I was Born in Chicago got my first piano at 6 years-of-age and have been show business bound ever since! My most memorable moment is when Michael Jackson jumped off a stage into my arms! I Studied Music at Tennessee State University and later became the lead singer for “Fulfillment n Joy ” in Charleston, South Carolina as well as a Jazz vocalist on Beale Street in Memphis Tennessee. I love God and I believe in developing value in others! I love to talk and I love people.
