WEST PALM BEACH, FL -- Down through history people have used words and music to convey thoughts, emotions, and provide entertainment.
So it is with a young man I met recently. Words and music from Montel that are brutally honest about himself and his life. He's a "Thursday's Child".
In a non-descript building near down West Palm Beach dreams are made.
For 14-year old Montel it was a dream come true...able to put words and music to a c-d at Saturn Sound Studios.
He raps about his young life which has not been a bed of roses.
"And momma is this the reason why you left me. I'm not feeling good. Please somebody help me."
"I noticed in one of your songs that you said something about adoption. Why would you put that in there and what does it mean to you? Like last time i was about to get adopted. It was bad and I messed up, so. That do you think about getting adopted? I would be happy."
Montel is back on track and still looking for that "Forever Family" that will share his music and his life.
He's been in care much of his 14 years.
"When I was born I was nothing but a baby, ready for the world because I knew it was going crazy but life is nothing but a game for some people. “What do you want to do with your life? If rapping doesn't work out , you know, go to college and find something to do...or a dancer."
To help him make his dreams come true, montel needs the love and support of a family...a "Forever Family", willing to take this delightful young man into their home.
Montel, this “Thursday's Child”.
