* You can check out music videos for nine songs on that album on Deejay’s YouTube channel. Check out the most recent for a song called “One” below.
* His other major releases include an album called “Rebirth” from 2013 and a 2017 holiday album called “An Unplugged Christmas.”
* Its a chance to portray his own artistry that has him most excited about The Voice opportunity, he told News Channel 8 in Tampa.
* “I’m just grateful to be able to share my gift and just show who I am as an artist, not a character. I get to really show who I am and show the light and the gift that god’s blessed me with.”
