Biography

I am a young up and coming artist who has a passion for music. I have been influenced by my parents who are both musically gifted. I sang in public for the first time when I was in kindergarten and I was hooked. I am an honor roll student. I have already accomplished so much in my life. In 2007 I was a finalist to appear on "Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader". For two years in a row-2008 & 2009-I was the Swartz Creek Idol vocal winner in my respective divisions. I am a starting quarterback on my football team. This past spring, I took part in the People to People World Leadership Forum in Washington, DC. I was there for a week with other student leaders. The experiences have touched me for the rest of my life. I just wrote and recorded my first single, Follow Your Heart. This song was inspired by my good friend Payton who lost her courageous battle with cancer in 2008.

Lyrics

Follow Your Heart

Written By: Alexander Ray/Katrina Hawkins/Marshall Block

Follow Your Heart

I want you to know
It was planned out long ago
I want you to see
This is where we are meant to be
I want you to feel
Time will soon reveal
You know where to start
(Spoken) Follow your heart

I keep my mind open
Soon you’ll see what I mean
There’s only one way
As we step into the night
You need to follow your heart
And let there be light
I can’t wait no more

I want you to know
It was planned out long ago
I want you to see
This is where we are meant to be
I want you to feel
Time will soon reveal
You know where to start
(Spoken) Follow your heart

When there’s pure devotion
You will find no in-between
There’s only one way
As we step into the night
You need to follow your heart
And let there be light
I can’t wait no more

I want you to know
I want you to see
I want you feel
You know where to start
(Spoken) Follow your heart

Our passion is unbroken
The pieces remain unseen
There’s only one way
As we step into the night
You need to follow your heart
And let there be light
I can’t wait no more

I want you to know
It was planned out long ago
I want you to see
This is where we are meant to be
I want you feel
Time will soon reveal
You know where to start
Follow your heart
You know where to start
Follow your heart
