Going for It: Peter Stelling on Sparking Passion

These days, people are scrambling to their feet as they hurriedly make their way to the top. And while some competition can be an impetus for progress, too much of it can make one lose sight of what is really important. For this reason, Peter Stelling vowed to live a life that keeps his soul on fire. 

Having gone through his fair share of ups and downs, Peter Stelling realized that everything boils down to passion. As a matter of fact, it took him several twists and turns before he mustered up the courage to go after his dreams. It was not until he finally listened to the voice within that he sparked joy, not only in his life but also in the lives of those around him.

According to Peter Stelling, pursuits and endeavors are made more meaningful if they come from the heart. He also adds that nothing matters more to him than being able to do what he loves. True enough, success is much sweeter if it stems from a place of happiness. 

Hailing from the city of Orlando in Florida, Peter Stelling took off to breathe life into his goals and aspirations. Besides gaining recognition for his works as a singer-songwriter, model, and actor, he is also pursuing a degree in Supervision and Management. And always being ready to step up his game, the multifaceted figure shows that he is a force to be reckoned with. 

Born and bred in a competitive household, Peter Stelling grew up trying to keep with his four older brothers. As a result, he developed the notion that anything falling short of the best will never be good enough. And having this mindset for a very long time, Peter created a world that revolved around competition. However, this only made his wins bitter and his losses even heavier. 

Growing tired of trying to be competitive all the time, Peter Stelling broke free from his unrealistic expectations and stayed grounded. As a result, he learned the value of practice and the beauty of patience. And with this newfound approach, it dawned on him that there is more to life than being the best. Instead, it is all about being content with seemingly little victories. 

Today, Peter Stelling has become a beacon of confidence and self-fulfillment. After years of struggling with self-doubt and questioning his strengths, he could eventually see what he is truly capable of. And through the challenges he hurdled, he pushes producers, directors, photographers, creators, actors, models, artists, musicians, and all other passion-driven individuals to move forward. 

Looking back on his journey, Peter Stelling took a leap of faith by going after a life that speaks volumes about his purpose and passion. And using his past experiences that accumulated many lessons and realizations, he inspires and encourages others to choose the path that makes them light up. 

Had Peter given up on the things that resonated with his core and soul, he would not have gone this far in his career. Indeed, the passion-driven individual has proven that the best things happen to those who believe and fight against all the odds.

From US Service to the Grammys: How Half Deezy Kept an Unwavering Passion for Years

For so many years, several artists have made their mark and sealed their legacies in the music industry. Their impact was significant enough to become standards in the industry, and their names are nearly always brought up when an up and coming artist shows up on the block.

Bands like The Beatles and Queen are two of the biggest names that come up when a new band is making the rounds. Bruno Mars has a vocal range that many people say is reminiscent of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. While comparisons can be very flattering, others hope to build a career all on their own and step out of those comparisons. Luckily for artist Half Deezy, he has the voice that stands out on its own.

Half Deezy is American and Filipino, born in the state of California. Growing up, he moved around a lot owing to his father’s occupation as a Marine. They were only able to settle down once his father got out. He grew up with a dream of making music. Although he had no musical background, Deezy was adamant about learning on his own.

Because change was constant in his early life, along with music, one of the few consistent things that remained with Deezy was movies. He was always fascinated by movie magic, watching the behind the scenes footage in the DVDs he could get his hands on. The three genres that stuck with him the most were horror, drama, and dark comedy. These genres would later play a significant role in his storytelling and film making abilities.

Before he worked in the entertainment industry, Deezy served in the United States Army. He would remain in services for ten years, planning life after his service. Once he got out, he set out to chase his passion. 

Owing to his freedom, Deezy was able to obtain a Bachelor’s Degree in Digital Cinematography from the Los Angeles Film School as well as writing his songs, producing his music, and pushing his brand. While it may sound tiresome, Deezy’s passion for both was able to push himself forward. 

While he has been making a name for himself in the media industry, Deezy has already become a big name in the music industry. He is primarily known for his distinct voice, making it impossible to confuse him with other artists. His success was not an overnight story, as he had been looked over for many years. Regardless, he continued to shape his sound and sharpened his lyrical skills. Since he launched his career, he has opened for various artists including Bone Thugs N Harmony, Lil White, and G-Eazy. 

Deezy is now a professional member of the Grammy Awards for four years and is known for featuring in songs with Platinum artists. Among the many names he has worked with are Bone Thugs N Harmony members Bizzy Bone and Lazy Bone, Baby Eazy E, Dogg Pound Gangstas, and Stat Quo. Some of the notable works he has been included in are Tonight, Good Day, Soulja Boy Diss, and They Hate U.S. All of which are available on streaming platforms.

