In a world where promiscuity, materialism, and the exploitation of money takes precedence over love, musicianship, regard for self-worth and respect, Bj stands as the representation of a revolution for these positive qualities. It was during the tender age of four when Bj realized his musical potential and began to explore his gifts of singing, dancing, and art. Being a negative product of the streets of South Florida would have been an easy conquest to pursue, however, he used the common behavior associated with the neighborhoods where he grew up as an incentive to do the right thing and encourage his peers to also make better choices. This monumental move would cause him, later in life, to become an activist for the productivity of our youth and young adult communities instead of perpetuating the pattern of indecision and deficiency of self-worth and self respect.
It was in 1993 that Bj began to venture out and was introduced to other bands, ensembles, and musical groups that would inevitably cause him to seriously commit to his craft. He was exposed to and performed many musical genres on the outside of his church affiliation. Classical, Opera, Jazz, Rhythm & Blues, Gospel, and Soul were just a few of the genres which caused him to develop and cultivate his own unique soulful style and ability. Bj used his inspiration and compassion for music to become both a committed writer and skilled vocalist. It is no wonder why Bj has been refferred to as the epitome of a Gentleman in Gospel & Soul, appropriately coined by Bj as the "Gospo-soul" movement.
