Episode 78 - JChosen

Joshua Hunter, known by his stage name, JChosen is a singer/songwriter/actor from Albany, Georgia. During his childhood days, his mother played Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and Marvin Gaye. His grandmother said during his birth, God’s angels touched his vocal cords. The ability to convert any song into a primetime karaoke moment provided ultimate validation of his gift.
JChosen’s love for basketball carried him during his college days. At the height of his collegiate basketball career, he suffered a career ending injury which suspended his basketball dreams indefinitely. During this period of disappointment, JChosen performed at an open mic session and the musical fire was re-ignited forever.
