Eddie Watkins, Jr. has already become a favorite of Unity of Wilmington! His Motown beat and New Thought/Ancient Wisdom message make his music at once deeply moving and powerful. Success and the fast life (Eddie played with Barbra Streisand, Diana Ross and other greats) led Eddie to substance abuse, recovery and an explosive spiritual expression of the Divine. Today with six CDs of original life-altering consciousness music, Eddie is on tour across America raising the vibration of the planet with his music at Unity of Wilmington.
