Hi. My name is Robert Foushee. I am one out of 11 children from Michael and Brenda Foushee and we are from Washington D.C. I was born to sing and preach, that's what my mother always said. I was in the bathroom every Sunday after church singing, preaching, and praying til the walls would sweat, at just four years old! Talk about defining a dream. My mother and father have always pushed education, cleanliness, hard work and closeness with God on us in order to insure that we new the pathways to success. After 38 years together they still stand firm in the face of neglect, rejection, extreme poverty situations as well as the trials and tribulations that we have overcome while waving the banner of victory! My mother says that it is my gift of music that pieces her soul together when our family is going through. About seven years ago I got into some trouble and landed in jail. My mother was devastated and my dad was extremely disappointed. I thought that I would never amount to anything worth while because of the mistake I'd made. My mother told me to write music and sing while in jail, she promised that if I would stay focused and pray that God would grant me the strength to write and sing. It was extremely hard and there were days that I just wanted to die. However, I heard my inner voice, the voice of God, say to me that failure is not an option and that anything that's hard to achieve is worth working hard for. So I did! I wrote R&B, country, jazz, soul, rock and some rap! I did all I could to sing to aggravate the guards into a happy spirit. The inmates found rest and vision from my songs in the face of some very dark and hurtful moments. God had done it again! He turned what the devil meant for bad into a pathway of righteousness for my soul sake. If I am given the opportunity to sing and write and share I promised those inmates that I would give it back to them, that I wouldn't abandon the vision and that I wouldn't stop believing and singing souls to gladness. I'm very blessed to be on this journey and I'm excited about where I'm going. Making music as my definition of who I am and my purpose.
