From the streets of Haiti, to now soaring to the top of the charts, Willy Saintidor today announces the release of his highly anticipated second album, 'Love, Life and Politics: Vol 2', under the Willy S Music Publishing Label.
A native of Haiti, the artist now known as 'Willy S' endured struggles beyond most Westerner's darkest nightmares. Those experiences shaped Willy's social conscience, his music and his fervent passion for improving the lives of Haitian children and the world.
After his parents were forced to leave Willy with the care of relatives in order to find employment outside of the country, Willy's Great Uncle cast him out onto the streets.
Without food or money, Willy slept on park benches and survived for days at a time without sustenance. At the age of fourteen, Willy was taken in by neighbours and eventually, by another Uncle. Working diligently at his schoolwork and in odd jobs, Willy committed himself to a better future and ultimately earned a college degree.
"I will forever be influenced by what happened to me as a child," says Willy. "It's not a secret that I am dedicated to the cause of helping the underprivileged children of Haiti and the world and that I spend most of my time working on their behalf. My music is a conduit to my activism and my passion for the cause." [Click To Read More]
