fine tune their talent.

Chris Young

Winner of 2006 Nashville Star, Grammy nominated for Best Male Vocalist, and nominated for many country music awards and winner of 2011 American Country Awards for his single, "Voices" and Breakthrough Artist of the Year. Chris opened our first Talent Contest as a special guest and performed for a benefit concert for one of our volunteers.

We have been fortunate enough to see many of our participants continue in their walk of success and get recognized on other stages as well nationally attention: Colton and Schyler Dixon are siblings and winners of our 2008 Children's Benefit Talent Show, both were contestants on American Idol and Colton finished in 7th place! Colton was blessed with the opportunity to promote his talents and gifts on a national level. We know some great company will be willing to sign him to a label. We are happy to know that Colton is focused and knows what he wants to do with his future: he wants to be a Christian musician.
