We had the good fortune of connecting with FEARLESS and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi FEARLESS, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factor behind the success of my brand is God. He’s the one who’s given me the name FEARLESS. Because He saw in me, the courage that I didn’t see within myself, to carry out His. mission. He’s also given me the health, the strength, the abilities, the gifts, the talents, the ideas, and most important, the compassion to reach the masses through my music ministry. Without Him, I wouldn’t be able to do what I do as an artist. And my brand wouldn’t be as successful as it is today.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My art is based on my circumstances in life. I paint pictures through my music based off of situations that I’ve faced. And my experiences as an adolescent, all the way up to my adulthood. What sets me apart from others is that I’m an artist who is not limited to the stages. I also do Community Outreach, Street Witnessing, Prison Ministry, Youth Events and Motivational Speaking. I’m excited about about every opportunity that I get to influence the masses. I got to where I am today as an artist, and professionally, through the different people who God placed in my life over the years. Those individuals helped me, prayed for me, shared wisdom with me, opened up their platforms for me to gain exposure, and taught me how to conduct myself as an artist, and/or professionally. Most importantly, I studied my craft. However, It wasn’t always easy. There were times when the pressures of life had almost gotten the best of me, to the point I wanted to give up. But, God had to remind me that their was a greater purpose in my pressure. And that He was pruning me to become even greater with what He’s called me to do. He told me that I was like fine jewelry being sent through the fire to be tested. So, that motivated me to go even harder. I want the world to know, that if God can use me, He can use anybody.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
If my best friend was visiting the area, I’ll take them to a couple of chill, fun spots. So, I’ll take them to a nice spot to eat breakfast. Hit up the mall to sightsee, and/or do some shopping during the afternoon. Maybe later on towards the evening, take them to meet some of my family members. The night life, maybe go shoot some pool at a Billiards or go Bowling. Or if I happen to have a studio session, bring them to sit in on the session with me. Of course afterwards, find a nice restaurant to sit in and eat dinner. That’s pretty much it. If It was a week long stay for them, then I’ll have to take them to an Orlando Resort to getaway for a few days. That’s where us Floridians go for fun. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Yes, I would like to shout out my wife and kids for being by my side, and for their love and continued support throughout the years. My mother, who prayed and spoke over my life since I was a young boy, saying that I’ll be creating music that glorifies God. My spiritual leaders who have instilled so much wisdom and biblical knowledge into me. My prayer warriors, who covers me in prayer. The Churches, Ministries and Organizations who I’m connected with. All of the artists, and producers who’ve I collaborated with, and have relationships with, who hold me accountable. All of those who have, and continues to support FEARLESS Ministries. Thanks you all so much!
