My love and passion for music started as a four year old child ,as far as I remember.My kindergarten teacher would sit me on the piano,and i'd sing to the class.I loved it!!!
As a young child, and througout my teen years, I watched my dad playing guitar and harmonica, and singing the blues. He'd have jam sessions at home almost every weekend, and He played in various bands as a youth.
My mom was a singer of gospel.Her dad was a preacher.As a youth, my mom traveled with her older brothers, and sang at various churches and was well known for her strong vocal ability.
As a pre-teen,I was a member of my junior high school choir. also I sang in my church choir.
I started publishing my songs with BMI in New York,
2003, I wrote a song called (Late at Night) and submitted it to Billboard World Songwriting Contest. It got me an honorable mention, scored 8 of 10 pts.
From 2004 to 2007, I got six more honorable mentions for songs I submitted to Billboard world songwriting contest. The mentions made me happy because I did my own music, with the Help of GOD. I even got a letter in the mail from Jim Halsey , CEO of Billboard !
