Everyone keep your eyes on Joshua this young singer is going to do wonders. At eleven years he has a fabulous voice and has no problem singing anything. You will be amazed when you listen.( I know I was ).
Joshua lives in Texas , U.S.A. He started singing about two years of age , then began to sing in public at eight. He has performed at Bay Fest , local television programs , sports games and area festivals. In the fourth grade he auditioned along-side eighteen others from Texas for a spot in the ” The American Boychoir School in Princeton, N.J.” Joshua came out on top and was excepted . They put together a fundraiser for him to go and got to sing along-side pop singer ” Paula DeAnda ” he was very excited about that. Unfortunately he wasn`t able to stay there but a short time , due to the economy and had to move back to Texas . How ever while he was there he did get the opportunity to perform with the ” New York Philharmonic ” at the Lincoln Center in New York . This set back of having to leave N.J. has not stopped Joshua ,_ he is going to be on a T.V show called the Nashville Spotlight. He will be leaving this month for the tapeing ( once the airing date is set I will post it ).
Joshua not only sings , but is learning the guitar and writes songs. His dad , Nick helps him , being a director of music and teaches the guitar you couldn`t get a more perfect helper. The video at the top of the page is of Joshua singing a song written by his dad ” I`m Gonna Stand ” and originaly played by his dad and band, but Joshua changed the melody a bit , as you can tell when you listen it worked out fabulous. For me once I heard this song I couldn`t pull myself away. Above is another original song by him and his dad ” Just Be Me “.
I had the opportunity to talk with Joshua and Nick they are very nice people I enjoyed it alot . They are really down to earth and provided all this wonderful information. I did ask Joshua a few questions :
- How does it feel singing in front of a bunch of people ? It feels good. I enjoy when the crowd gets into the song that I am singing. I also like that the crowd is sometimes surprised when I sing. I guess, I don’t look like the way I sound.
- Do you ever get to sing at school for your friends ? Sometimes, when they ask. I’ve sang in front of the whole school a couple of times. That was cool.
- What do you like most about singing and playing the guitar ? I like that I can play whatever I want to. I like that I can do both at the same time.
- What do you dream of doing, music, acting, other? Music is my first choice but I am interested in acting. I’m taking acting lesson right now.
Joshua really does enjoy music and you can tell, he puts all he can into it. I think with his talent he has a very good chance of living his dream.
