Resized TALKBOX_photo_supplied_by_Byron_ChambersI wrote this article twice. I first wrote it several weeks ago and for one or another reason, did not publish it. I am revisiting this article because even after the time lapse, I am still convinced that this international award-winner is a "must-have" on Wedding Anthem. In fact, the only thing that has changed since then, is how much more persuaded I am of that fact.

It is not every day that one comes across such an award-winning, multi-talented person who is this passionate and talented about what they do. I did not believe it myself, until I listened to his work and was pleasantly surprised.

He is well-known for the "Talkbox". If you are not sure what that is, keep reading. While at it, perhaps you can take it a step further by supporting him and purchasing your own copy of his work. As an author myself, I am really looking forward to his upcoming book!

Just in case you still want to know a little bit more about him, you may be interested in knowing that he has performed alongside internationally acclaimed artists such as Jonathan Butler, The Mighty Clouds of Joy, Fred Hammond, CeCe Winans, Kurt Carr and Bishop T.D. Jakes.

Dearest Wedding Anthem readers from Africa and beyond, here is Byron “Mr. Talkbox” Chambers! Please welcome him onto your devices and hearts. I am so glad to feature this living legend. Unique, talented and so on point!

In one sentence, who is Byron?
Byron in one sentence is "The Joy Bomb".

Briefly, please tell our readers a little bit about you...
What so I do? Well, I do multiple things. I am a multi-instrumentalist, meaning I play multiple instruments well (drums, bass, guitar, keyboard/organ and The Talkbox). The Talkbox... Ok. I know you're asking, "What is a Talkbox?"

A Talkbox is an effects unit that allows musicians to modify the sound of a musical instrument. Not only modify, but make it “talk”. So with that being said, here are some of my highlights on Talkbox: I have five number one singles in Japan. I am featured on Nathan East's "Daft Punk" which debut at number on the Smooth Jazz Billboard charts.

I am also featured on TobyMac's songs, namely Diverse City, Feeling So Fly, Mr. Talkbox The Interlude Thankful For You; all of which (the songs) are on Grammy Award winning and nominated records. I'm a Dove Award winner (the Dove Awards are like the Christian version of the Grammy Awards). I'm also the former keyboardist of NSYNC, the biggest selling band of the millennium. – Those are some of the highlights of my career.

Can you please tell your fans what you have been up to and/or what's next?
To my fans… This year, I stepped down from being part of TobyMac's Band Diversecity to pursue my solo career full-time! So I've been touring. I had the great pleasure of co-headlining a tour with my good friend Chris August this past spring and I have been doing lots of festivals in the USA. I am recording a new record and getting ready to release a new single soon! I am planning a new tour, spring of 2015 as well. I am also working on a new book with my wife Tamara Chambers!

How do you find a balance between what you do and who you are?
Finding the balance between what I do and who I am is sometimes hard. This is because – if I can be transparent – as an artist, I sometimes feel like my validation comes from how many fans I have or records sold. But, I have learned that it isn't from those things. My validation comes from God and who HE has created me to be. So I've learned to place God at the center of my life. With His guidance, that's how I balance between what I do and who I am

We celebrate love. Do you think true love exists? If so, Who/what/where is it?
I DO believe that TRUE Love exists. Who do I see it in? I see it in me. My children. My wife. All those who give their lives to serving others such as the troops all over the world, doctors, teachers etc. What is Love? It is ACTION. Someone ACTIVELY Loving someone or something PURPOSELY. Where is Love? It's IN US ALL! We just have to let it SHINE.

I'm a strong believer in God's Word. His Word says that we were ALL created in the image AND likeness of God. The Creator of ALL things. He has however given us a choice to choose whether to accept that or reject it. So I ALWAYS challenge my fans and followers to express and SHOW YOUR LOVE that God has given.

Do you think there is still a place for marriage in this day-and-age?
Is there a place for marriage in this day-and-age? YES! To those individuals that want it. We're living in a time where there are NOT many good role models of monogamy/marriage. BUT, there are an elite few that is. So, we as a people have to decide whether we want to do it the way God has set it up or not. Some may not believe in God's way, but through the test of time I believe His way will outlive any other way.

Do you have a message to Wedding Anthem?
My message to Wedding Anthem is to please continue to be a part of that ELITE FEW that stands for the truth of what Marriage really is – and how God made it a beautiful thing.

Amen. Anything else on your mind?
Let your Light SHINE that men may see your good deeds. That God be glorified!

A shout out to my boy for making it onto this prestigious site/blog. We thank Jesus for you and give Him all the glory! I was encouraged by hearing Mr Talkbox give all the glory to God. Halleluah!
