Has done performances with his song lyrics for local coffee shops in his home town Charlotte, NC, before he learned to create music with a friend from his church by the name of Shawn Easton, who played the the guitar, he performed his song lyrics locally for the Caribou coffee, on East boulevard, The Roc' N Java Cafe on South Tryon street; Then Shawn Easton Moved away to Ohio, what will I do now? decided to test one of my lyrical poems at the Neighborhood Theater at 511 e 36th St Charlotte, NC and I received a standing ovation; I continued to pursue my dream as a songwriter, I later did a performance at my home church The Charlotte Church.org, me and three other
Brothers, Leon Hills/deceased, & Big AL, We received a standing ovation with over 900 members that day. It was still hard for me to get the songs I had in my head out to my audience, with out Shawn Easton, all I had was lyrics so I looked for other avenues and discovered musical software,
I was up all night trying to learn the software it drove my wife and mother in law bonkers, but then a light bulb came on I finally figured it out and from that time on
I went from not knowing how to carry a melody to playing the keyboard, 2009 I created my first Instrumental album CD "Spirit Of God, So I took my cd to the lead of our church choir Vincent Black and let him listen to it and he chose one of my instrumentals as and opening performance he had scheduled, I was really inspired
and from then on, I sold my first instrumental at Make Hit Music.com, and my sister purchased one my instrumental "Walking On Water" for a commercial advertisement.
Later I Traveled to Pasadena California, to receive My Award for my song "Hope" Took pics on the Red Carpet with the Akademia Music Awards Executive team.
My love of music runs deep, It shows in my unswerving movement towards my dream of Christian / stardom. Unlike many contemporary Christian artists, however, My music has an edge my music combines a flawless lyrical flow with evocative rhythmic elements. Coupled with original lyrics and a memorable hook I sometimes write songs about hope and taking my experiences in life the good and the bad and try create positivity, I now sing on my church choir and inspire to write Christian Contemporary Songs & Christian Rap. I have suffered a lot of lost of friends and family so I try to relate to my audience in different ways because they may be going through the same thing, in hopes to turn negative energy in to positive energy and perhaps motivate & inspire one to get through it and to maybe come to and understanding.
others & sisters there were 8 of us in all now there's 7 of us I was next to the youngest and now I'm the youngest, I most likely got my musical talent from my daddy's side of the family, my Grandmother Betsy Franklin played the piano, and my aunt Louvena Wrote songs and also played the piano, but for now I am the only member of my family that is pursuing their dream as a songwriter.
I listened to a lot of different styles of music growing up, I look for the heart in every song, its hard to compare me to other Artist because my style is original and I am very diverse with my lyrical & musical content, but if you had to place me in any Genre it would have to be inspirational because my Faith shadows me.
