This Album Release “Share the News” went to 21 on the billboard charts, and was still moving up when, what was later deemed a blessing in disguise, forced Calvin to pull the Album.
In 2004, while in the midst of arranging a tour for the album release, Calvin was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. But Calvin’s faith and prayer, once again brought him through the dilemma and with the help of great doctors, he was able to successfully remove and treat the nodes that were putting pressure on his vocal cords. Calvin took this as divine intervention and while recovering found other callings that would also allow him to serve the Lord.
Below are just a few of the highlights that transpired thru out the next several years.
