Latrelle was raised by a God-fearing widowed mother who taught her that God is the answer to everything in life, that prayer is a gift more powerful than life, and one can never “out-give” God. Latrelle was taken to church even before she was born so accepting Christ at an early age was easy. She served as pianist in her small rural church from age eleven until she married and moved to another state. Latrelle has taught Sunday School, sung in her church choir, served on nominating committees, decorating committees, and hospitality committees. She believes that Christ is the only answer as all “people need the Lord”. “How can they hear without a preacher”?
Most recently, Perry worked simultaneously as a realtor for Rogers Healy & Associates in Dallas and as president of Perry Productions & Management Group in Frisco, Texas.

Prior to those roles, Perry was the music and worship chief of staff at Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas.

Although not a UGA graduate, Perry is as close to being an alumnus as one can get without a diploma. A native of Columbus, Georgia, the majority of his family are Dawgs (his mother and father are 1983 graduates) and all of them now scattered throughout the state. Perry earned his bachelor’s degree in music business from Dallas Baptist University in 2008. He is an active member at Prince Avenue Baptist Church in Bogart, Ga.
