A wonderful article about a wonderful young man. I met Tyrell while giving a music workshop at the Fairfax Families 4 Kids event, and later invited him (along with other Ffx youth and mentors) to Cue Recording Studios in Falls Church for a recording session. To hear his voice listen here http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/alexandralajoux2 - click on arrow for a free clip: here Tyrell is singing softly in the background vocal behind the female vocalist, before the other male singer begins. It's significant the CD Baby picked this part of the song as its "free clip." Proves the point that Tyrell has awesome singing talent! FYI, the money from any downloads goes to Fairfax Families 4 Kids. (So far though this music like so many good things in life is a well-kept secret so no pizza parties yet :)
