- When he was just 15 years old he was forced to be kicked out and live on his own, now when he looks back at it he thinks of it as a blessing because that situation taught him to toughen up and strengthen his will. He is the man he is today because of it.
- When he was just 16 years old he dropped out of high school to perform at outdoor concerts for he had recognized his talent and was willing to pursue it.
