This campaign and lifestyle change all began last year as a partnership with Radio One DC along with Decalo Weight Loss, Wellness, and Pain Management Clinic in an effort to not only lose the weight but encourage others to make it.
"I'm overwhelmed by the stories and people that have reached out to me through my weight loss journey. I had no idea that my decision to live a better life would impact people from around the world. When I post pictures on social media, tags like #MyWeightlossJourney has gained me followers and new music fans. One thing about Weight loss is that it's cross-platform so people from all walks of life can relate. I feel like at this point God has turned my body into a living testimony. I'm so grateful for the staff at Decalo Weight loss who has guided me through each pound of this process from over 500lbs to now," says Butler.
Decalo Weight Loss, Wellness, and Pain Management Clinic are based in Oxon Hill, MD. They offer affordable memberships with a number of programs including weight management, intermittent fasting, wellness planning, and pain management care while taking a holistic approach.
"Charles Butler is an outstanding artist and has been an amazing partner with us on many initiatives for our clients in the past years. We are excited to see the continued success he has achieved while embarking on this life-changing journey. His transparency, and willingness to share his life with the public is to be celebrated. This is brand alignment at its best," said Samuel Tatum, Director of Sales and Solutions Radio One.
After the success of his album, Make It, which debuted in 2016 and received two Stellar Award Nominations with its self-titled single, "Make It," Butler decided he could no longer encourage people to make it and not make it himself.
In just a little over a year, Butler has lost over 200lbs and is continuing his journey of lifestyle change, diet, and exercise all while maintaining a busy schedule.
Presently, he is preparing to record his 4th album. The date and location are set to be announced in early 2019.
