Need a gift for a gifted musician?
“In the world of music , an ever changing universe of sound , being as versatile as possible plays a key factor in the sensitivity of the art itself”. This is what Alfonzo Anderson ( a.k.a Zo) , a 25 year old local artist from South Bend , Indiana believes. The songwriter / producer is the founder of a growing entertainment label he has named “Motivation Music Ent.© ” which does exactly what it’s name says it does and that is simply motivate the listeners. With a modern day hip hop approach and a mixture of the faith in God that he has developed during his walk in life , Alfonzo’s music does more than just rhyme words to create a song , but it actually has a message of positive influence behind it. Not considering himself a gospel artist but not afraid to speak on the Gospel , Alfonzo shares his life experiences and ideas through his art.
“Staying humble and never thinking that you’re the best at what you do is the thing that will get you the furthest in this line of work”, says Alfonzo. When asked where he learned these elements he replied and simply said “church”. Alfonzo has been a musician , Keyboard / organ player, for the past 7 years at a growing church on the north side of the city known as Kingdom Christian Center , where the Pastor of the Church is Pastor Canneth Lee of South Bend Indiana. “ Zo” states that being under this anointed word every week has really opened up his ear to what God wants him to do with the gift that was given to him. “Growing up in a rough neighborhood and living in a single parent household , things could’ve turned out a lot worse for me so I just want to let everyone going through something that seems like an impossible situation can make it out too”, says Alfonzo.
The outlook on life that he gives his listeners through his music is what he believes they need to hear today in order to keep them focused on something more than the fads that the world makes look like is more important than education or respect for others. “ As the label and music continue to grow physically and spiritually I believe that it could be a serious impact to my community and God willing even further , Alfonzo says”.
