About Our Key Note Speaker

 

Diego Fuller

 

Most teenagers remember the day they got their license, or their sweet 16, or even prom night. For Diego the most prominent day he remembers is In 2002, when Diego showed up on Pastor’s Aaron Blake Steps. At that moment in time with all of Diego emotions sky high, Blake stopped Diego at the door and told him to lose any Foster Care Mentality that he has. He went on to tell him, “You are not a Foster Child; you are “Engrafted” into my family. A lesson taught but not learned until almost 10 years later when Diego was 24 years old living out what it means to be “Engrafted”.

In 2014 Diego released his Second studio album titled “ENGRAFTED”. That’s now Ranked #1 Album Locally on Reverbnation, #22 in the Nation, and also #25 around the Globe, and was nominated as Artist and best song of the Year. Diego released his Engrafted Music Video July 2015, and the Video and song has aired across the world on multiple Radios Stations and different sites such as www.familylifetoday.comwww.cafo.org, and more. As of now Diego the Founder & President of B.I.G Records & Foundation, and Aaron Blake Founder of Harvest Family Life & The Keep, has joined forces and are now traveling the country Empowering the Local church to create a culture of families prepared to accept the calling of Orphan Care. We truly believe that if the Church could get involved with the state and help take on Foster and Adopting the fatherless, we can save a child and change their destiny, just as Bishop Aaron Blake done with 6 foster boys including Diego himself.
