The gift of music bestowed upon Benjamin was noticed at a very early age. One evening his parents, Benjamin and Linda, discovered that their toddler, who they thought had been put to bed for the evening, was in his bedroom dancing and singing. ..We thought it was the radio..,.. said mother Linda ..We knew then that our son was blessed with the gift of song... Born and raised in Waterbury, CT, Benjamin's passion for music was developed and nurtured in school choruses, local talent shows, and what he calls singing without reason. "I remember just walking around singing for no reason. It just made me feel so happy." said Benjamin. Benjamin recalls writing his first song at the age of seven for Mothers Day. "I was in school at the time and I wrote this song for my mother and I wanted to sing it to my teacher to see if it was good enough. She liked it so much she made me sing it for two of the 2nd grade classes." This occurrence introduced Benjamin to the performing arts. Benjamin has worked with several local acts in addition to working with major production companies as a song writer. To date, he has opened up for several major labels acts such as 112, Brandy, Joe, and Keisha Cole, The Dream, and Trey Songz.
