The Hits

 

After 10 years of being invested in my musical career and recording over 100 songs, I've put together an album that celebrates my evolution and growth as an artist. 18 of my most streamed/downloaded songs via social platforms and digital stores will be showcased in this album that perfectly sets the stage for the NEW Pop record which I plan on releasing summer of 2017. This Friday, December 9th, 2017, "The Hits" Pre-Order will be available on ALL digital platforms worldwide with a scheduled release of December 30th, 2016th and I couldn't be more excited! It has the Pop, Hip-Hop, R&B, and Dance music people have enjoyed from me throughout the years. I want to quickly thank you guys for your continuous show of support and love. ^_^ 2017, I'm ready for you baby!! =)

 

Fester Skank

 

This Thanksgiving I am thankful that the election is FINALLY over. On the bright side, I realized that if someone who can spew lots of hate and amplify racism can make it as president, there is NO WAY I can't reach my goals and aspirations of using my art  to influence the world in a positive way. This up and coming year, I vow to go full force and use all of my skills and gifts to knock open doors wherever they may lead. Millennials and Generation Z- we are the ones who will change the world Thank you guys for your friendship and love! Here is my latest dance video to a song I heard while I was in Europe titled "Fester Skank" by Lethal Bizzle feat. Distortion. Check out the fashion, heels and moves! Hope you enjoy it!! 

 

POP ALBUM SPRING/SUMMER 2017

 

With the recent release of my latest EP “Dripping in Gold," I’m happy to reveal that a POP album is in the works with a slated SPRING/SUMMER 2017 release. Originally, I had recorded tracks for one album, however, some songs were primarily Hip-Hop/R&B while the others were FULL on Pop. As I wanted the final album to sound cohesive, I decided to do two separate projects with two different release dates. What can you expect on the follow-up to "Dripping in Gold?" AMAZING dance tunes that will light that bootay on fiyah!! Oh, and the album cover is going to be amazing! I can’t wait till you hear these new tunes and see the album artwork!!! =)

 

"Dripping" into Pandora

 

I'm pleased to inform you guys that my latest EP "Dripping in Gold" is now LIVE on Pandora radio along with 2 of my other 8 Albums : "Discovery of the Sesliu Galaxy" and "6." Be sure to give the songs a thumbs up. Spread the word!! =)

 

My Journey

 

It was exactly ten years ago that I received my Associates Degree in Music Production from a small private college in St. Paul, Minnesota called McNally Smith. Two years prior to that, I graduated third out of my high school senior class of about a thousand students. Had I known when I first started that there was a thing known as a GPA, I could have easily been Salutatorian, but being first generation American, many things were new. I didn’t begin listening to English music till I was in middle school and the first time I went to the mall was in 7th grade. Basically, one can say, I was a little out of the loop when it came to American culture and its terminology, but I adapted. Nonetheless, I am proud of what I learned from the magnificent teachers who passed down some of their knowledge to me throughout my primary and secondary education. What I’m most appreciative of, however, are not the rewards and accolades I’ve received throughout my life, but everything my parents sacrificed to give me the opportunities they never received as kids.

 

Now what?

 

After an extensive trip that began in Europe, continued on to Asia, and ended in Australia before I headed out on a fifteen hour direct flight back home to Dallas, TX, I have lots to share. My main reason for this trip was artistic inspiration and boy, did I learn A LOT! I am currently working on many exciting projects which include more vlogs, blogs, pictures, and of course music that is in the works. The music however, won’t be released right away… I’m estimating end of 2016, early 2017. To everyone I met along this journey, I want to thank you for sharing your energy with me and for making this trip an unforgettable one. Being that I write my songs off of personal experiences, you will definitely see this trip reflected on my up coming musical project. Plus, the photo-sessions will be AMAZING!! You know nobody does it like me… Stay tuned!! ^_^

Pride Anthem

 

There is no denying that us LGBT folks are special; we are vibrant, magical, and have an understanding for both male and female energies. We are the color in a black and white spectrum of light. We are rays of sunlight in what can sometimes be a dark world where we bring gifts to share with the world. When writing "Children of the Rainbow," I wanted to celebrate our essence. We bring color, we bring love, we bring change. Join me this June in our celebration by sharing the rainbow and helping show that together, we are a formidable force of nature. Let's make "Children of the Rainbow" the Pride Anthem all over the world this summer and stay true to our colors.
