“My fans always know how to cheer me up and keep me going. It’s the strength from them, my team and from God that pushes and motivates me every day to keep going even when things get rough.” TJ Prodigy
TJLasinski or better known as TJ Prodigymade his debut on Rivenmaster’s Place back in March of 2012. Now over a year later Tj has multiplied his fan base many times over and has brought his message of Love, Respect, and Tolerance around the country raising awareness about the problem of Bullying to a whole new level.
I personally have never hidden the fact that Rap Music is not my favorite genre and while it does not play a major role in my music collection, I make the exception when it comes to TJ Prodigy.
TJ first caught my attention when I heard his song “We Stand” which was created with Tae Brooksand I knew then and there that this kid was going to go far.
While his YouTube Channel has been a little absent of new music videos lately there has been a whole lot going on behind the scenes of this exceptionally talented and busy young man. TJ has been working very hard with his team to bring new material to all of his fans.
In fact this was accomplished just a few weeks ago with the launch of his new EP entitled “ Flight”whichcreated such a frenzy that his fans literally took down his website with the boom of activity purchasing a signed physical copy of the new EP!
Amazing is a word that may be over used at times along with Awesome, Super, and Fantastic. However, when it comes to young singing sensation Sam Santiago, somehow they all just fit.
I recently spent a week in California visiting the Santiago Family and was privileged to follow along with Sam and his family as they went about their daily schedules. I have to tell you that this family leads an exciting and busy life. Of course they were not only wonderful hosts to my wife and I but it gave me an inside opportunity to see just what a fine oiled machine their family has become in order to keep up with Sam’s busy entertainment schedule. Of course this is not even to mention Sam’s school schedule, concerts, and activities that every normal soon to be ten year old has as part of his daily life.
Our first weekend was filled with excitement right off the bat, (Pun intended), as Sam was scheduled once again to sing the National Anthem for the Minor League Storm Baseball Team game that Sunday.
We arrived early for a practice run around 11:00 am. The field was in the grooming process and looked brilliant and colorful with fresh stripes of white outlining the bases and gorgeous green fields. Sam walked confidently to the front of the bullpen area and took the mic from our host. What a treat to hear Sam’s young vibrant voice rattle the empty arena with his clear sounding acappella rendition of our National Anthem.
