“Blackwell has opened for a virtual who’s who of Rap Acts including, LL Cool J, Ghostface Killah, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Bizzy Bone, D12, and Kayne West. He says that his influences are his mother and father, who taught him never to give up and to never take no for an answer. Another huge inspiration is Stevie Wonder who gave him his first song he ever played on piano and also penned the first and favorite R&B jam, “Superstition”.Blackwell also greatly admires Diddy, but not for his music so much but for his business style. Blackwell regularly performs at Club Voodoo, and has played House Of Blues in Cleveland, Peabodys, Muggswigz in Canton, Karma in New York, The Coffee Cafe in Pittsburgh, Heniz Field in Pittsburgh, and even played last year at The Hall Of Fame Game V.I.P. party. ”
