My apologies Nachos.. 😢
It’s been a minute… I’ve been pretty active lately. Living the dream. Getting my life together and conquering fears.
I’ve mentioned in a previous post that 8 months ago. I’ve been performing with award winning artist, ToniSteelz. It’s been quite an amazing and interesting journey. Wait!!! It’s been freakin’ awesome!! 😊🕺🏽🎤🙌🏽 Those that actually know me. Know that I have this peekaboo personality. At times I can be outspoken and giddy. Then crawl into a box and hide. That’s what happens when I have to face a crowd. How the hell do you dream of becoming an entertainer and you get all scared? It’s been a work in progress and it’s coming to fruition. It’s truly amazing when you meet someone and that is understanding can see that you have a gift. That has faith in you and brings you on their journey. I’m working on my grandpa habits. Yes… I like to go to bed early. Especially, if I have to work early in the morning. If we have a show that night and I work that next morning. I’m flying home… Well, the last few times I’ve stayed and hung out. We do need to spend more time together. So Gramps, will let his hair down.
😂 Personally, I need to not box myself up. When I’m going through issues. I’m learning, Chyle.
Can I truly tell y’all that… I’m so happy, thankful and blessed with everything that is happening right now!! It’s hit me!! I’m an artist!!! It’s time to work hard and bust my butt!!!
Anywho, We’ve been performing all over the city together. We’ve been getting great responses. I’ll admit that I’m not powerful vocally. However, I’m getting there. I have a voice, it’s just that I’m finally learning to like it. I’m looking for a good vocal coach. So, whoever is reading. Please reply with info. 😊 It a great feeling when we walk off the stage. Folks walk up to you and tell you how great we all were. It’s like “We kicked butt!! 🙌🏽🙌🏽” Our last performance. We ended the show differently than usual. We usually close out with, “They Don’t Even Know Yet”. Which we did but.. We usually end the song together. This time around, Toni introduced the band, Jelani Maleeq and I. Then she walked off. Then we were singing the hook with the band. Then Maleeq walked off. It was just the band and I. I couldn’t just run off behind him. So, I kept singing. Then we ended. Omg!! It felt good 😊 I felt confident and comfortable. It’s noticeable too!! I’m blessed and honored to be performing and becoming a family with them. ToniSteelz, is a phenomenal artist. I’m not just saying that, either. She’s a Hip Hop artist, an actress, a radio personality, does voice overs, producer, director and motivator. Wait!! A hairstylist as well. Jelani Maleeq, can sing his face off!! I definitely look up to him as an artist and a friend. I’m learning a lot from him. He’s a comedian too!! 😂😂 His singing can bring me to tears. He’s dope!!
ToniSteelz and The Steel Tonez “Jelani Maleeq and Chazz Anthoney “
We get along really well. We’re grown adults with a vision and don’t have time for nonsense. We’re go getters aiming high. We support each other and are a united front. The last few shows we’ve added a few artists. To perform with us.. The Infamous King Of Positivity “IKP” and Verse. Two truly amazing artists!! Each song has a message. You will leave with something. Hope y’all can come and check us out. 😉
Verse, Chazz Anthoney, Jelani Maleeq and IKP. We look like a Boy Band. 😂🙌🏽🕺🏽 I love it!!
Things are moving pretty quickly with us. We have a bunch of shows lined up. Throughout the summer. It’s going to be a blast!! This is truly a blessing! 🙏🏽 I’ll hit y’all with links for upcoming appearances. 🎤
Come through and get to know us… We’re a fun group of friends.
Besides performing together we all have side projects. ToniSteelz is currently working on an upcoming series. I don’t know if I can say too much at the moment. But I’m proud of my sis. 🙌🏽 Recently, she reached out to Jelani and I about having a role on the series. When I found out. I literally screamed!! We got the script. I must say.. The writing is awesome!! It’s a great script!! I read my part and couldn’t stop laughing. I would love to see my character go somewhere. He has potential. 😂 We filmed a few scenes and it was a challenge. I’m kind of a sophomore at acting. So, I did mess up a few times. I had to keep going back and looking at the script. I’m looking forward to working with them in the future. I’m really hoping because it’s a great project. We chatted after we filmed. I’m working on not being so shy. I’m going to work on my craft. I’m honored to be part of an amazing project. I love my character a lot. Everyone was truly kind and supportive. There’s a group of amazing actors, writers and crew. I can’t wait to see it all. I’m hoping everything is a success!! It was a blessing. My confidence level is pretty high now. If folks are going to see and hear me. I’m on film now. I can’t be scared now. I’m only going up!! I’m happy as all get out!! I’m proud of myself!! I’m sure my mother is smiling down at me!! I’m Chazz Anthoney Cabrera. A singer, actor and blogger. Just living the dream.
