NBC's "The Voice" Star, Moses Stone, To Release Anticipated Debut Mixtape "Resilient"
Courtesy Yo! PR.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE // Known for his electrifying and stunning performances at NBC's hit TV show "The Voice: Season 2" (2012) where Moses Stone entertained millions of viewers nationwide with his unmatchable persona and dynamic stage presence, gained him the respect from music fans and worldwide superstar Christina Aguilera, who picked Moses for her team. Stone was the first emcee/singer ever in the history of "The Voice".
Fast forward, the aspiring and much talented Washington DC born and Hollywood based rapper/singer is excited to officially announce the release of his highly anticipated debut mixtape, "Resilient", which will be available for download on November 13, 2012.
"My 'Resilient' mixtape was based on the last year of my life. I've had success, failure, and experienced the good, bad and the ugly that the entertainment industry comes with: Coming off a hit TV show like 'The Voice', making history being the first of my kind having it all, to then fighting to keep the momentum alive on your own, getting out of a bad deal and situation and come back stronger and more knowledgeable about the snakes, fake and real people in the industry. People will find out the real story about my time on 'The Voice' and what happened afterwards as well. This is my real life! I am 'Resilient'."
Spearheaded by the first single, "Pray For Them" (click here to listen), which is already making a huge impact online, the craze for Moses Stone continues after he rocked "The Voice" stage and the breakthrough success of his debut runaway single, "My Moment", which caused a whirlwind on iTunes earlier this year.
His mixtape, "Resilient", is an audacious masterpiece of energy and sound. With the mixtape days away from dropping, Moses Stone is ready to show his undeniable talent with an onslaught of new singles and this is only the beginning for this rising star who is already proving that his sound is unmatched. And with good reason, Stone has kept his name ringing from coast to coast, even after "The Voice", with his scorching singles and he is refusing to slow down from his increasing momentum.
Moses Stone is a Pop artist that incorporates elements of Hip-Hop, Pop and Motown, as a rapper, singer, and piano player. It's what fuses his unique new flavor and style, which is a tremendously welcome change as well as a breath of fresh air.
Moses has had an early start of success at a young age known as "Young Moses" (aka That Dude Young Moses), an acclaimed performer who has appeared on MTV's "Say What Karaoke" and BET's hit show 106 & Park's "Wild Out Wednesday" where he earned first place in both competitions as well as the respect of the audience. Furthermore, Moses performed live on Showtime for the main event of the boxing match between Lateef Kayode vs. Antonio Tarver, walking Kayode out to the ring performing his single "My Moment".
Moses also strongly believes in community awareness and actively participates in various fundraisers and charity events including, Kicks 4 Kids, and fundraising for domestic violence and abuse.
