The level of difficulty for singing out here is through the roof

“Mobile is my hometown, but I left in ’99 to go to college, and I have lived in Atlanta and New Orleans and have bounced around from city to city pursuing my music. I am 36 and have been singing since I was three years old. I have invested my life into music. There is no turning back now. Singing on corners is how I make my living. The beauty of it is being able to make a mistake. The level of difficulty for singing out here is through the roof, and I don’t choose easy songs. I had to pay $130 for a peddler’s license to sing out here and still get chased off. I want to go to Dallas and sing. I think I will be more appreciated there. I know not everyone appreciates me singing on the street or likes my voice, but I am singing for the ones that do. I am here for the ones who support me. Getting the compliments as people walk by is the greatest motivation. It makes me sing harder and pull myself up by my bootstraps to know people enjoy it. I do this seven days a week, and I enjoy every minute of it, even when I get scoffed at. There are a million distractions out here, freight trucks and buses coming by all of the time. I stay focused on the song. Remember the words, round them off properly and breathe. It’s not about the money. I want to be a music revolutionary and change the world through my music.”
