Born crippled in Zambia, the only child of poor parents and a double orphan at the age of 9, Aaron has never walked but has, instead, lifted his spirit through music. Inspired and gifted by musically talented parents, young Aaron learned the complex rhythms and tempos of Gospel music renown in the the south eastern region of Africa. Adopted by missionaries with Operation Mobilization, and mentored by a friend in the United States in various instruments and musical composition, Aaron's first composition "Mwelesa Mulba Suma" reflects a grateful heart in spite of the hardship and tragedies of his journey growing up in that region of the world. He plays and sings every instrument and vocal in this recording.
Of this, Aaron says " I share my music with churches, people, and concerts when given a chance. My dream and prayer is to be used by God in music. I want to see if I can go to a music school where proper playing of instruments and singing is taught so that I too can teach and reach others through music. My desire is to see God being glorified in my life and the lives of those around me through music."
