The Gore Boyz are using their social media platform as influencers to encourage young people their age to Mask-Up to help prevent and slow down the spread of the coronavirus.
CHARLOTTE, NC, January 08, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Gore Boyz is a boy band from Charlotte, NC. The trio orchestrates a perfect blend of Motown, new school, pop, hip-hop, and R&B, creating a unique sound entirely of their own. Their music appeals to people of all ages and has reached millions of music lovers through the years, especially in the past three months through their hit single called "Spend a Bag." The song tackles how young love can give it all—money, time, and devotion.
"The recording experience was amazing. We were flown out to LA and we recorded the song in Frank Sinatra's studio," said the Boyz. Despite their young age—Herman at 19, Edwin at 17, and Sean Michael at 15—The Gore Boyz have already had their share of excitement with some of the biggest names in the industry. The band has been mentored by top hip-hop/Pop and R&B stars such as Usher Justin Bieber, and the iconic Jackson Five.
The Jackson Five and Michael Jackson served as one of The Gore Boyz's biggest influences growing up. They inspired them to better their craft in playing instruments and learn how to dance. Eventually, the learnings enhanced their showmanship and propelled them to a higher league as a group.
Furthermore, The Gore Boyz has also performed with Justin Beiber on his Purpose Tour. "I auditioned and was picked over many thousands of people to dance with him on stage," said Sean Michael, who was with Beiber during his performance in Greensboro, NC. Edwin said his most memorable show was in Hawaii. "I really enjoyed it because we got to see all the locals and have a great time, and everyone went crazy when we performed."
On the other hand, Herman shared one of his most treasured memories as a performer who met the Jackson Five. "We got to perform at the Tom Joyner Family Reunion at Disney World in Orlando, Florida, and they brought us backstage to hang out with the Jackson Five," he said.
Today, they are on a mission to pay their success forward, the Gore Boyz is spearheading the distribution of COVID-19 survival kits for the less fortunate and people with immunodeficiency. They are also using their social media platform as influencers to encourage young people their age to Mask-Up to help prevent and slow down the spread of the coronavirus. The group also had a summer virtual concert and raised over $10,000 for Morehouse College, where Herman is a Junior pre-med student. This is in response to the school's decision to cut salaries and positions in the institution.
"People always ask, what's in your Coronavirus Survival Kits? Once they find out what's inside, they go crazy! This is because there is a severe shortage of everyday products such as a can of Lysol disinfectant spray, infrared thermometer, pulse and oxygen monitor, Clorox wipes, gloves, masks, faceshields, 80-99% isopropyl alcohol, hand sanitizer, COVID germicidal wipes, and Lysol multipurpose cleaner," explained Herman.
The Gore Boyz have had a roller coaster ride of a career so far. Asked where their passion for performing as a group began, Sean Michael shared that it all started with a humble school performance.
"When I was in kindergarten, Edwin was in second grade, and Herman was in fifth grade, Herman wanted to be in the school talent show. He wasn't very good though, so our dad got an original member of Jodeci Earl Vernon to teach me how to play the drums, Herman how to get better at the keyboard/piano, and Edwin how to play the guitar," said Sean Michael. The trio played "Waiting on the World to Change" by John Mayer, which earned their first award as champions in the talent show, and the rest is history.
