Chris DeLoatch | Entertainer - Singer, Actor, Model
Have you always followed your dreams?
Growing up I always new I wanted to create art. I was always writing poems and singing. Anything that would let me get my point of view across, I gravitated toward. Singing has always been my first love, and will always be my outlet for expression.
What challenges did you you have to overcome to pursue your dreams?
Being an independent artist has always been a huge hurdle for me. I left home at an early age, and had to support myself while still trying to be true to my artistry. Finding people that believe in your vision and your end goal is like finding a needle in a haystack. I have been jobless, almost homeless, not knowing what would happen to me, let alone my dreams. B ut I knew things would always work out in the end. God is Good !!!!
How do you keep yourself level headed and focused?
Staying focused is a never-ending cycle, I know what I want and I know I have the drive. But, I'm human and can get weary. I have some great friends that I look to for support and inspiration. I always stay busy doing some kind of artistic project to hone my skills and to continually improve. I was blessed to be able to open up for Tamar Braxton and that let me know I was on the right track and that I was doing what I was meant to do, entertain.
