R&B crooner Maxwell joins the team on The Breakfast Club Power 105.1 to discuss his music career so far. He explains why it took him seven years to release his new record, his Haitian heritage, growing up poor and light skin in Brooklyn, New York, and not feeling “Black enough.” He also sheds light on the new direction he is taking his music.
“Gerald Maxwell Rivera (pka) Maxwell, is an American singer-songwriter, record producer, and actor. Maxwell was born in Brooklyn, New York, the son of a Haitian mother and a Puerto Rican father. His mother grew up in a devout Baptist household in Haiti.Maxwell’s father died in a plane crash when Maxwell was three years old.The experience made him a deeply religious child, and during his childhood he sang in a Baptist church. He did not really get serious about music until age 17.”-Wikiepedia
