At age 16, he had his first name legally changed from Emmitt to Tyler in an effort to distance himself from his father.

Perry did not complete high school, but he earned a GED. In his early 20s, watching an episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show, he heard someone describe the sometimes therapeutic effect the act of writing can have, enabling the author to work out his or her own problems.

This comment inspired him to apply himself to a career in writing. He soon started writing a series of letters to himself, which became the basis for the musical I Know I’ve Been Changed.

Tyler Perry Career

Around 1990, Perry moved to Atlanta, where two years later I Know I’ve Been Changed was first performed at a community theater, financed by the 22-year-old Perry’s $12,000 life savings.

The play included Christian themes of forgiveness, dignity, and self-worth while addressing issues such as child abuse and dysfunctional families. The musical initially received a “less than stellar” reception and was a financial failure.

Perry persisted, and over the next six years, he rewrote the musical repeatedly, though lackluster reviews continued. In 1998, at age 28, he succeeded in retooling the play and restaging it in Atlanta, first at the House of Blues, then at the Fox Theater.
