He knew even before


“More than 2,000 years ago someone was thinking of me, fighting for my life, fighting for my bloodline. Fighting for my health, my finances . . . fighting for my destiny.

One must make sure that their motivation is pure before picking up the mic, the guitar, a paintbrush, putting on the dance shoes, sitting down before the drums, or placing their hands on the piano.
