Onyx Vizion Productions will enhance the lives of the artists involved by: providing scholarships for further artistic development; rendering service to God and the community; and promoting entertainment to the world.
Results: We fundraised primarily this year to enable us to continue to take "Soul on Fire the Musical", to a new venue. We produced Soul on Fire the Musical, on October 6 & 7, 2012 at the Inaugural Atlanta Black Theatre Festival. It was performed on the Main stage, at the 14th Street Playhouse in Atlanta, Georgia. Onyx Vizion Productions, Inc. was awarded by the Atlanta Black Theatre Festival, Special Honors Excellence in Theatre Producing. In 2011 Onyx Vizion Productions, Inc. produced "Soul on Fire the Musical at the National Black Theatre Festival on the Main Stage in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Soul on Fire A New American Musical, premiered in Oklahoma City, OK October 28-31, 2010. We believe this musical is a Broadway worthy production everyone should see. One of our goals is to take this production on tour in the Spring of 2011. Secondly, we are striving to strengthen and enhance the Angelo Holman Academy through our tutoring progams. Thirdly, we continue to strive to make Onyx Vizion the very best production company.
Programs: Angelo Holman Academy was created to provide high school students in at-risk neighborhoods with the opportunity to be exposed to high quality art performances. We train the students to give back to their communities through the arts.- The Vizion Singers and Dancers perform at free-will offering events. The events not only entertain, but provide information on health and other issues critical to underprivileged communities.- OVP Scholarship - the scholarship is given to graduating high school students of the AHA towards their college education.- "Soul on Fire" is a major production, written and composed by our Artistic Director, which premiered in October of 2010 in Oklahoma City, Ok. We are planning to take this production on tour of several states in 2011. "Soul on Fire" is a poignant story of inner-city survival that also sends a powerful message to community youth.

Onyx Vizion has transformed my life as I entered in what I thought was a concert.
I didn’t know what God had in store for me as well as other. I came for a concert, but what we received was healing and Blessing. I experienced how God was leading us through the gifts of music and causing the alteration of heart and mind. I also experienced the power and manifestation of music, upon the soul and also renewed relationship in the Lord. The Healing Concert brought out many miraculous testimonies of what God has done and continues to do. One woman stood out in mind as she shared her testimony, of how she contacted AIDS from her husband and was in her final stage of the disease, but with God's Grace and healing she is a survivor after 19 years. She stated that she should be dead, according the doctors and they can’t understand why still alive with no sign of the AIDS antibodies. The incredible testimonies went on and on with expressions of God’s Grace and Mercy.
I truly believe that God is leading Onyx Vizion to win souls through music and artistic expressions to which He has placed in us for His Glory.

The show "Souls on Fire" helped me to let go of an experience one should encounter as a little child. I have let go "absolute" and moved on. Ironically the show was held in a church where this monster would take me and shake me. This is irony in its highest epitome. In other words, I trusted him as a father figure. For those of who have seen the show, I was a cast member in real life at the age of eight.

Most charity organizations tend to only move my wallet from my rear pocket. Fortunately, Onyx Vizion Productions have moved me educationally, entertainment-wise, and most importantly, spiritually. The informative leaflets and e-mails informed me of changes in the medical and financial fields. Plays, such as "Soul on Fire," lifted me up emotionally and spiritually as well.

The results of the scholarships offered by Onyx Vision only begin to tell of the deep rooted concern this organization has for our children from pre-school to college.

I would continue to keep Onyx Vision as a beacon for our youth just like they have been doing in the short time of their existence.

I saw the Wings of Harmony performance at Victory Baptist Church in March of 2009, and it was simply magnificent. This musical extravaganza rivaled the best of shows seen on Broadway. The musical genius and versatility of Mr. Tyrone Stanley is awe-inspiring. The student cast is just marvelous and this show deserves a wider audience and certainly a run on Broadway. Each song was most engaging and extremely well orchestrated, and left the audience spellbound.

Onyx Vizion has transformed my life. OV is a platform to express yourself with your God-given talents & gifts. OV encourages you to strive for excellance with a sense of confidence and pride. I have seen abundant growth & develop over the years because of OV's theatre programs, mentorship, and scholarship support. Due to being a fellow participant-when I was younger, I have been afforded great jobs & opportunities in New York City. Also, OV has instilled in me to give back in service and that is what I am doing as a board member, now.

Onyx Vizion Productions Inc. is a growing nonprofit organization that has a lot to offer the communities in which it serves. Dedicated individuals of this organization give established and aspiring artists a forum to demonstrate their talents and advocate for those who can not advocate for themselves through artistic expression.

Onyx Vizion Production is a wonderful non-profit organization in the musical arts. It allows aspirig artists and students of the arts, the opportunity to perform in different venues. Events seen thus far have proven to be increasingly extraordinary. Youngsters, adults, and seniors all seem to equally appreciate the talents displayed. Personally, I have always left the performances uplifted and inspired.

onyx vision production was the best choice i had ever made in my life.i went to contemporary arts high school for singing an i was not pleased. i had later met a lady named danita thompson and tyrone stanley they were god sent. i have never met people so loving caring and very honest. they had told me about there program and i was a little shaky at first because i had come from a program that didnt help me. they made me feel so welcomed and so free i just had to attend. they helped me an my school alot. we did shows like dream girls and helped people with their god given talent.i was always afraid to sing because i wasnt confident with my singing and my weight but they changed that for me so much. now i love to sing no one can shut me up i love my weight no one can put me down an i love onyx vision no one can take that away from me. i came in the problem a young girl and left a young women . im very pleased with the program an i think with a little more help these problem will change lives all over the world. i no it has changed mine and im very grateful for that.

I have witnessed many events sponsored by Onyx Vizion Productions. Their events were full of promising talent; well staged and rewardingly put together. Should the young people continue; pursuing and practicing, we would expect of them to become professionally proficient.

I have personally witnessed their performances and I am motivated to be a willing supporter in the future because of the meticulously attention given to the cultivation of their potential talent.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Enlarge all the programs and seek to involve more students.
