Some dreams live within us from a very young age. They are part of our personalities and sometimes our whole existence. These dreams wake us up every day and keep us wide awake many nights. However, not everyone has the courage to go for what they’re passionate about. The journey is always difficult, but those who embark on it with no fear end up changing their lives.
A life-changing event occurred in Abran Lopez’s life as well. But it all came together due to his hard work, belief, and ability to fight the odds with immense strength. Abran was raised by his aunt in Missouri. She owned a small store and supported him after his parent’s death in a tragic car accident. He was only 10 when he suffered the loss of his parents.
He matured at a very young age due to the hardships he faced. But as they say, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Abran would spend most of his teens working at a mechanic’s garage. He learned to fix cars, and he would spend hours humming his favorite Stevie Wonder songs while working.
At the age of 17, he started to write his own songs and spent most of his nights on the roof of his house playing his guitar and singing the music he wrote. This helped him polish his skills and craft without realizing it. Shortly after his aunt’s death, Abran moved to New York City to kickstart a new life. Things were much faster and more difficult in the city, and surviving was difficult. There were times he only made money by performing in subway stations.
But he never imagined that those difficult times would turn into a blessing. One random winter afternoon, someone dropped their business card instead of sparing some cash. After finishing his set, he saw the card and decided to reach out to the respective person. This contact was Abran’s golden ticket as it landed him a playback trial with a label.
While hunting for talent, they came across a video uploaded by someone online where Abran was singing his heart out. This music video landed him a life-changing deal. The label was more than happy to give him a year-long contract. This was a turning point in Abran’s life.
From then onwards, he has reached the greatest heights of success. His first album was a hit as it was streamed by millions of people online. Abran has established his dream life through immense hard work and his ability to never give up on what he wanted in life. He is an inspiration for many young artists, creators, and musicians out there.
Abran’s advice to every dreamer is to never give up and develop more patience, as they’re vital traits to have. With persistence and patience, anything is possible. He also believes that if he can turn his life around and get what he deserves, so can you.
