‘Historic occasion’ for Allen University
By MORGAN SHERMAN

“It’s a love thing!” shouted Greg McPherson, a professor of music at Allen University, as he keyed up an enthusiastic crowd Monday at the college’s John Hurst Adams Gymnatorium.

The doors opened at 9:30 a.m. for the first presidential campaign stop in South Carolina by Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y. A half-hour later, the building was crammed, with many people waiting in a line that stretched across the street.

At 10:30, a half-hour after she was scheduled to start, Clinton took the stage.

She was greeted by colorful posters and banners plastered with “Hillary for President.”

More than 3,000 people attended. Those who could not enter the arena observed Clinton’s address from the lobby.

Ahead of her arrival, Earth Wind and Fire’s “Shining Star,” rang out after Allen University choir student Anya Dixon sang the national anthem.

As “Right Here, Right Now,” by Jesus Jones played, the crowd roared as Clinton finally appeared at the center of the room.

A local pastor provided the invocation, a prayer of peace, justice, love, joy and understanding.

Among those welcoming Clinton were Student Government Association president Dwayne Smith, Miss Allen University Nezhla Sanderson, and Miss Benedict Nadia Mohammed.

Clinton covered issues ranging from health care and education to unemployment and energy independence.

The visit to Allen University was both anticipated and well-received, as one audience member compared her to activists Susan B. Anthony and Rosa Parks.

Rosetta Butler of Columbia said: “Hillary will bring back the honesty that’s been lost. I think she will keep track of what Americans want.”

Columbia entrepreneur Russell Nelson said Clinton would “bring change and a different perspective.”

Allen students will remember this event for years to come, said Sandra Melton, executive assistant to Allen University’s president, Dr. Charles Young.

“This is a historic occasion the students will cherish,” she said. “They felt it was great exposure and an opportunity for prospective Allen students to see the leaders that this institution attracts.” - "The State Newspaper" - Morgan Sherman

Bio

Evangelist Anya A. Dixon, on the surface, is a talented and extremely accomplished musician, who manages her own music production and musical training business, with over 15 years in the music profession, she is a considers herself a music prodigy who takes untrained voices, non-music note readers/pianists, and develops them into enduring musicians and singers. As such, she has produced CDs for clients and even her own (titled New Life), written scores of songs for herself and others, and coach and train her piano, voice and violin students through recitals, countless performances and private lessons. But more than an accomplished musician, Anya Dixon is a person who influences and persuades people of all walks of life; whose talent is highly sought after; and whose reputation as an artist is respected and trusted. She is a Contemporary Christian artist, and it is there, that her heart lies. Also, she loves to play and sing jazz.

Anya is a gifted singer/songwriter/musician/producer based in Columbia, South Carolina., who makes music her life, and has fun at it. From the piano lessons that began at age three, to playing musical instruments and singing in churches, orchestras, choirs, and jazz bands, she has craved the joys that music bring; and most rewardingly, she shares it all with others. Her repertoires of instruments also include the violin, flute and xylophone. Being spiritually-focused has guided her career.

Anya Dixon graduated cum laude with a Bachelors of Arts in Music Industry from Morris Brown College, Atlanta, Ga., in 2009, where she studied under the Grammy Award winner, Dr. Gregory McPherson. It was there that she continued to develop her passion for music with a focus on studio production. After graduation she entered New York University, New York studying for a Masters of Music in Music Technology/Film Scoring, 2010-2011. She had previously studied music and music production and engineering at Berklee College of Music, Boston, Ma., where she helped to co-found the Phi Beta Co-ed Fraternity for the Creative and Performing Arts. Additionally, she holds a diploma in recording engineering from the Audio Institute of America, San Francisco, Ca.

During her most recent years, Anya has fed her insatiable interests and talents in music and music production investing in directing the youth choirs at Red Hill Baptist Church and Mt. Nebo Baptist Church, both in Gadsden, SC. She led the youth at Red Hill to win third place in the Youth/College Choir Competition for two years, consecutively, and has directed the 600-member South Carolina Baptist Congress Youth Choirs. At the release of her first CD, "New Life," Anya Dixon received a Resolution from the South Carolina House of Representatives for her contributions to the music industry. That same year she was nominated for the Gospel Recording Artist of the Year at the 3rd Annual South Carolina Music Awards.

In June 2009, she had the privilege to open for and sing background for Pastor Marvin Sapp. In 2013, Anya was selected over hundreds as the runner-up in the Joyfest Six Flags over Georgia Artist Competition. Her music is played worldwide on several internet and terrestrial radio stations and has been featured on national television. She is most proud of her recording studio, which she established to write, produce and record under her Christian record label, All "A" Music, LLC. Her ultimate goal is to open a Cultural Arts Center to give young people an opportunity to learn creative and performing arts in a Christian environment. She lives by her motto: "Music is life. Life is good" and says "If I can inspire one child’s life, my heart will sing the tune of success."
