R&B Artist/NBC TV’s The Voice alum Orlando Dixon offers a dose of “#BlackBoyJoy,” an encouraging narrative about taking pride in the black man’s existence. Lyrically, the song expresses the plight and frustration of the African American male’s current experience, yet still celebrates his resilience.
“With everything going on around me, and with all that I see everyday regarding my community, I felt it was necessary to write a song that resonated with people who look just like me. My intention with #BlackBoyJoy is to inspire and encourage my other black brothers. It’s our anthem.”
Dixon is a graduate of Berklee College of Music where he focused his attention on songwriting and vocal production, with credits that included a top 20 record on Billboard’s Urban AC chart, and working with the likes of Regina Belle. One of his most memorable achievements thus far has been his time as a contestant on Season 4 of NBC TV’s “The Voice” where he was a member of both Team Usher and Team Adam, moving forward one battle shy of the live playoffs. His stint on the show led to work as a background vocalist for Zac Brown Band, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, K. Michelle, and a recipient of the House Artist Grant which resulted in the debut of his project Listen: The EP.
