It is an honor to introduce Prosperity Carter to the world. Prosperity is a hip-hop and r&b recording artist, songwriter, poet and choreographer from New York City. She is best known for her hit single "The Struggle", from her first solo cd "Overcoming My Struggles".
Raised in Southside Jamaica Queens, New York, Prosperity began singing, dancing and writing poetry in her early childhood as a tool to overcome her trials in life. In the year of 2011, she moved to California of where she was later introduced to Marvin X a poet, play-right and essayist. Marvin X was highly astonished by her multitude of talents that he helped her print her first book, "I'm already famous", which is now titled "Beyond Fame". Prosperity didn't stop here; it was only the beginning of her journey.
In later 2011, she was also introduced to publisher of the Oakland Post, Paul Cobb. Mr. Cobb gave her a column at nineteen years old in promotion of her book. Prosperity also performed at the Alameda County Juvenile Hall giving out her books to the incarcerated youth, offered words of encouragement and even prayed with them.

Even though life had its ups and downs, Prosperity came to the conclusion in the year of 2015 that dreams do come true. "Fame is not only about being known for your talent, but utilizing it to contribute to change in the world makes a big difference". She also doesn't believe in giving up and will continue to remain humble and ambitious.
