time Grammy Award Winner John Legend sends his best
wishes for the launch and vision of Muzika. John
Legend (John Stephens), originally from Springfield,
Ohio, was mentored by Arlin "Par" Tolliver from the age
of 11 until 16 when he left for college in Pennsylvania.
"Developing a close relationship through music, Johnny
became like a son to me", Tolliver said.
Tolliver feels Johnny is a
prime example of believing in your dreams. When
speaking about Legend, Tolliver stated, "His love for
the arts in music and theater has become a reality and
I'm proud of him. Even at a young age he put his
all into his singing and music and I'm still trying to
encourage young people even today that the same can
happen to them." Muzika wants to help make dreams
to become a reality. It is never too late and it
doesn't matter how old you are. The greatest test
is believing in yourself. Like Johnny, you too can
take the next step toward your dream.
