These opportunities allow us to gain a sense of what our calling in life are and use our talents to help the world around us.

Pilsen emcee Phero’s calling has been blessing this world with his profound lyricism over symphony-like instrumentals. This urban philosopher from Chicago brings us his latest offering “Awake” featuring Lomac on vocals and accomplished violinist Martin Lopez. This release illustrates Phero’s his road to redemption in overcoming adversities and losses he has encountered as a man of color growing up in Pilsen.
