19-year-old singer, actor and comedian Reed Shannon, has found a home in acting and singing. He got his first big moment playing young Michael Jackson in Broadway’s Motown The Musical in which he was handpicked by Berry Gordy to play the role because of vocal abilities.
From there, he’s appeared on many TV shows on Nickelodeon, ABC and movies (Canal Street Movie), and most recently was hired as the voice of The Cartoon Network. He’s been a featured comedian at some of the top comedy clubs around the country. His first love is music, and he’s ready to dominate. He’s teamed up with Grammy Award Winning Record Executive Amir Windom (Bruno Mars, Pharrell, Trey Songz) to take his music to a higher level.
Allow me to introduce you to ‘Soul Play!’ ‘Soul Play’ feels like a grown man mentality at times with the energy of a 19-year-old. Reed shows off his song crafting and crooning abilities on this 7-track project. With production by Grammy award-winners and nominees, this album feels a little ahead of his time, but still feels like it was created for his generation.
