Growing up, playing the saxophone in church is where this all started for him. He blends the sound of gospel and jazz to present a dynamic music experience.

A young man with a distinctive mission and purpose in life allows his music to be a powerful message in surroundings. With little formal training in music, he took it upon himself. Got equipped and it all changed his life around.
