His openness and awareness to all kinds of music, combined with Gospel, heavy Funk, jazz, rhythm and blues, and classical influence, laid the foundation for the well rounded, extremely gifted musician and singer he is today.

Victor. Thank you for the positive review of 'Robbing Me Blind'. You'd have to ask my producer Tony about the recording equipment etc. I'm basically a song-writer. Thanks once again. David

Hello Victor, Thanks so much for you review of "Step Into your Blessing". I had a chance to listen to your music. OMG! your music is awesome. Jazz is my favorite. I want to put everything under that genre. Just curious though, What made you say the genre was Rap? What can I do to improve my songs?

It's more the idea from the track "Step into your Blessing" that bass is such a powerful mood grabber, and your vocals have a perfect mix of harmony, I should have not said Rap with out my reason explained. my bad, It just reminds me of a dance christian war cry which should be in more christ centered music. a very well music mix again. I'm a groove monster, and love that kind of bass drive in a tune. Keep on Keeping On!
