Anthony's appearance on NBC's The Voice led him to being discovered and enlisted to perform and produce vocals for various major artists and networks. In addition to vocal production, Anthony has been enlisted as talent producer for an assortment of popular reality and competition shows. This sojourn in Los Angeles has led him to think more progressively about his own music and ministry, desiring to communicate in terms that connect with people spiritually, no matter where they are in their journey with the Lord, without compromising his own faith and message. This focus, along with his powerful, one-of-a-kind voice, has allowed Anthony to not only vibrate the doors of the church, but to make connections and venture beyond.
