“I had to make a trip down to Atlanta to see this #LeapOfFaith in person. It’s one thing to see renderings of it on my computer or seeing other people posting it. But #WOW I can’t believe I really did this." Racquel Bailey

RACQUEL BAILEY LARGER THAN LIFE

Racquel wanted to make it as an actress, but standing in endless lines at auditions wasn't getting her what she wanted, so she hired a billboard close to Perry's office for thousands of dollars.

She had her face and contacts printed on the huge outdoor display along with the message:

"ATTENTION MR PERRY RACQUEL BAILEY IS YOUR NEXT LEADING LADY"

TYLER PERRY RESPONDED TO THE BILLBOARD

Perry responded to the billboard on a post in his Instagram, scolding Racquel for her crazy stunt, and telling her that the way to get a part in his projects was to audition like everyone else.

TYLER PERRY - A MAN WITH A BIG HEART

Tyler Perry is known for his excellent work in the movie industry, as a producer, a director, and actor.

What many may not know is that Perry is also an extremely generous man. He recently surprised the mother of a former employee with a very special gift: a new home.

Perry brought the $350,000 home in Georgia as a gift to the ailing mother of his former employee, La Shun Pace.

The Paces are old friends of Perry, a family of Gospel singers whose song was used by his movie “Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Family Reunion.”
