Our young Singer’s journey started in the sunshine city of Portmore, well Waterford to be exact which is also home to Dancehall Legend Vybz Kartel. H3ro is the eldest of two Sons, he was raised in a Christian home his father a Pastor and his mother an evangelist, so this meant being exposed to church from a tender age and that’s when his exposure to music began as well. He started to play the drums at the age of 8, by the age of 13 he also started singing on the youth choir which helped to nurture his Vocals and sound but it wasn’t until He started to attend Excelsior High School that he really developed a love for the arts within those 4 years of high school, H3ro entered a lot of Competitions, talent shows and concerts within excelsior as long as it contained an art form he could express in. After he left excelsior he went on to PCC (Portmore Community College) in hopes of attaining a degree in the field of IT (Information Technology) but due to financial constraints he had to stop and find a means to support his family and his craft and this led to getting a job at NCB (National Commercial Bank).NCB was a key moment in our Young Singer’s life, this was where he finally made the decision to enter the Music business but this wasn’t till after working there for 3 years. At age 20 he left NCB and had one goal in mind, to become a Recording and Performing Artist.
