“1. Set the goal;
2. Do the work;
3. Let GOD deal with the everything else.”

… says Kawan Prather, seasoned music executive and producer who discovered Clifford “Tip” Harris among others. The Grammy Award-winning songwriter has pulled out his turntables and now he’s turning up and shutting down the party scene in Atlanta.

He recently played with two of his favorites. He writes on Instagram, “Tonight is about to be Great! I get to DJ alongside 2 of my favorite DJ’s… @djjaycee313 (#Assasin) & the Birthday Boy, @djwallysparks (I legit have fun watching Wally spin)!! You should be at @basement_eav, where the music & vibe will be CRAZY!! #KPTheGreat?? #HappyBirthdayWally”

That night, KP The Great rocked the crowd for the monthly “good vibes only” party, Before Serato, in Atlanta’s historic East Atlanta Village.

Held at Graveyard, one of Atlanta’s hottest hidden gems in the dance scene, this event was a special birthday celebration for DJ Wally Sparks, founder of the Before Serato music series.

KP The Great made sure to stay true to the theme and put on a performance just like the original DJs would, before Serato was introduced. From Nirvana’s “Smell’s Like Teen Spirit” to Nicole Wrays “If I Was Your Girlfriend,” KP made sure to have “good vibes only” throughout the night.

He also had the pleasure of DJing the annual Green Heart Holiday Gala in Atlanta. Held in honor of CeeLo Green’s Greenhouse Foundation, this event featured an evening of sounds by KP the Great, live music, performances from V. Bozeman of FOX’s hit tv show “Empire” fame, rap/rock group Swagu as well as up-and-coming artist Dezmond Meeks.

KP made sure to keep the energy high while guests participated in the silent auction to raise funds for green projects like gardens for children, green living awareness and initiatives to build greenhouses in neighborhoods across Atlanta.

“Living a more green life not only helps your everyday lifestyle but it makes a tremendous difference for our environment. What my brother CeeLo is achieving for the youth with his Green House Foundation is remarkable and is taking steps in the right direction for a better and healthier tomorrow. I am very glad I was able to be a part of such an amazing event,” KP the Great shares.
