Why do you love music?

What's not to love about music? Music is the universal medium that has the power to transcend the soul. It is both calming and uplifting. It can relax you and energize you. It can motivate you and inspire you to do great things. Music does not criticize or judge who you are, no matter how perfectly flawed one may be. It just lets you be yourself, allowing for the pure expressions of love, joy, despair, pain, etc. All these emotions are what makes us human. That’s what music does; it brings out our humanity. I’ve been singing since I was 2 years old. My mom says I learned how to sing before I learned how to walk. She says I gravitated to the sound of music before I even knew what music was, and my ability to memorize a song after hearing it only once, at that young of an age, was uncanny. Although I don’t remember those first years of my life, I believe her. Music is inherent in me, and it is as essential as breathing. No matter what and where, music will always be a part of my life.

What makes you different as a music artist?

I don’t know how different this makes me as a music artist, but I have a very strong and versatile voice. I can sing various musical genres, such as: Classical, Pop, R&B, Pop-Country, Gospel, and Musical Theater. I even dabble in some beatboxing. Besides my voice, my other strength lies in my ability to connect well with the audience and in bringing out emotions that otherwise may have been suppressed. I love putting smiles on people’s faces with an upbeat, rock song; getting someone in the mood with a jazzy, R&B song; or bringing others to tears with a heartfelt love ballade.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

In five years, with dedication and hard work, I will be a well-known recording artist in the music industry. I will have continued to perfect my craft and will have attained a singing caliber that is worthy of show-stopping performances to audiences in the US and around the world. I hope to be collaborating with other artists, as well, and being able to provide powerful and meaningful performances. I also expect to be able to foster the love of music by helping other music lovers along the way, especially those who share the same passion for music like I do.

What do you want to accomplish in life?

I would like to be an established and esteemed music artist and be acknowledged and respected by my peers in the music industry. I expect to always continue to evolve musically and put my talents to good use. My success in the music industry will mean I can share my love for music and help others do the same.

What do you bring to the music world?

I bring a powerful resonating voice that can be applied in many genres of music. My versatility and my flexibility can appeal to the masses. I think that the ability to reach many people with one voice is a valuable and a rare asset. Also, my love for the stage where I come alive while performing, allows me to connect with the ease to those listening and singing along.

What do you want to be remembered by?

I want to be remembered as a great vocalist with a good heart. I want my powerful voice to soar through the skies and bring hope and joy to those who need it most. I want the sound of my music to put a smile on people’s faces not just because I’m a good singer, but alsoI’m a good human being. I want to be known as someone who loved to sing and loved to share his gift with others.
