The Final LoveJourney Entry ::

At the end of every journey is a prize. Whether it’s a lesson learned, a monetary reward, a new friend, or simply peace of mind. There’s always something in store for us when we reach the finish line. For me, finishing and releasing my first EP was something like a miracle. I had gone from being alone in my room, writing pieces from the heart, to promoting my new cd on iTunes. This was a journey indeed. My prize was pretty much all of the above. The feeling of accomplishing something and seeing it through was the biggest reward for me. To top things off, I had the chance to travel to the Caribbean and explore some parts of the world I had never seen. Jamaica was a gorgeous landscape of reality. I traveled through the countryside of Ocho Rios and witnessed some of the most humbling and astounding sights. The people, the homes, the community was as eye-full. Cayman Islands was a paradise where I released all control and truly enjoyed life. So here I am, at the end of a journey and on to a new one. Lesson learned: Faith can take you anywhere you wish to be. Dream on. 

Peace.

Flashback :: I had to be like 16/17 here. An age where innocence overwhelmed knowledge and consciousness. Sometimes it’s important to unplug and return to the state where you are soaking up life & looking forward to each experience. Let’s lose calculators/fears and just be! #LoveJourney

Always & Forever. 

Each moment with you. Is just like a dream to me that somehow came true.

I grew up on this music.

My grandmother blasted Heatwave day in and day out and I could never help but to sing along. I had to do my own rendition with the help of the incredible Victor Gould. We took about a million takes at The Breeding Ground just to capture the perfect moment. I hope you enjoy every bit of it. Keep love and romance alive. 

Peace, 

Chaancé
