Some entertainers need not wait for adulthood for the spark of talent to manifest. Unable to be contained by mere years, their gift sprouts early—and in doing so, it shines all the brighter. At only fourteen years of age, musical prodigy and Young Money Entertainment artist Torion Sellers ensures his place in this canon with a voice that is, in a word, timeless.
The son of a musician/preacher, Torion grew up in in a Georgia home steeped in both music and Christian values. On the fateful day that he stood up in church to mime along with one of his father’s sermons, he was unaware that his future was waiting in the pews. Immediately recognizing the boy’s natural stage presence, eventual manager David McPherson asked Torion to sing for him after the service was over.
After only a few bars, McPherson knew that he had a star on his hands. It took Lil Wayne even less time than that. Demonstrating that the record label is as good as its name, the hip-hop icon quickly made Torion the youngest artist signed to his Young Money Entertainment imprint.
Today, Torion Sellers stands at the beginning of a career that promises to be as long as it is impactful. A study in precociousness, he sings, dances and commands the stage with the confidence that belies his years. Each song that escapes his lips crackles with a rare and infectious energy —with the ineffable magic that defines a superstar.
Torion has released two free mixtapes, which are available at www.torionsellers.com or www.followtorion.com, and he will soon release a third. His as-yet untitled debut album for Young Money Entertainment is due out in spring 2012
