Can you tell us about your latest release and the background and inspirations behind it?
Yes. My latest release is call “Missing You” released January 4th 2019. This is a special song because I wrote it about my mom who past away from Colon cancer on July 20th 2018. It was very hard to sing this song becauses it still hurts even now thinking about it. My mom was my close friend. She was also one of my biggest fans. She inspired me to start singing, and use to invite her friends over to our house for them to hear me sing. Everywhere we went, to the mall, grocery store, church, she would stop the people and ask me to sing for them. I miss her so much. That is what this song “Missing You” is about. I hope each person who has lost someone they love, listen to this song and think of the good memories they had with person.
How have you ended up in the music industry?
I started in the music industry in 1992 with a idea in mind that I wanted to be a perfessional singer and songwriter.
