As we break out of this pandemic, people are in need of inspiration now more than ever. Born and raised in Winston-Salem, Dr. Travest Hunter aims to be that voice of inspiration with his CD that includes scriptures from the Bible, healing prayer and inspirational music in the background.

Hunter noticed a need for such a CD and was divinely encouraged to make the CD to help others in their time of need.

“I was at home in meditation mode and during the pandemic I looked at the sickness, I looked at the deaths and I was looking at all of the churches closing down, jobs shutting down, people going through things, burying their loved ones and just out of my spirit I was thinking, ‘Lord what can be done?’” said Hunter about how the thought came to him to make the CD.

“From there I was inspired spiritually to come up with the inspirational healing CD and from there I started compiling all of the healing scriptures in the Bible. I wanted to set them to inspirational music and then on the CD, as well is a prayer for the nation. It’s a prayer for national healing, state healing, local healing, people with coronavirus and all its variants. It was totally birthed out of watching the pandemic and all of the depressing news. I was trying to bridge the gap between people getting hope, people building on their faith at the time. That was the total premise of the project at the time.”

Hunter said people can listen to the scriptures, the music and the prayers to keep themselves in a positive frame of mind during such a depressing time.

What further convinced Hunter that he was on the right path was how everything seemed to fall into place while putting the CD together. Hunter says he was on a phone call with a good friend, Bernard Scales, about how to make it work. Scales connected Hunter with a producer friend, Justin Summers, and they soon went to work.

“Those two (Scales and Summers) had already paved the way for the project to be materialized,” said Hunter. “He (Summers) said ‘because you are a friend to Bernard, I am going to help you do this,’”  He stayed with me through this whole process to make sure that everything was set up. I want to say this was a three- or four-month process.

“The whole process of this project was seamless. No complications, no nothing. I have to credit Jesus for all of that. He is the source of inspiration and he is the source of all spiritual goodness. That was one of the highlights of the project.”

Upon hearing the finished project, Hunter was overjoyed at how well his original thoughts translated into what he was hearing.

“When I heard it, I had to sit down because the biggest thing about hearing your own voice is ‘oh my God, I sound like that,’” said Hunter. “I had my own apprehensions and I use this CD myself. I use it every morning during my meditation time. 

“One of the things that we forget is that healing is still a benefit that God offers. We always praise God for the big things like cars, houses and money, but we forget about healing as a benefit that comes from our inheritance through Christ.”

Hunter will be holding a launch party for his CD tomorrow, Friday, at Taste of the Triad Restaurant from 5 to 7:30 p.m. For more information or to RSVP, call Hunter at 336-287-2572. There will be food and entertainment during the event.

“I wanted to officially release the project because it is already out on several digital platforms,” said Hunter. “I know that we live in such a digital age, but I can never forget my home. I am a Winstonian from the heart and my generation, when we want to do powerful things, we always leave and come back. 

“I never left, and I never wanted to lose sight that I am a product of East Winston, I am a product of the Black church in Winston, I am a product of the school system and Winston-Salem State. I am a product of Winston-Salem in every way. My whole family was born and raised here. With everything that I have done, Winston-Salem has helped me and I never forgot that.”

Hearing positive feedback about his CD and knowing he helped someone in their time of need are the exact affirmations Hunter was looking for while putting the project together.

“It’s a confirmation as to what you’ve been inspired to do,” said Hunter. “There are no doubts, no reservations, no hesitations that this project comes from God. I didn’t give myself these thoughts.”

You can find Hunter’s CD on digital platforms such as IHeartradio, Pandora, Amazon Music, Deezer, YouTube, iTunes and Facebook.
