Why Do i love Singing/Rapping and Writing Songs?

Well before i tell you why? let me tell you where my talents come from.

Where did i get the talent to sing? well i was born with it, and you could say it was passed down through my generation to me. The Robinson's are a family of singers, my mom,dad,sister and other relatives are great singers,and to be real honest, my dad's the best out of them all,from my point of view ofcourse. So yeah basically that's how i got that blessed talent. Where did the rapping talent come from,honestly i don't know,never heard any family member or relative rapping, i can tell you who inspired me to start rapping though. Have you ever watched the show "Let It Shine"? ofcourse you must have seen it,if it's even once,nobody can really live their life and not watch such a magnificently incredible show, but anyways let me get straight to the point, that is the show that changed my life. I think i just exagerated, the show was great but it's not what changed my life and inspired me to start rapping, it was actually the insanely incredible and awesome rapper who starred the show. I don't think i have to say his name, you must know who it is,am i right? or maybe you don't even know,maybe you are thinking of some one else,so let me tell you who. His name is "Tyler James Williams" A.K.A. "Everybody Hates Chris" yes tha't him and i love his rapping, after hearing him rap i had to do the same. I honestly don't know where my writing song's skills came from,maybe its from my mom,because she can write great poems and stories.
Now let me get to the part you all have been waiting for: Why do i love Singing/Rapping and Writing Songs?

 Why? is the question you ask. i'll soon answer let me tell you short story first.
My Dad's a Pastor and my Mom's a Teacher,both are christians,obviously,but anyways, growing up in church singing was a must,i'm not talking about singing with everyone in a chorus,no, infact i'm talking about the church choir, my parents knew we could sing,when i say "we" i mean me and my sis, so because we were blessed with God given talents we had to use them and honour God. We sang on the choir from a early teenage year and even when the choir was no more,because the young people slowly stop attending church, we still had to sing and represent our church at special events,we were the only persons available too because our members at times don't like traveling,you could say they love freeness and vehicles don't run on water,so it was mostly us as a family. Ofcourse we we are shy to sing on the choir,as well as to sing at a event,but we had to,so we have to brave up each time. I on the other had wasn't always shy though,infact when i was younger i used to give a special at my church on a regular basis, i loved singing and i was fearless,when did that change? well it changed when i hit the teenage years,shockijng right?yeah tha's exactly what happened. Now why do i like singing? well it's just a joy to sing,when i sing i just feel like i'm on top of the world. When i'm performing on stage at different churches the first few seconds i feel nervous,but after that everything's okay and i feel awesome, having the audience look at me and feel touched by the song, is a great feeling,the best feeling though is after when people commend me and give me compliments about my singing. That basically is why i love singing. Why i love rapping is because it seperates me from others, not everyone can rap, but when you can, everybody looks on you different. I like when somebody hears me rapping and their like "Wow you're talented" or "Wow you are awesome" or as Jamaican's would say "Yuh hawd enuh yute". Rapping is incredible. After hearing Tyler's Songs on Let It Shine i started rapping and never/will never stop.
Why i love Writing Songs is because it's a way of expressing my self. When i write songs i don't just write to make a song, i write to express my feelings, i may not or may be afraid of expressing myself in person so i put it into song,so every song is telling a story of my life, the whole song might not be,but parts of it is. At times i feel misserable,angry,anoyed or hurt and writing or listening a song i wrote and record makes me feel better. My music is like my own little world, it's the one place that no one can bother me. When i write a song don't take it for granted and joke it out, I TAKE MY MUSIC VERY SERIOUS.
Well i've answered the question and you've learned more about me,now why not subscribe to my posts and comment and share yoour view on my story. Thanks for reading

