“Whatever happens with my life is all in God’s hands…Im just enjoying the ride He is taking me on!”Â Â Christopher McGinnis
Christopher McGinnis first came to my attentionÂ back in 2011 when I stumbled across a YouTube video of him when he was just 8 years old playing a Red Garland rendition of “Bye Bye Blackbird”. At just 8 years old, Christopher was an accomplished pianist playing mostly Jazz, Latin and Classical piano. (A sophisticated pianist to say the least!)
In his formidable years, his father taught Christopher and started him on the piano at 5 years old. He was classically trained at 7 yrs old by the Master pianist David Tong from the Julliard School in New York City. As time passed, Christopher grew musically at a rapid pace, studying with the great Jazz pianist Eldar Djangirov and Zacai Curtis. Â
He has played Madison Square Garden 3 times, entertained for Senators, and performed for the United States Army with a song he wrote for Veterans called “The War Song An American Hero.” He was the youngest pianist to play once a week at the Jazz Standard in NYC with the Youth Orchestra at 11 yrs old and has played at many NYC comedy clubs opening up for headliner comedians.
Christopher is truly a gifted musician. He is one of a kind.
Today at 16 years old, Christopher McGinnis is a busy young teen to say the least. His newest accomplishment is his alliance with the Catholic Archdiocese of NY. He is one of the youngest church organist and singers hired at age 15 and currently works for three different churches.

This past year we have introduce a number of new artists originating from Canada and with each new artist comes a whole new excitement!Â
Twelve year old Cameron Molloy, while new to some is no newbie to the music entertainment world.Â He has already proven himself not only as a sensational vocalist but also as a young performing artist.Â His NEW Music Video â€œStirling Crescent Moonâ€ is evidence of this, clearly demonstrating his charm and ability to draw in his audience through his singing prowess and camera appeal!
While this article serves as his introduction here, Cameron is already showcased on the Radio Interview Page in his interview with Bruce Owens from Good Morning Hudson Valley Radio.Â [ti_audio name=”Cameron Molloy”]
Â Cameron Molloyâ€™s New Music Video!
The Early Years
Itâ€™s reported that Cameron has always had a love for music. His parents shared that as an infant, the best way to stop him from crying was to sing a song to him. Doing this would instantly calm him and he would soon be happy and smiling.
You could also find him typically tapping on the family piano or playing the plastic guitar his grandmother gave him fascinated by the sounds that it made.
They also noted that Cameron seemed to have a knack for remembering lyrics and would easily sing songs from start to finish. His early influence was mostly country and folk music which was kindled from carting him along to numerous folk festivals. These early musical adventures also exposed him to a great variety of musical styles and genres.
Thus far school seems to come easy for Cameron. He is largely an â€œAâ€ student, but tends to be very social in class. Like most young artists, heâ€™s trying various ways to express his â€œcreativityâ€ much to the chagrin of his teachers. His best subject is Math and his friends regard him as a math whiz.
