Kim Graham

Welcome to the next dimension! Praise Factory Incorporated presents the next move of God! "Neo-Inspirational Soul." Announcing the emergence of a new artist on the scene, Kim M. Graham. Celebrating the new release "Transformation.

"First you take the unadulterated Word of God, add in a dose of the Spoken Word Vibe and spice it up with the hottest tracks around. What do you get - Psalms of the next Dimension! David set the words of his heart to music to lift up the name of God, Now hear Kim Graham! Call her what you may...Counselor, Minister, Teacher, Missionary, Director, Writer or Actor; Evangelist Kim M. Graham's ministry is the same - To usher individuals into wholeness by facilitating greater knowledge of self and the divine. Jesus told Peter, "When though art converted strengthen thy brethren."

She finds direction and purpose in this statement. "Transformation" provides a unique vehicle to accomplish this goal. The inception of this project came about as several individuals determined in their hearts to take the Spoken Word Vibe to another level in God. Kim Graham has been writing almost since she was born. She has recognized for many years the power of words and music to provoke change in the lives of those who dare participate. Transformation takes the kernels of truth spoken in the Bible and transforms them into the poetic structure of our day. We are in need of a fresh move to reach the lost and dying souls of our generation. So many are asking like Ezekiel did, "Can these Bones live." Kim reminds us just as God told Ezekiel; they can and will if we will "Speak to the wind." Kim Graham has had the opportunity to minister in diverse places in diverse ways.

With thirteen years in the ministry, she has served in many capacities in her church and has ministered both home and abroad. Use of the dramatic arts has been a constant in Kim's life since she was a child. She feels greatly blessed of God to use this gift to minister to His people. Currently Evangelist Graham is the Director of the illustrated Sermon of her local church, New Destiny Fellowship, under the leadership of Bishop Thomas Wesley Weeks, Sr. In 1999 Evangelist Kim was privileged to spend a month in Nakuru, Kenya ministering the word of God and learning about the culture. She has also done missionary work in Montserratt and in the inner cities in the tri-state area. Evangelist Graham has a special spot in her heart for youth and does programming both in the church and in the schools. Kim also serves as conference planner and co-coordinator for the Annual Praise Power Celebration sponsored by TWWSR Ministries headquartered in Wilmington, Delaware.

In August of 2001, Evangelist Graham was ordained and elevated to the eldership of New Destiny Fellowship. Kim Graham holds a M.A. in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in Psychodrama, which allows drama to be utilized for therapeutic wholeness. Ms. Graham serves the Family Services Coordinator and Lyabo Parent Education Director of Christina Cultural Arts Center, where she is also is a member of the teaching faculty in the theater department. She has studied the arts at The Wilmington Black Theater Ensemble, Christina Cultural Arts Center and Freedom Theater. Kim Graham is founding member of Griots Wa Umoja, an afro-centric performance arts ensemble, where she performed for 2 years. Her recent directorial works include For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf, The Amen Corner, A Raisin In the Sun, and Secrets in Silence.

Within the ministry she has directed several illustrated sermons, Forgiven, The Prodigal Son, and A Woman with an Issue. In 2000, Ms. Graham served as artistic director and assistant producer of a social documentary "Building A Common Ground" filmed by first-time videographers in Wilmington, Delaware.

"We have within us a power that flows from the Creator Himself. We can speak life or destruction. We can plant seeds of hope and courage or till the weeds of despair. I choose to use my work to reflect Gods Creative power."

Tramaine Dunlap

Tramaine D. Dunlap was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA. At the early age of 9, He began to study music and with prayer and full support from his mother Yvonne Dunlap God began to do the increase. His initial introduction of diverse instruments such as the bells, violin, clarinet and trumpet was channeled throughout elementary and middle school. Tramaine began to play the bass guitar that was purchased by his former pastor at his previous home church Southern Baptist. By the time he reached high school, he was playing drums in the jazz band and orchestra and lead snare in the marching band. While in high school Mr. Dunlap was under the direction of Bill Whitaker who taught the group "Pieces of a Dream". Also during his high school years his horizon was broadened as he traveled to Boston's, Berkley Jazz Competition, where he and the quartet came in 2nd place in the country. In 1992, Mr. Dunlap shared the same stage, playing with former president of the United States, Bill Clinton. After completion of school, God called this young man to his spiritual calling to play the organ. Tramaine has ministered and done various workshops throughout the city, and has also played for many local groups, such as Temple University Gospel Choir, Philadelphia Mass Choir, Divine Praise, Praise and Worship Chorale, Jehovah’s Chosen and many others. Tramaine has co-written and recorded songs for artists such as Edwin and Walter Hawkins, Tri-State Mass Choir, Steve Middleton and Unity in Praise and Divine Praise and many other thriving projects. In collaboration with Ernest Miller he produced the current jingle for Gospel Highway 11(1110 am). It is the countdown for the top 11 songs of the week. He also has to his credits two stage productions at the Philadelphia Freedom Theater where he served as keyboardist/arranger/band leader for "Lazarus Un-stoned" and there smash hit "Black Nativity". This anointed man was previously appointed as the Musical Director of the Baptist Worship Center, by his Pastor, Bishop Millicent Hunter. Tramaine D. Dunlap is also owner of his production company Maineline Productions “where we do music from the heart”. He operates a studio that has state of the art equipment to produce any demo, album, jingle, cover songs for weddings etc. “Maine” has also collaborated with one of hip hop's hottest producers "Bernard "Big Demi" Parker" on many projects including a song they submitted for Eve's UPN television show. From the experience of working with artists like Eve, Beenie Sigel, Memphis Bleek and Foxy Brown to name a few, it gave Tramaine the opportunity to meet and work with an abundance of artists, managers, and writers on the other side of the industry and for him to take his production to a whole new level. By working with many writers and Big Demi, it prepared Tramaine for where God has him at today! He is 11 years happily married to Ronda Dunlap, his high school sweetheart and out of this union God blessed them with two sons Tramaine Dunlap Jr. and Trae Nicolas Dunlap. So look for great things as this young man stands on God's word which is Ephesians 3:20: Just believe.
