Sonny Apollo

​ You ​ Born in the Washington DC suburb of Frederick, Maryland, Sonny Apollo gravitated to the music of Stevie Wonder, Lady Gaga, David Bowie, Queen, Alicia Keys, and Prince while pursuing his studies in Music, Dance, and Theatre. “I touched my first instrument, the piano, and wrote my first song when I was 9 because of Stevie Wonder. Ever since then, Music has been my main expression and my therapy.” Sonny’s journey from Frederick to Chicago to LA has not always been easy, “I am a BlPOC. I am Queer. I am the product of a single parent household. I was born with asthma that left me using a nebulizer for at least the first 3 years of my life. While raised Christian, I am not a Christian now. I have experienced houselessness. The different forms of adversity that I have experienced have challenged me, but they have also motivated me: they have made me stronger. I identify with the kids who feel like a misfit, who feel like an outsider. I identify with the kids who keep that fight going inside of them. I want to win. I need to win. I will win. We will win. Welcome to the Xlub.” With a bronze throat, spectacular dance moves, and a bold artistic vision mixed with ambition, determination, and resilience, Apollo is rising.
