There I was, preparing to sing the national anthem at the Mets vs. Giants baseball game at Shea stadium – a ball of nerves. Afraid, reluctant and apprehensive to say the least. I questioned my ability to perform in front of a crowd 30,000 plus persons. So many people counting on me to give honor to such a brave and liberated world yet I felt so fearful and shackled by my fear. In the midst of my anxiety I can recall two birds flying over my head. I said to myself “they’re not scared to fly because they were BORN TO FLY.” At that very moment I realized that there is nothing to fear for I am BORN TO SING! From that day to this, I’ve been affirmed and validated. With your help I can continue to soar into my destiny. On stage, with great musicians making beautiful inspiring music to share with the world is what I intend to do with your help. I've been blessed to share my gifts and vision with some of the most incredible musicians ever created. We’ve all spent countless hours, days and nights practicing, shedding, sharing, revising all to bring the world a sound of love, unity and togetherness. Shawn Dustin on drums gives us a pulse straight from the heart. Antoine Katz has the fingers of an octopus with the touch of a baby the way he graces the strings. Clifton Williams – the next Herbie Hancock – what can I say his playing massages the soul. This band’s musicality, positivity and chemistry has inspired me to be a better vocalist and person! The moment we’ve started playing together we connected. We challenge each other musically, support each other and most importantly we have fun with each other. We just need your help to share this experience and music with the world. I am a three time winner at the Apollo. I’ve sung with the Boston Pops and played in places such as the Blue Note. All of these experiences have been amazing. They’ve all been steps in the direction of ultimately sharing my album with the world. I’ve always dreamed of being a famous musician and sharing my original songs, my experiences with the world. I’d love the chance to put together a product that culminates my life long passion for music. This project exemplifies my determination and persistence through the process and interpreted through each song. I would continue but then you’d forget that we need the money! So what do you say? Help support us in our endeavor and become a part of history in the making!
