“My best friend, and life coach, Gary, has helped me to get my music career off the ground. With his help, I made a viral video as a tribute to my idol, Stevie Wonder. I got to meet Stevie Wonder personally when he played his concert here in Buffalo. This wouldn’t have happened if I didn’t advocate for myself and what I wanted. There is nowhere to go but up from here. I have my foot on the gas and I have no intention of taking it off.” – Jason Smith, Hamburg
