Thank you from all of us at Opening Act and the MusiCares Foundation for helping us provide health, financial, and rehabilitation resources to musicians in their time of need.

What do you enjoy most about being a musician?

Music is a life changer. It has taken me around the world and given me opportunities I would have not had otherwise. It allows me to share a message and a gift to the world all the time. It is the career that you love doing, makes me smile every day.

Which musician would you like to collaborate with?

I would love to collaborate with my hometown locals Fred Hammond, Kirk Franklin, Erykah Badu but also artists like Lucky Daye, Cardi B, Anderson Paak, Kendrick Lamar and J Cole.

If you were the next Opening Act, what would you do with $10,000?

Having just helped put my daughter through college I would focus on my career as I strive for international stardom. I would use part of the money to start my own non profit to help teach kids music, mentor young men and invest in my business.
