Correy D. McClure a.k.a. H.O.O.D. (highest order of discipline) = learning to wait on GOD, was born and raised in Charlotte N.C., H.O.O.D. started rhyming by the age of 10 and then started performing in different groups and talent shows by the age of 13. H.O.O.D. got his first chance at the national spotlight in 1991 on the John P. Kee and friends album on a song called We Shall Overcome. From that point H.O.O.D. continued to perform in groups and also travel with stage plays as a stage hand and also a fill in actor at times for the plays, “Trouble Don’t Last Always”, by the late Tyrone Gooding Sr. and “When A Woman’s Fed Up”, by David Payton ( known for the hit play “A Good Man’s Hard To Find”). In the year 2000 H.O.O.D. was finally tired of the theatre scene and the drama that went along with it so after a brief conversation with Pastor Kee he was offered a job on the road as assistant Engineer to Brian (bop) Smart and he was put in charge of making sure the monitor mix was acceptable for Pastor Kee and the musicians, and also he had to help make sure the bus was clean, help carry equipment to the stage, help breakdown equipment and what ever else needed to be done to make the trip happen. In August 2005 H.O.O.D. suffered several mini strokes on both sides of his brain and had open heart surgery to repair a damaged heart valve, the recovery has been nothing short of a miracle from GOD himself. H.O.O.D. was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in January of 2009 and is very active in the education of Diabetes to young children and adults.