My Inspiration

My Inspiration Comes From.....?
Well, when asked the question,"Where does your inspiration comes from?" the first thing that i think about is what or who inspires me. I get my inspiration solely from everthing and everyone around me. Let's put them into two different categories and speak on them.
Everything Around Me:
When i say that i get my inspiration from everything around me i'm not specifically talking  for eg. to look on an object and just write a song about it, no, infact let me clarify what i mean, if i see a person being mistreated in a relationship that inspirires me to write a song about "what people do for love". If i see a couple and the love between them is unconditional, that inspires me to write a song about " the perfect girlfriend,perfect lover, true love etc." So basically everthing i see happening around me inspires me, it's like i can just feel the emotions of others and understand what they're experiencing, it's a blessing and a curse at times. The blessings part would be that you see them looking so joyful and you yourself feel joyful,the curse part now is that if you see a person looking really sad or crying and you can almost feel and understand what they're going through because you start feeling the same way instantly, yes that's exactly how i am, Shocking right? the other things around me that inspire me are Songs(whether it be Gospel,Hip Hop, R&B etc. as long as it's a clean song), videos(Funny,music etc),news, movies(Speicfically romance) and events,everthing that takes place around me. yeah i guess i can say that's it for"Everthing around me".
Everyone around me:
Now we are at the more fun part of my post,so read on.
When i say everyone around me,that should tell you alot, but, wait a minute, i don't exactlywrite songs about everyone, i mostly focus on people that i have a emotional connection with or otherwise know as people people:
I Like, Love, Rate as a Friend or Family, i could just leave it there but,no, i'm going to speak on them differently because i know you all would love that, expecially the love and like part,am i right?
I Like
This is the most interesting one of them all. Have you ever met someone and it's like, at that moment they are the only person you see,like there's a spotlight on them? yeah those are the greatest moments in my life, we all have those incredible moments. So yeah when i see or meet a girl i really like, i'm inspired to write a song about her or how i feel when i see her or when i'm around her. Please note i'm not a guy who goes around liking and running down every girl who looks cute though ,no, i'm the type of guy who looks beyond the outer beauty, i focus on the inner beauty,her personality, i look on the inner qualities that seperates her from other girls. An example of a girl i like and would write a song about is: a girl that's calm,inteligent,talented kind and considerate.Those girls inspire me to write songs the most, ofcourse i like the girls who are cute &sexy etc. etc. so no offense to you other ladies, if i was to write a song about you girls it wouldn't be that clean and i only like making clean songs, but there are times though when i do write songs about you ladies, all i do is just try and keep it clean. There are times when i meet a girl who can write songs or poems like me, and listening to their words just inspres me, sometimes they are even better at it than me but that doesn't make me jealous or grudgeful, it just pushes me to improve more on my skills. You Know the other day,not long ago, i met two girls who are so talented,one of them can write some incredible poems and the other can write some extraordinary songs. I met these girls at a youth meeting i attend on fridays, the one who can write great poems is kind of shy and had stop writing for a while but i told her she's very talented because i could see it, i only heard the first part of one of her poems and i just knew that there's more to her than meets the eyes, so i encouraged her to continue writing,and ofcourse she did. I eventually heard the rest of the poem and it was break taking,she later told me that i revived the drive she had for writing poems and i felt very happy to know that i helped her. The other girl now she's shy also and very talented when it comes to writing songs,maybe even more than me, i heard apart of one of her songs and loved it, i told her i want to do a collaberation song with her,hopefully one day i will. She told me that night while i was speaking her that she writes a new song every day and that she can write a song about anything, isn't that amazing,she also has over two hundred songs, at that moment i was shock and totally inspired to go harder. These two girls have inspired me more than they think.
I Love 
I guess from you hear those two words "I Love" you must have figured out the story behind it, so i won't be long in this part of my post. Okay, so have you ever been inlove with someone and you feel like they're the one,Mrs Right,Mr Right, Mr/Mrs Perfect? ofcourse you have, unless you are a kid or an alien or just mentally ill,i'm sorry no disrespect,but anyways yeah i've been in love more than once and the feelings i get when i am is hard to explain but it inspires me to write a good love song. You know how you just can't stop thinking about that person, everytime you hear their name you smile, yes that's the feeling i'm talking about. I write the best love songs when i'm in love,when that love ends though i write heart broken songs, yes each time i was in love i got pieces of my heart broken,but that hasn't stop me from loving again, i still continue to fall in love,but the difference each time is that,it's harder and takes a longer time for me to fall for some one. So basically when i'm in love with some one i can write great love songs.
I Rate As A Friend
What can i say,i have alot of friends but few true ones. The true ones are totally awesome, they're more than i could ask for, always there for me, they listen to me, make me laugh, yeah they're just perfect and i'm not afraid to say i love them. I even consider them as my family, because when you think about it they're there for me more than my blood family at times,they understand me more also. So yeah my totally awesome true friends inspire me to write songs about friendship and respect.
Honestly i love my family, the real ones ofcourse, not the ones who don't care about me, yes i do have family like that,i won't lie family who are inconsiderate but i won't get into that,leave that for another story. So my real family i love you guys so much, you make me laugh and you show me at times that you care for me. I could have mentioned some of my real family or friends i consider as family names but i rather not because i don't want anyone to feel left out. so basically my real family inspire me to write songs about respect,love, and true family.
That's my story about my inspiration and where it comes from. I'm now working on a song about true friends, i also wrote a song about my dad and about this girl that i really like but she's taken so we can't be together,yet, you'll hear those soon so don't worry,in the meanwhile log on to my songs page and listen the songs i uploaded. oh yeah i forgot to mention i'm working on a collaberation with my sister now which you'll soon hear, i did a collab with my Cuz JayRomeand my Brother Kenneth already so you can check out those, look out for more collaberation songs with difference artists,Coming Soon