Singer/Songwriter Kenny Peters Sparks Interest with His Upcoming Book

While his ultimate passion will always be his music and songwriting, popular tenor Kenny Peters is taking on another challenge: to finish writing his four books that are on different stages of completion. His upcoming book titled Discrediting God has unexpectedly sparked interest and dialogues among many avid readers after seeing the title. Encouraging people to engage in a healthy discourse is one of Kenny’s primary objectives in narrating his interesting life story. 

Through his books, Kenny is trying out another opportunity to reach out to many people who go through life without fully addressing their traumas from the past. His past may have been hurtful and traumatic, but it is also a story of survival, hope, and self-healing. Aside from witnessing the divorce of his parents, he was also physically abused while he was living with his non-biological father. 

He also struggled with his mental health issues that remained undiagnosed for a lengthy amount of time. His struggle almost ended with a suicide attempt many years ago. In 2008, Kenny finally got diagnosed to have bipolar disorder and received proper therapy and medication to help him manage his condition. As he continued to journey toward his recovery, Kenny started to come out in the open about his mental health with the intention to provide support for people who are going through the same predicament. 

“It’s probably one of the best feelings I’ve ever had—knowing that by sharing what’s been the worst of my life, someone else may find their path. It makes us all winners,” Kenny explains.  

Aside from completing his four books in the making, Kenny is also looking forward to creating at least two more albums in the coming years. Getting a Grammy nomination is also one of his dreams. More than the awards, however, is experiencing release through his songwriting—the freedom to write about the horrors of his past and present journey as a proud gay person without fear of being rejected. 

There is only so much adversity that one person can take in a lifetime, but some have had the misfortune of going through traumatic and hurtful experiences one after the other. While this is a reality for so many people all over the world, the human spirit has the potential to be stronger than the most painful circumstances life has to offer. Such incomparable strength and will to survive can be learned from artist, entrepreneur, and mental health advocate Kenny Peters.

Aside from his music, he is also opening himself up to opportunities of appearing in bigger films in a supporting role. Kenny also eyes the possibility of focusing on being a producer, knowing that he has so much that he can pass on to up-and-coming filmmakers. 

Kenny Peters is a living testament to how things can still work out in the end despite having a bad start. He is also showing the world that the past does not define who a person will become. It’s all a matter of choice and choosing to survive and thrive was the one thing that opened rich opportunities to him. Learn more about Kenny Peters by visiting his website.

Rapper, Singer-Songwriter, and Producer Traviee Makes Way to the Music Industry With the Heart of a Gemini

Artists want to produce a craft that impacts. Many artists, particularly singer-songwriters, break sweat day and night to come up with songs that matter to them and their audiences. They make an imprint on the lives of audiences when their outputs overflow with authenticity, passion, and intention. The songs of Travis MacAuthur Sailor, aka Traviee, are made with the same. 

Traviee raps, sings, and records his songs. The American musical artist from Jacksonville, Arkansas, is steadily making a name for himself as a unique artist with a profound taste for music. His songs are a mix of rap, hip-hop, R & B, and gospel. This versatility of Traviee for various genres of music owes to his experiences in the past. 

The musical pursuit of Traviee started early on in his life. He always had a passion for music. As a 10-year-old child, young Travis found a huge inclination for the creative process of music. He would spend his day listening to songs, understanding the message, and eventually making his own. While others his age were busy playing or going about their days outside jamming with friends, Traviee was lost into the melodies of songs. 

Traviee grew up with supportive parents. As his biggest motivators, his mother and father fostered a safe space and gave ample time for Traviee to develop his skills. His mother, Martha Sailor, is an acclaimed singer-songwriter as well. His mother used her incredible pipes to breathe songs that echoed the halls of the Church where his family belonged to. As a professional, Martha Sailor had a passion for collaborating with some of the most popular music icons like King of Pop Michael Jackson. His father, Craig Sailor, on the other hand, does not fall short of their family pursuit as well. Craig played for New Jersey’s New Frontier Gospel Band back in 2004 as a bass guitar player.

With a family of artists, Traviee stood on the right ground. He assumed the name ‘Traviee’ when he decided to take his career to new levels. In April of this year, Traviee dropped his first album titled Heart of a Gemini. The intro of the album, “Martha,” is a 24-second message of encouragement from his mother. “This is your mom calling you. I want you to know I love you so much, you got a heart of a Gemini,” says his mother. “With God on your side, you can do anything.” Other songs in the album include “Heart of a Gemini,” “Burn With Anger,” “Where The Love At,” “God Is Real,” and many more. Listeners were stunned by his performance. 

The songs are available in major streaming platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Deezer, etc. In due course, Traviee will join the band of successful industry professionals. He believes that the intention for his music and his passion will give him his big break.

As an artist, Traviee wants his song to resonate with his audiences and uplift others through the mixture of different genres and his own style that he has honed for years. He is a firm believer of God, and so, he hopes that the music he produces will help others spiritually. Traviee dreams that his songs of positivity will reach the ears of everyone across the globe. For more information about Traviee, follow his YouTube account.
