My Journey as a Latin Pop Artist: Being True to Myself
As a Latin pop artist, my journey has been filled with ups and downs, but it has also been incredibly rewarding. I've learned a lot about myself and my craft along the way, and I've discovered the importance of staying true to who I am as a person and as an artist. In this personal blog, I want to share my story with you and let you into my world as a musician.
From Poet to Musician
Music has always been a big part of my life. I started out writing poems alone in a park about love and my desire to share it with others. But soon I realized that music was the best way to fully express myself. I fell in love with the sound of instruments and the melody, and I knew that this was what I wanted to do with my life.
Creating Music in Unexpected Ways
One of the things I love about music is the unexpected ways in which inspiration can strike. Sometimes, a melody or a lyric comes to me when I'm in the shower, or I'll be playing around with sounds on my laptop and stumble upon something that really excites me. I allow myself to receive these ideas, and I don't stick to just one way of creating art.
Finding My Sound
I feel like my sound is a fusion of Latin urban pop and electronic music. I'm constantly looking for new ways to express myself through different sounds, but I always stay true to my Latin roots. My music is very transparent, and I sing about my personal relationships and how I am feeling at the moment. I want my music to be relatable and honest, and I hope that people can connect with me through my songs.
Being True to Myself
One of the biggest challenges I've faced as a Latin pop artist is my sexuality. I'm openly gay, and there aren't many openly gay Latin artists. For a long time, I felt like I had to hide who I truly was so that others wouldn't notice. But living a double life was killing me inside. I finally decided to move to Los Angeles, where I could be my true self. Through music and meditation, I learned to be more of myself and to stand up for who I am. I realized that when I'm true to myself, others will connect with me through my music, regardless of my sexuality.
The Highlights of My Career
I've been fortunate enough to have some incredible highlights in my career. Performing at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas was a dream come true, and being on national TV during my time on American Idol was an unforgettable experience. I've also had the privilege of performing at one of the biggest festivals in Los Angeles, LA Pride. These moments are ones that I'll always cherish, and they motivate me to keep working hard and pursuing my dreams.
My Message to You
I hope that through my transparency and vulnerability, you can connect with me and my music. I want to encourage you to always be true to yourself and to be open to life, love, and all of the adventures that come with it. I'm currently working on my next single and future releases, and I can't wait to share them with the world when the time is right. I also love sharing positive messages on social media, and I hope that my energy and authenticity resonate with you.
My journey has taught me that patience, persistence, and self-love are essential to success in the music industry. The journey is just as important as the destination, so I encourage you to stay present, meditate, and reflect on your own journey. Remember that you are unique and one of a kind, and that by being true to yourself, you can achieve anything you set your mind to.
