Born in Pennsylvania, raised in Tennesee and now residing in Fort Lauderdale, Star has performed in more than 10 countries, including the United Nations’ headquarters, and participated in Super Bowl LIV campaigns with NFL Stars Larrry Fitzgerald, Jarvis Landry, Mark Sanchez. Star’s music has also been featured in France’s top-rated reality TV series Les Anges 9. With a passion for making a social impact through his music, Star has helped over 500 teens in foster care write and record original music via his proprietary ‘Impact Songwriting’ workshops. “Music is the kind of medicine people enjoy taking, so I write prescriptions based on the symptoms around me,” said Star.
