And The Winner Is...

With over 16,000 submissions into the talent search contest it was difficult choosing a winner. To all of you who entered the contest, I just want you to know that you have all been entered into the Tyler Perry Studios casting database, and my Casting Director has been instructed to use people from the contest whenever possible. So you may get a call for upcoming movies or TV shows. A lot of you are super talented. Thank you so much for auditioning!

This was a hard decision. The winner of the talent search contest won for several reasons. One is the number of votes, but more important than that is the level of talent. I'm very excited to work with this person because I love breaking fresh new talent. I was so inspired by this person's work that I can't wait to create something for this person to do.

And the winner is Darmirra Brunson.


Let's get to work,

    Wow! Mr Tyler Perry, I just had to leave you a message, first I want to say, I'm so proud of your accomplishments and that bad a** ...meaning good... The haves and the have not's... Love it! I just finished my first book that took 4yr to work on, and man! how do you find time and the energy for all you do and keep that award winning smile... Once I finished my book, I realized the real work only just begun (getting my book published)... I take my hat off to you and to all the hard working author's out there. You have been truly blessed.

    I was molested several times in my life and I held it so tightly in my heart that when my brother died all these ill feelings and thoughts came along with it so I wrote this poem. The vessel that I have become feeling the task and responsibility of many Not just for one This feeling of fullness, yet so empty within I sit and try to think back to when this depleted feeling began Did I inherit it from Mom or Dad Was it the confusing and dysfunctional childhood I had How does a child feel so confused Isn't this the time in life we are supposed to be amused I move forward in my steps, but in my mind I cannot I started remembering a** those bad things I thought that I forgot The sinful touches on places I wasn't sure I was supposed to feel Was I making this happen, was it even real Why? What? When?Where? Who? The men I loved that wasn't supposed to Should I scream! Iam; in my head, but I can't hear it-I wonder if anyone else hears my cry If they don't hurry I think I'm gonna die I feel my breath disapating...slowly, but once he leaves I expel Now damn, I guess I'm going to h*** I should have stopped him, I should've run, but I didn't realize what was happening until it was done I should hide now, just smile and take whatever I'm offered-never look them in their eyes because it's the mirror to your soul And mine has already been stole. So I go on from young to now on a maze that people keep calling life, but the pain I've endured over the years continues to cut like a knife.

    Houses and cars are expensive and not every person can buy it. However, <a href="">business loans</a> are created to help different people in such kind of situations.

    Tyler, I can't find the words enough to Thank You for all your Inspiration in my Life. so often times people write or reach out to people because they are in a position to help them or because they are headed somewhere in their lives. But I love you for the you part of you that have been revealed to me. You are deep. You are passionate, very profound, lovable, and straight up. Thank You. I give God the Praise for that because I know that any good in us all comes from him. You are blessed amoung many. Thank You for all the e-mails and Thanks for sharing a part of you with all of us but mostly I Thank You for sharing with me. Your words have truely touched my life. I hope for the chance to someday meet you (if be god will) If not To God be the Glory all the same cause He Reigns. Be Blessed And Stay in the FOG (favor of god) Peace out Yo girl Shirl.
