I don’t remember the first time I heard Thirteen Year Old Dylan Cragle sing, but I know it stopped me dead in my tracks. His performance really captivated me as I watched this young inherent talent more than demonstrate his ability to deliver a song. It was then that I realized, Dylan was going to be a powerful force in the near future! Dylan was born on May 4, 1996 in Washington State, USA. His Mother Lynn told me “Dylan immediately started using his voice an d hasn’t stopped since.” Dylan has always been a very social person. When people meet Dylan they often remark on how articulate, well mannered, charming and funny he is. Some have described him as having personality plus.
As a small child Dylan was always dressing in costumes, acting out stories and putting on shows f or his family. When he was 3 years old he told his mother “I’m going to be a star (on stage, not television).” Dylan began taking Dance lessons for the next 4 years and really enjoyed the Jazz and Hip Hop classes. He was a natural and excelled, receiving a Scholarship from the school. At the end of his 4th year of dance class he decided that the costumes had become a little too much for him and dropped out. Dylan then told his parents that he thought he could sing, so for his 10th birthday he was surprised to receive an interview with a vocal coach. It was then his parents turn to be surprised, when the vocal coach said “He has a re ally good voice, he can sing.” This was the start of Dylan’s passion.
Dylan’s greatest love now is to sing and be on stage. The first time he came off a stage his mother recalled him stating: “That Felt So Good”
Dylan is also interested in acting, and would love to perform in a Broadway play. His favorite musical is Wicked, he collects anything that has to do with that Musical.
