#8 Stephen Voyce: Award Winning Producer, Singer, Actor & Director on How to Transform from Pain to Greatness
Stephen Voyce is an upcoming force in the music scene. His style blends elements of Pop, Hip-Hop, and R&B to create his infectious sound. Voyce lives for his passion of creating music. With a large, rapidly growing fan base, multiple awards and nominations, and music that is topping charts, there is no doubt that Voyce will continue to grow in popularity. His most recent release that fans are raving about is his catchy tune, “Summer Lust.”There are five things you need to know about Stephen: He’s a vegetarian, unnaturally terrified of spiders, obsessed with Batman, Michael Jackson is his idol, but most importantly, he believes that everyone deserves to live out their dreams. In many ways, that almost naive ideology is the cornerstone of his charm. It is what makes him so… hopeful.But this wasn’t always the case for this Canadian/Nigerian singer, songwriter, producer and recently actor/filmmaker. When his career was in its infancy, his music served as a coping mechanism, a means for him to overcome loss, the loss of the most important woman in his life, his mum. She had instilled, in him, a sense of unending curiosity and in her passing, he saw that flame extinguish.As his journey progressed, he saw how his music touched hearts, and that rekindled that spark, one that ignited in him the decision to no longer let circumstance define his life, to choose to be the author of his own story. In his words:“Whatever you project into the universe, the universe projects back at you. So you might as well be a guiding light and watch the universe come back and guide you.” Our favourite conversations & takeaways from the W2S episode with Stephen Voyce: [2:56] - I think every kid of our generation was probably born from Michael Jackson... [3:09] - Honestly music really became something that was so important in my life...To release the feeling and emotions...

Honestly didn't think music as a career until after my mum passed... Something I had to do... To safe myself... Something that I want to share with the world... [6:59] - Never sing anything based on emotions... [7:56] - Allow you to make the decision as whether not even need a record deal in today's world...There are a lot of options in the social media... [8:32] - How do you learn about marketing, business?...  And what do you thing you got a do to get you to the next level?... It is the day that Instagram release the video feature... [10:33] - What is that drive that you have... that need to have that connection with your fan is so important to you?... When I was down... I only survived it because I put myself out there... And people reached out to me... They made me feel like I could be stronger... Now I want to look back and elevate everyone else... I want you to live up to your own potential... [11:59] - Someone in general that is driving to do what they want to be doing , they have many people they don't believe in it... Do you have any story that may they can connect to?.. [12:49] - Life will throw hurdles at you... see the lessons in it and learn from those lessons and try to pass something positive... [13:22] - Everything you do, everything you say affects the World and everyone in it... [13:29] - I am curious, do you have any habit or stuff you do daily?...Help you stayed grounded, stayed mindful..
