Gilbere Forté: “My view moving forward is working with obscure people that I think people should be listening to. That will be what determines my future collaborations. I’ve gotten some calls to work on other people’s projects but I really want to focus on the light that stands before this one.

Another dream is to have Jay-Z in one of my sessions, whether we collaborate or not.

“Right now, Pray allows me to feel like a chapter in my life is complete. I feel restored now that I’m no longer sitting with this music in my iTunes. It’s out now and I’m just really interested to see how people will receive this body of work. It feels like things are very much so in place and the universe is doing what it needs to do for me. I want to score a movie and direct, so like I said, I gave myself to my passion which is music first. That’s going to bring me to the dream."
