The ability to entertain people and bring joy to them is primarily inborn, but it takes something to activate it. For Damon Fletcher, it took a pandemic and a strong desire to bring happiness to a gloomy world. He released his first video, “Hustle with a Purpose” featuring the Crushboys, in May 2020 and found success as the video amassed over 400,000 views on Youtube. That feat propelled him to do more, and thus, he remained committed to his goal of delivering happiness, joy, and entertainment to the world.
As someone who always had lofty dreams his entire life, getting into the music scene and touching lives was profound for him, and he vowed to keep pursuing everything he could achieve or do for the world as an entertainer. His lifelong goal is to inspire others and channel his creativity into ventures that heal other people. And with his music, he’s doing just that and a little bit more.
As a follow-up to “Hustle with a Purpose,” he released “2 Miles” Featuring the Crushboys” in August 2020, which explores positivity and chasing what one wants in life. With his dream of motivating and helping people still on, Damon Fletcher continued to write music and work on more projects to get his name into as many places as possible. Nine months later, on May 7, 2021, Damon released his third video, “Ready,” featuring Cupid giving props to iconic Pop and R&B singer, Usher. The song reflects on how the world has changed since the pandemic broke out and talks about going full speed ahead with chasing one’s dream. The song drew motivation from Usher’s artistry as Damon sees the singer as one of his biggest inspirations in the music world. He even attended one of Usher’s masterclasses to learn directly from him and his musical journey.
“Ready” was a hit he needed as it earned him recognition from some great musicians such as Ne-Yo while also getting massive airplay from radio stations and DJs. While Damon has been working very hard over the past year, he’s still learning and watching how great musicians before him achieved success.
Currently, he’s gearing up to win a trip to meet Usher in Vegas for a VIP concert experience where he hopes to gain new insights as an artist and performer.
Over the next few years, he sees himself becoming a successful recording artist with multiple Grammy awards and an influence strong enough to help upcoming artists get a start in their careers. Even though his music already communicates the importance of believing in oneself and pursuing one’s dreams relentlessly, he still wants people to read his story and be inspired. “I want my audience and fans to be encouraged and believe that they can do it too. Everyone has something inside them that makes them unique. They just need to reach within and find out what makes them tick.
