Providing daily updates in the world of entertainment, fashion and world news is what Ms. Vina D.com is all about. The Blog page is celebrity news driven, but it is always amazing to take a step back and support local or unknown artists to some, who are following their hearts and making their dreams reality. It is always wonderful when a person decides to walk in their purpose no matter how uncomfortable the road might be in the beginning, they stay steadfast, knowing that hard work, perseverance and dedication will always payoff in the end. One artist who has continued to do this no matter the obstacles, is Rey Royale.
Born Reynaldo Gilmore in Boston MA and now goes by his stage name, Rey Royale, his love for music started at a very young age. Royale lists Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, David Ruffin, and Michael Jackson as a few of his inspirations for his passion for music. While perfecting his craft by listening to those legends listed above, Royale continued to pay close attention to new music and R & B artist to come. Boyz II Men, Dru Hill, H-Town, and Jodeci, were soon added to his list of influential artists. Witnessing the power of brotherhood and success of those groups mentioned, led Royale and a close friend to start a group called 617 at the time. They were opening acts for The Temptations, Donell Jones, Boyz II Men, and many more. A group name change, record deals and the opportunity to tour with singer Keyshia Cole came later and provided an amazing platform and experience for Royale. The group was also featured on the song “Superstar” from Cole’s platinum-selling debut album, The Way It Is. They went on to work with more artist and like many groups, parted ways in 2008. With years of exeprience under his belt, Royale drive continued.
With a smile that lights up a room and listing his musical style as, Rhythm and Blues, Royale is not slowing down anytime soon.
He has continued to make his name known seizing every opportunity. Performing on Apollo Live, in front of legendary mucians and judges, Doug E Fresh and receiving rave reviwes from a founding member Michael Bivins from the group New Edition, also from Boston, brought things full circle. Seizing the moment in those clips above and receiving a standing ovation from the crowd as well, further validated Royale's move in the right direction.
He has continued to released new music and performing, while making his presence known in a industry where being different is not easily accepted.
His amazing style sense, being able to transitioned effortlessly from a suit and tie, to relaxing in a fitted, while managing to keep who is as a person present at all time, sets him apart.
