I heard a variety of music while growing up. My parents both sang gospel and played Motown records around the house. I was also heavily influenced by my older brother’s musical collection. I remember old K-Tel compilations having everything from Wild Cherry, The Silvers and Bill Conti compositions. I’m still heavily into a variety of music. I like to listen to the hair metal bands of the '90s and many new current pop acts. I still like a variety of music.

Zap hate and replace it with love. "Hate be gone, poof!"
