Elton G. Miranda is one of the most abundantly gifted singers, blessed with a big, trained voice and a soul to match. His debut CD introduces not only an accomplished singer with experience, but also the lyrics and music will take you to a profound spiritual life experience. Both of Miranda's parents had a big impact in his life. His mother Jeannette Miranda Villalobos took seriously the advise from Miranda's Sabbath school teacher when she told her that he had the talent of singing and it should be developed. His mother registered Miranda at the Sherwood Conservatory of Music in Chicago, IL where he learned extensively about vocal performance. Miranda's father, Generoso Miranda was not much involved in Miranda's life due to his addiction to alcohol and other problems, which led his parents to divorce. Miranda experienced the sorrow of death when his father took his life away, which had a tremendous impact in his life at the age of 9. Years later his mother passed away after battling with cancer for several years. Through it all, God had a plan in Miranda's life... Miranda is in deep gratitude with his mother, because through all the adversity, her effort, determination and persistent she was able to leave her positive influence and beautiful spirit instilled in his heart. The debut album 'Elton' is a collection of songs that has a deep meaning in his life. 'My Tribute' (Mi Tributo) is a song that will dwell in Miranda's heart because he will always be grateful to God for all the things that He has done in his life. It was also the last song that he sang to his father before he passed away. Miranda translated the lyrics 'The Anchor Holds' (Mi Ancla es Dios) into Spanish, when he heard it for the first time; he was able to identify himself with the song. With what he had gone through life he realized that God has been, still is, and will always be his anchor no matter what storm may come his way. The album concludes with the song 'I Am Determine' (Yo Estoy Resulto), which summarizes that no matter what happens in life, he will always be determine to live for the King!
