When combined with the power of the Word, Colour of Love crosses all boundaries. Their purpose is to minister in song and teaching, conduct ministry outreach in traditional and diverse settings, and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

For the youth they have reached, it has served as a positive enabler, a source of nurturing; and sometimes an exercise in prevention education against gangs, drugs and violence as a way of life. 
Through a cutting edge multi media capability, the SOG Crew has been able to reach the smallest to the tallest in the arenas of their efforts.

The Latin Kings All Stars can be compared to a 2-sided coin called the Latin Kings Music Group. On one side is the Latin Kings All Stars Band and on the other is Christian music ministry comprised of the group BUENO or a BUENO ministry team. A simple concept with two distinct purposes. This effort started in March of 2009 with an idea about how to better help community organizations and churches meet community outreach needs. The idea was to create a project around music that would have market demand and pay for itself. Hence the Latin Kings Music Group was birthed. We use each Latin Kings All Stars performance to help offset the expenses to churches and community organizations that are normally associated with travel, lodging, honorarium, etc. With each Latin Kings All Stars Band performance, a Christian and/or community outreach follows the next day where a BUENO team, or the Christian version of the Latin Kings All Stars Band, With each Latin Kings All Stars Band performance, a Christian church and/or community outreach follows the next day where BUENO or a BUENO ministry team will minister in music without significant expense to our ministry hosts. This is the reason the Latin Kings Group was started.
MUSIC TRADITION - Our musical purpose is to uniquely portray and celebrate the music that a diverse global market, has listened to for many years. This is accomplished through the talent and accomplishments of a group of all time great artists in the areas of Latin Rock, R&B, Latin Pop & Soul, etc. The band and guest artists include accomplished veterans whose performance and resume credits include being tour artists and former members of MALO, Sly and the Family Stone, Tower of Power, the Lowrider Band, WAR, Santana, Mariah Carey, the Dramatics, Sapo, Parliament Funkadelic, the Brides of Funkenstein, John Lee Hooker, Jr., Michael Fanti and Spearhead, Stevie Wonder, and many others to assemble a group of world class artists that offer an unparalleled music experience.

Pastor Sal Perez is considered to have one of the most powerful and anointed voices in Gospel music. He is the Senior Pastor at Victory Outreach Tucson, AZ. and he ministers in word and song to thousands of people at Churches and events across the United States and abroad. The Gospel of Jesus Christ, through Pastor Sal's testimony is reaching hurting people everywhere. Pastor Sal began singing as a young man at Victory Outreach Pico Rivera in the early 80's.
He found it difficult to serve God at a young age, fell away, and started a life of drug addiction, gang violence and prison. In 1990, just after losing his mother to cancer, he remembered her words, "You are going to be a Pastor one day." In his bedroom he cried out to God and rededicated his life to the Lord. Since then he has been committed to ministry with Victory Outreach International and has been the Pastor of Victory Outreach Tucson since 1999. Because of the insight of the darkness of at risk and destructive lifestyles and the radical change in his life, Pastor Sal can now preach to lost and hurting youth and adults that are living a life of drug addiction, gang violence and prison life, giving them a message of God's changing power. It's about experience and testimony. 
Though Pastor Sal is a Victory Outreach Senior Pastor and though, under the leadership of Pastor Sonny Arguinzoni, Sr.,  the denomination basically wrote the book on "Outreach Ministry" to the hardcore lost, Pastor Sal's "Old School" style of music combined with his talent and personal style standout in their own strength and anointing and make his music and ministry very recognizable and relatable to those same people that he has been called and seeks to minister to. It's an instant conversation of mutual trust to a gang member, it's and instant open door to an honest conversation with a heroin addict or those more prone to violence than conversation, and so on. BOTTOM LINE ...all of what Sal Perez has been equipped for and brings to the table makes him a tool and weapon in God's arsenal as he uses this man to reach the lost and begin to minister to and meet the needs they have in order to start a process of bringing them out of darkness and into God's light and His plan for their lives.
Pastor Sal has released three albums (CD'S) to date. His first album is entitled "Keep Your Head To the Sky" and is comprised of a variety of Old School Christian oldies such as "Ain't No Stopping us now" and "Cross My Heart" The second is entitled "Straight From The Heart”, and the 3d is Holy Rolas Volume I . To purchase music by Pastor Sal or if you are interested inviting him to minister at your church, your festival, or your ministry event, you may communicate directly with him and his team at his site by simply clicking on any image in this section.

George Castaneda, Jr. is a gifted man whose creative music ability flows from a process based on personal introspect and intuition. This combined with being a prolific song writer with a knack for creativity makes him a music world onto himself at his level and ability.

That is Brother George and he has only just begun.

