Even when I signed my first major record deal with Sony Music as a teenager while I was working with Grammy Award winning professionals on my projects, my father encouraged me to stay in school while I worked in the entertainment industry and emphasized the value of a well-rounded education. His advice stuck with me, and I hope that I can inspire young up and coming recording artists to stay in school and not drop out, despite what success they may acquire in the industry. Knowledge is valuable.”
