My First Contest Win

It was my first performance as an artist, it was October 2004, at The Male Box in Detroit, MI. I remember that night like it was yesterday, I took the stage to perform Cold Blooded by Rick James. It was really nice that friends and co-workers came out to support me on my big night. Their support was paramount to my success in winning that night – it boosted my confidence as a performer and entertainer. And the three men that are photographed with me helped me prepare for the road that I have been traveling for so long. As I approach my destination, I cannot begin to thank them enough for being a part of my growth and success. I have a lot of love for Dani, Marcus, and Damon. 











No stranger to the world of music, Martone’s years of experience in television, radio and now music have earned him both recognition and respect. Martone first realized his passion for entertainment after a televised performance at his first school play at the tender age of seven years old. Originally, from Lansing, Michigan, he is often described as an impassioned visionary, poised to become one of the most recognized names in the entertainment industry. The positive feedback from the audience at a young age, no doubt helped to cement his determination to succeed.
