In 2014, the passing of Slater’s mother took his highs and turned them into the lowest points of his life. Depression struck and left him without a will to live. The pain of losing his biggest inspiration had him angry with the world and angry with God. After three years of walking in the darkest moments of his life, he used his music to heal his broken heart. Slater poured his emotions into a song entitled “Unleash Me.” From that moment, the restraints were lifted and the chains around his mind and heart were broken. Slater continues to command the stage, and his anointing permeates throughout every performance. He has toured in Europe with Michael M. Smith, and served on the same programs with various artists such as: Peggy Britt, Marvin Sapp, Vernon Gordon, Pastor Norman Hutchins, Deon Kipping, and J.J. Hairston. Slater was also featured on the live recording Bishop Kim Brown presents Earl Bynum and The Mount Unity Choir. That performance won the 2014 Stellar Award for Contemporary Choir of the Year. He realizes that singing is his gift; but his purpose is to glorify God, and to bless someone in the process. In December of 2017 Slater signed a recording contract with GnextLife. GnextLife is a newly formed brand/record company in Virginia headed by Mike E., a former member of the Neptunes and Teddy Riley protégé.
