ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Lamar Reese Elementary School Assistant Principal Martez Favis just returned from Washington D.C., where he performed with some big-time stars, Andy Grammer and CeCe Winans.
Favis is a part of a gospel group named Patrick Lundy and the Ministers of Music, which performs nationwide.
For the last decade, the group has been invited to perform on the Fourth of July in DC, and this is the third time he's had the honor to perform on the lawn of the capitol.
Favis said its one of the best feelings in the world to see thousands of faces in the crowd, and knowing his students are at home watching.
"It's an inspiration for me to be able to be a physical representation that anything is possible. That it doesn't matter where you come from. There's no limits to your success. There's no limits to your greatness. If you have a dream, if you have a goal go for it, and that's what I try to instill in them every day," said Favis.
Favis said he will continue to do what he loves and encourages others to follow their passions.
