At the tender age of nine (9) years old, Solomon was destined for performance and musical success. He began singing in his father, Rev. Sylvester Witherspoon’s church with his family, the Witherspoon choir. Growing up in a huge family of five boys and five girls, life has always been fast paced.
After the death of Solomon’s brother Sam, his sister Liz and his Father Rev Witherspoon, Solomon vowed to live by the words of his Father, “ONCE A TASK HAS ONCE BEGUN, NEVER LEAVE IT UNTIL IT’S DONE. BE IT LABOR, GREAT OR SMALL, DO IT WELL OR NOT AT ALL”.
As a rising star Solomon began singing background vocals for Kip Blackshire, and has had the privilege of sharing the stage with two musical icons Prince and Larry Graham. In the past year, Solomon and his band have performed with Bret Michaels, Eric Roberson, Doom Tree, former Prince and Nick Jonas musicians, Tommy Barbarella and Sonny Thompson, Grammy Award Winners, Three-6 Mafia, and 2012 Grammy nominated artists Mint Condition. Additionally, Solomon has recently been in production with former Prince drummer, Michael Bland and Jonas Brother’s member, Ryan Liestman. Solomon’s music is inspired by Marvin Sapp, Kirk Franklin, Luther Vandross, Usher, and Jamie Foxx.
Solomon’s vision will never change … Aim for the stars and Shoot for the moon! Don’t die trying … live trying. Once you have the chance to hear AND see Solomon and Ten17 perform, you will be captivated by their amazing sound and electric energy. Currently, Solomon is close to releasing his first EP album, and has his sights set on NO LIMITS in 2012!
