These past few days have been truly amazing.
Due to unforeseen scheduling, I was unable to attend this year’s Ambassador Award ceremony. God is so amazing! Thank you, Queen, Carrie Brown! She jumped over hoops with leaps and bounds to present such an honor to me at the “Throwback Sizzling Jam” concert on Sat. May 29th.
I am so humbled and grateful for such an honor. I thank my mom, Josephine Rice, for every sacrifice she’s made for me. I thank my brother, Darryl Francis, for being my for real day 1! I thank my entire family #mallardstrong #teamrice, my church family #nehemiahministries, and my mother and father-in-law Sarah Barta and Robert “Hubba” Barta. I thank my bestie, Kevin Ray, my community as a whole, all of my colleagues at Jammin’ 105.7, and every one of you who is taking the time to read this post.
I love what I do, and I thank God for this gift.
Last but never least, I thank my beautiful wife, Angel Rice, who has truly upgraded my life. Baby, love you! I dedicate this award to my Aunt, Carole McNulty, my Uncle, Harold Mallard, my Aunt, Janice Young, my Uncle, Will Young my TT Elaine Bell both of my dad’s Jerry L. Rice and Bill Napier. Rest in Paradise! I hope you’re smiling down on me.
