Imagine Muhammad Ali, Martin Luther King Jr., and Langston Hughes all rolled into one...that may not be possible but that is Andre Balboa's dream. The confidence and charisma of Ali, the dedication and discernment of MLK Jr., the writing prowess and wit of Langston Hughes are all traits that this emcee/poet strives for. The only child of a single mother that served in the military for over 20 years; Andre Balboa knows a thing or two about discipline and drive. Fans of Andre Balboa generally appreciate music with heart and substance. All of his songs reflect his real life experiences and relationships with God, family, friends and anyone else that may cross his path.
This self-proclaimed "underdog" has proved through his music that everyone's voice should be heard. Starting out as a hobby in the dorms of Cal State University Dominguez Hills, the songs and writings of Andre Balboa have developed into a full-fledged music ministry created to reach the "lost" and encourage believers.
