A Short And Sweet Thank You From Me To You

On July 8th, I will be celebrating 20 years in this business. 20 YEARS! WOW! When I started I had one prayer: I asked God to just let me do well enough to take care of my mother. Well, from the time I prayed that prayer until the day she died I was able to do that because of people like you all around the world. I remember the day I told her that she could retire, she said, "baby, are you sure these little plays are going to be able to take care of you and me?" LOL. I said, "as long as my folks keep coming." Then, a few years later, she was at one of my plays looking around at all the people in the audience. After the show she said to me, “the people love my baby"… OK I gotta stop thinking about this… :)

But thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. For every time you have supported a Tyler Perry anything. For all the times you have gone to the movies, for every DVD and for every time you have come out to see my stage shows live. For every time you’ve watched on TV.  You have shown so much kindness and have stayed with me. I just want to say thank you. You have kept a lot of well-deserving people employed, folks who would never have had a shot in Hollywood. You have created a safe place for many to see their dreams come true.

My prayer for you is that everything you have done for me, may it come back to you one-hundred fold.

God Bless,


I'll talk more about this today on the live chat at 1:30pm ET at live.tylerperry.com/chat

    I have tried to post quite a few times and it did not even show up and now I can't even join to ask now. So I will ask again hopefully I will get some type of response. How do I figure out who I am? How do I overcome my biggest hindrance, myself?

    I would love to hear from you. Give me a call when you get a chance. Not seeing any replies on you live chat.


    Hi Mr. Perry. I absolutely love your work. I have supported your projects since those live performances at the Sanger Theather. As a matter of fact, I managed to save a picture from back in the day. I have your dvd collections. Hopefully one day I will meet you and get you to autograph my Tyler Perry Treasures. You may even see this name in an audition upload, still deciding if the time is right now for me or maybe a little down the line. God will give me a sign. :0} May the Lord continue to bless and keep you. P.S. I tried the live chat section, but didn't see my comment so I think it's me not website.
