“When you Live Beyond the labels you have worn….All My People Go!”
Watch the Story of Camp!
They came from every corner of the world. Â They were all different yet they all had one thing in common. Â They each won one of the 20 coveted spots awarded each year to the Prodigy Campâ€”a place where the worldâ€™s top 12-18 year old directors, writers, performers, photographers, songwriters get a chance every summer to come together to hone their storytelling skills and find their creative voice.Â Â Â
Each year this site is honored to recommend a young artist to participate in Prodigy Camp held in Washington State, USA, under the direction of Film Director/Producer Rick Stevenson.Â Â This past summer the amazing young singer, performer/ musician Thilo Berndt was awarded a full scholarship to attend Prodigy Camp 2012.Â Â Thilo exclaimed;
â€œThis camp was one of the best things that ever happened to me!â€
Through the camp experience Thilo was introduced to the amazing singer, musician, and producer David Ryan Harris who helped Thilo become a creative songwriter and storyteller.Â When the camp concluded Thilo traveled to Los Angeles, California to meet with David and work on some original songs.Â Thilo is currently working on a number of originals that can be used as demos.Â Of course his fans all hope that this compilation of music will soon turn into a CD that Thilo can share with all of us!
While I canâ€™t yet share what I was privileged to privately hear, I can tell you that Thilo â€˜s new sound is beyond amazing!Â His creativity and distinct musical sound is about to turn the heads of many professionals in the industry.
I caught up with Thilo this past week and asked him to tell us a little about his summer adventure. The following is Thiloâ€™s story, in his own words, about his amazing life changing summer experience at Prodigy Camp.
