How did you make the transition from an actor to a recording artist?
“I started off acting as you know, which is ironic to me as I never thought I’d amount to anything back then. I had trouble even standing on my two feet, but I wanted to learn. I was hungry to learn. I made a bet to myself saying that if I could learn everybody’s language, not physical language like Spanish, French, but more of an empathetic language, I wanted to be able to transcend the thoughts and feelings I could never have had the time to understand. Because that would have taken forever, I wanted to try to find a loophole so that I could be able to understand everybody empathetically and feel their energy. If I didn’t have anything in my “attribute box” like them, where I couldn’t put myself in their shoes by any means at all, it made me realize that I needed to extrapolate to manifest their energy to find their uniqueness and personality. I needed to be able to at least understand their acknowledged empathetic language in order for me to be happy.
If I can make the character have undertones of the story as in like the rudimentary elements. Happiness, sadness, and anger; all the steps of different emotions, and mixing together in certain ways, then there you have the empathetic language. Making music has been a lot of fun while giving me more happiness, but it also is giving me a little bit of money. So, if I can make music, make my own feelings, put it out on a tabloid, and then show it to other people, that’s the ultimate goal.”