My Awesome Song About A Shy Guy Expressing His Feelings To A Girl Through Song

I entered this song into a Rap Contest,Hope i Win! :)

The Start Of My Music Career

Well, like every famous Artist there's a story behind their Music,where the questions asked are "How?when? and Why?" Read clearly and you'll see how those questions are answered:

Let's Go, i started my Music Career in the Month of March,2011. At this point in my life i was strugling with the Stress of School(CXC exams, S.B.A. Dedlines coming up and Troublesome schoolmates), Relationship Problems and my Family so writing songs was the one thing that kept me happy and helped me to forget about my stress.But before i continue on that let's rewind a couple months, where i'll tell you apart of the story of 'My First Love', don't worry i promise you it ties in with everything. okay so we're in the month of August,2010, and it's the last night of camp,Banquet Night, i was dressed in a silky smooth suit, white jacket matched with my white pants and a orange shirt and tie, i was the most well dressed young man on that night. i was a shy non popular guy though so i had no date and few friends,however, i wasn't going to let this night be ruined because of my shyness, so i decided since i have little friends i shall join my sister's little group. The reason for doing so wasn't just because i had little friends though, it was also because a girl was in this group that i had a little crush on, her name was Stacey-Ann. So we all had fun on Banquet Night, took some pictures, ate and danced etc. etc The night ended and the morning of which we had to go home had arrived, we said our little goodbyes, i collected some numbers of the few friends i had and then we all went on our way. A few days later i decided it's time to make my move on my crush/sister's close friend(who was apparently 3 years older than me at the time and i didn't know untill lateron), i called her on the phone spoke to her about how i felt about her and as time passed we started to build a wonderful relationship together. after a couple months i fell in love with her,because she was my first love i felt like she was the one and everything is right on track..We both were in love, spoke to each other on the phone everyday,mostly because we were a couple miles apart,this was a long distance relationship. everything was totally awesome and right on track, but, for a while, the relationship started to have alot rocky times, but let's not get into that, it's another story for another time. So anyways when we fell in love my inspiration to write poems was born, i wrote a couple poems first specifically for her, then continued writng more and more until lateron in the first part of the year 2011 i wrote my first song, which was for her, entitled "My Love" solely made with the first poems i made, i sang it for her and ofcourse and she loved it. That was the start of my writing career but not my Music Career, to be specific that was when i started writing poems. Anyways we're now back at the point of the part of the story where you were so antiously waiting to hear, so here it is, months passed and that relationship came to a downfall, it became more complicated than before in this month of March, we were not talking to each other around this period and my second song "Can't Stop Loving U" was created,yes this was when my Music Career started, after writing that song i deicided it's time to write more songs and also record them,because i was like "Wow i can write songs,mad!".  I didn't have a professional recording software at this time though,infact the software i used was "Sound Recorder" yes it's the stupid software that came with Windows XP. I know you're wondering "How did he use that to record a full song" so let me tell you how, well honestly i only had 1 riddim at this time, i got it from a Rising Stars CD i got some time back,the last track was a riddim and it was what i used,so anyways what i did to record my two songs was, open the riddim in Windows Media player then first i pressed record on"Sound Recorder" then played the riddim,afterwhich i hold my mic close to the pc speaker and sang,then click stop when i'm finish and that was it ,shocking right? So after recording those songs i later decided to step it up a notch, i made a slide show video with the two songs, oh also around this time i was learning Video Editing, so yeah after i made that video i uploaded it on youtube,which i later regret doing,it's still there to this day because i lost my password for that Youtube Account. No i'm not going to tell you how to find that video! looking back i realised i was so stupid to do so. I got alot better as time passed. a few weeks after writing and Recording my third song "Respect Everybody" i decided to take a little break in Recording,Why? because i got more sensable and realised my method of recording was stupid and "Stone Aged", i didn't stop writing though, i continued writing now and then,until the year of 2013 when i got the awesome software "Audacity"and started making better and more professional  recordings. In this year i started making really awesome songs, i also learned to rap. tThis is the year in which my Music Career took of fully. The First song that i created was disregarded because i realised that it was lame, i edited the second and third ones though and record them back over more professionally.Right now i'm working on some more hard core rapping songs,please note all my songs are all clean songs, i don't write crap and i don't support slack songs. so i guess that sums it up that's how,when and why?, the start of my Music Career. it doesn't end there though there's more to come from me. Look out for my new songs coming out soon,also my first Album which will be out in December of this year, Subscibe to my Youtube Channel, Add Me on Facebook and Most importantly make your comments on my story which i just told you.
