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.