Evangelist Art Blajos
Evangelist Donald "Big D" Garcia passed on June 9, 2012.  
In respect to him and his family, we will offer his information first, followed by that of Brother Art Blajos.
While they had upheld and never violated or dishonored the Mafia code they had protected and lived by, they laid their lives on the line when they chose to change and live out lives of faith. It was not until that moment of decision and acceptance of Christ that they found out who they truly were and there was no turning back. For more than three decades since, they returned to that world and faithfully dedicated their lives to ministry and community service using their testimonies and their faith in the redeeming power that they found in Jesus Christ to touch and help redeem lives and inspiring many to come out of the world of darkness they had known.
"It is an honor for the RMPA 2017 Awards Team to announce that "Charmie Smiles Social Justice Awards" will be awarded to Evangelist Donald "Big D" Garcia (Posthumously) and Evangelist Art Blajos during the 2017 RMPA Music Awards Week of Awareness and Celebration activities. After lives of being state raised and many misspent years of service and dedication to California's street gang, prison gang, and drug world sub-cultures and roles as shot callers and/or enforcers for the Mexican Mafia, these men walked away from all of it under an automatic Mafia creed sentence of "Blood In, Blood Out." By God's grace these two men survived and they faithfully and successfully overcame the many serious challenges that followed after leaving "the life."
Art Blajos is a global Evangelist based at the Victory Outreach International mother church in Chino, California. His story is well known and is best associated with his self authored bigraphical book "Blood In, Blood Out."  Brother Art saw his beginnings in a violent gangland subculture neighborhood and later became a feared and respected character of the landscape of the prison, street, and drug subcultures of California. His early involvement led to his imprisonment at the age of sixteen. All told, he spent a total of seventeen years in prison including four and a half years on death row fighting the death penalty.
For fifteen years Art Blajos AKA "Conejo" was a member of the Mexican Mafia prison gang . His primary role was as an edict enforcer and assassin. In 1984 he made a breakthrough decision through God's conviction in his life and via the ministry of Pastor Sonny Arguinzoni and the Victory Outreach Ministry he went to a Victory Outreach Rehabilitation Home and accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his Personal Savior. What happened then? Art will tell you this "God not only began to transform my mind but also gave me a new heart and I never looked back." 
When he later authored his biography "Blood In, Blood Out", the book became a tool that served to chronicle his life in crime, his conversion and his ministry within Victory Outreach International. The book has been tremendously effective in reaching thousands of inmates in prison systems world wide as well as other hurting people of the world with the message, the hope and the plan of Jesus Christ. His ministry includes personal street evangelism, gospel meetings, street rallies, crusades, Men's Discipleship Seminars and Prison Ministry Seminars.

During his years as a minister and gang intervention activist in Southern California Evangelist Donald Garcia AKA "Big D"was known as one of the most effective gang intervention specialists in the San Fernando Valley area of California. He was uniquely qualified through the long hard road that brought him to that distinction. 
Victory Outreach International Chino, California
During his 31-year prison career, Donald became a founding member of the California based prison gang, the Mexican Mafia or La Eme. During one of many conversations, Donald once shared that the gang was originally formed to address and enforce equity concerns among prison inmates, but then went on to become something totally different and Donald Garcia went on to be both respected and feared at every level of corrections and in the streets across California. He was considered to be a hopeless case and it was a given that he was expected by his peers to die on California's death row. But Donald found the way and when his life changed he took the raw ruthless strength that put fear in the hearts of men and let God transform him into a strong, yet humble man ready to minister and give help to anyone, anywhere. To befriend Big D was to know real friendship.
In his own words, I grew up in a single parent home; Gang members killed my father when I was only two years old. During my years of adolescence, life was unstable for me at home and school. As a teenager I created a small crew, which became the beginning of my career as a gang member. From then on my life, ages 15 years old through 46 years old, were filled with violence, incarceration and hopelessness, beginning with my residency at the state penitentiary, then graduating to the Federal prison system. This continued until I was 47 years old, then I found a new life.”
Come 1985, Donald Garcia became a committed Christian and left the gang. 
Under the direction of one who came to work with, know, and respect Big D and Brother Art Blajos and whose life was forever impacted by those relationships, the 2017 RMPA Awards Team will recognize and honor Evangelist Donald Garcia and Evangelist Art Blajos for their faithfulness and all they have done since they made the decision to walk away from complete darkness and destruction. Deservedly, we honor them for their work and accomplishments with the many thousands that they have helped to lift up out of the abyss. By these works, their faithfulness, and the fruit at their doorsteps, they represent scripture fulfilled both in their own lives and in the lives that the Lord has made them to be a vessel of fulfillment -- "And I will give you the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, the LORD, who call you by your name, am the God of Israel."
That is when his new life began. Donald was released in 1987 and began a long association with William “Blinky” Rodriguez. When Blinky’s son, Sonny, was murdered by San Fernando gang members three years later, Donald and Blinky began an effort to stop gang violence by focusing on peace, non-violence, and Christianity. By 1993, the Valley Unity Peace Treaty was formalized and had the immediate impact of reducing gang homicides from 56 to 2 in an eleven-month period. Donald went on to author, produce, and distribute a biographical book entitled "Big D - Victorious Through God's Grace." His book found it's way around the world and his story served to minister and give hope to the hopeless including to thousands in prisons, jails, on the streets, and youth on a broad scale. 
Brother George currently hails from the Central Valley area of California not far from McFarland, CA; the town depicted in the popular movie McFarland USA, with Kevin Costner, however, he is from Santa Paula, CA.: a beautiful place with history, tradition, and beautiful people. George has recorded both secular and faith praise and worship music. Much of his music has a grass roots Latin flavor that represents his life experiences and the value and strong tie that he maintains to his culture. George has fun with his music and one can see that in the music videos that he has produced, however, on the other hand as his spiritual introspect becomes prominent through the a presence of the Holy Spirit and he begins to write and record, the depth of his love and regard for the Lord will be seen and heard through the expression of his music. This is also Brother George Castaneda, Jr
