I am a singer/songwriter with 4 songs out. That’s almost one song per year, since I’ve officially accepted my position as a full time musician.
The act of saying thank you means more than just expressing gratitude. It tells your spouse, “I acknowledge what you did, I appreciate you, and I am grateful for your love and our marriage”.
Growing up, I was a chubby kid.
According to the world population clock, there are roughly 7.6 billion people living in the world and every single person is different. You are unique just because you exist.
About a year ago a guy reached out to me about wanting to surprise his Fiance by having me sing their first dance song at their wedding. He mentioned that the wedding would be in Puerto Rico, which is where they both were originally from.
I'd be lying to you if I didn't say I was a little nervous about making the trip.

I read through this story the other day and felt like I needed to share it with you. It's incredible how such a short story can be so powerful. After reading this for the first time, I was challenged with the question, "Chris, what is your end goal and what is your definition of success?"

Nothing brings me greater joy than crossing off an item on my to-do list. But at the end of the day, if items have yet to be crossed off, I feel as if a piece of my soul has died.
When season 7 of The Voice wrapped, I found myself in the middle of a new life. Honestly, at times I felt really out of place. From a young age I had my life planned out and I was very content with my plan. However, my time on The Voice threw my plan out the window at lighting speed.
I was in the tenth grade when I went to the gym for the first time and my friend Jon (who was a regular at the gym) was with me to show me the ropes. If I remember correctly, the first workout my pale, skinny, cut-off wearing, body performed was the leg press. Why we started there?
