    Tyler Perry what can I say? I love all of your work!! I like how everything has a deep meaning. My name is Elease Harris and I’m 15 years old. There’s a lot in life I would like to achieve in life and one of them is becoming an actress. I’ve recently started applying for modeling and acting I don’t have any experience but I doubt that i’ll need much because I just have that type of personality. I hope that my acting dreams will someday come true and i’ll continue to be confident, faithful, and very positive of my dreams coming true one day!

Surely, it will lead me to other great accomplishments. Sincerely, An Artist in Every Way!

    I’m so proud of the work that you’ve done throughout the years, Mr. Perry, as this has bought opportunities for thousands upon thousands of people who otherwise would never experience a dream, goal or vision. Like everyone else, I too have been touched through your generosity and Just want to thank you.

    Although I do not reside in Atlanta anymore, I do read the talent news to see what’s going on in the casting arena. It is my hopes that I can share one of my Scripts once I find someone who’s in the ‘Pitching’ field. I once read in an article that you would one day venture out and make films of the genre of Science- Fiction.

    If you are interested, I’d like to share two of mine, along with a few of my novels that can become adaptations for TV. I’d love to share those with you in the future. Again, thanks for being a Blessing to so many people, as you have single-handedly employed and cast thousands who are grateful that you took a chance and BELIEVED IN YOURSELF so that you could be a blessing to others.

    I’m a SAG eligible actor here in Atlanta. Still pushing. But, no matter what I do, my family will not believe that I’ve made it until I’m in a Tyler Perry movie. I’m a big fan and student actually, but to hear that tickles me. It shows your power and inspires simultaneously. Love it and Thank You for your leadership. One day though.

    Always looking forward,

  16. Michael LeBron Davis

    I Believe I was meant to be in this field of acting though I have chosen it. I am a local commercial driver in Louisville, Kentucky. I make a decent living, but always wondered what if. I believe I have family already that are doing well for themselves in this field, but parents have lost contact. The reason of me feeling this way is that I am always pulled to trying to figure out a way to audition for something. Well, if anything is close to Louisville, Kentucky I am free on the weekend completely and free during the day from 3pm-9pm. Later

    Mr. Michael LeBron Davis

    Good evening I would love to know when there will be auditions in Baltimore and New York. I know God is accelerating this year. I watch Tyler Perry movies for years and he has had a phenomenal impact on me. I’ve been able to be in two plays, one was at the oldest African American theatre in the United States, arena Playhouse, the play was called daughters of God by Anthony Presley. This was A phenomenal spiritual impact on my life. My role was Lot’s wife, God is accelerating me. I hope it will be an opportunity to move forward. I appreciate in time and thank you.
