History of Come Clean Entertainment

"If the desire is there then make the commitment now, and remain faithful to God. Remembering the responsibility to his creation as an instrument displaying love, peace, and unity ways of life. As well as what it means to be on God's time."-Darryl Wheeler

In 1987, Darryl Wheeler stood on a hilltop overlooking the city of Chattanooga, and what he saw was appalling. He saw children using drugs, young people engaging in acts of violence usually reserved for hardened criminals, depravity and all manner of immoral behavior; In short he saw need. Darryl made his way down the hill with a dream of filling these needs; little did he know what it would grow into.

Coupling this dream with personal determination, and the realization that all things work to the good of those who love God, Darryl began a small traveling road show known as the happy clowns; a group of like minded young people in colorful attire who traveled the southeastern U.S. dancing and singing the praises of a clean, positive, drug-free lifestyle.

With this mission of positively at heart, the Happy Clowns pressed forward with such great success and acclaim, that the city of Chattanooga decided to honor them. It was while performing at this gala event that the Happy Clowns were seen by one Sylvester Burton, who was so blown away that he promptly offered Darryl a record deal; but yet the time was not yet right.

Two years and countless hours of work later, the paths of Mr. Burton and Mr. Wheeler crossed again and though much time had elapsed, the electrifying performance that Sylvester had witnessed was still fresh in his mind.

After extensive prayer, Darryl decided that the time was right to take the happy clowns to the next level. So, shedding the clown suits, but keeping their positive ideas; The Happy Clowns transferred into the Nu Beginning who quickly became a sensational success.

Hardship after hardship came, often leaving them in their wake tears, heartbreak, and disappointments. Yet Darryl still stands, and with a greater understanding of the music business, he is able to work hard and build his own label; thus Come Clean Entertainment was born, a label dedicated to inner personal contact, integrity, and honoring God's love.

Our current project the DVD release of “A Walk Through Time” represents an expression of love and our continuing commitment to family, God, and the power of love. In our humble opinion the autobiography will serve as a valuable life lesson and testament to obedience, perseverance, and commitment .

In the beginning we went through many trials just to get a smile from a child who may have been just a little less fortunate. Times were hard, but through the grace of God we made it. The most amazing thing of all is the fact that after all the faith, prayer and hard work we are still together today. With so much love and the wisdom to share it with all of God's children. Faith in God and hard work does pay off, no matter who turns there back on you. Just don't' turn your back on God!!
