This Guy Sings To Prove To His Dad That He Is Worth Something – His Dad CRIES!

Uh, what is your name? Zakaria Justin Rhodes And what is your talent? I’m a singer, piano player.

I started playing piano when I was three years old. My dad sat me down and that was the beginning of music for me. My parents loved that I played music, but didn’t necessarily want that to be my career. But I decided to move away from my family in Buffalo and move out to New York City to persue music It has not been an easy road. I was playing at bars in clubs were people were out to party and it quickly became what would be my undoing.
