Anthony D White III on a Full Ride to Taking the Music World by Storm

Many musicians have drawn inspiration from other legendary musicians and have gone on to be greats in their own rights. Anthony D White III is no different as he has taken so much from the pop icon Michael Jackson and was even inspired to the point of putting on a show for his family members as a child. 

Music interested Anthony D White III naturally, and the Indianapolis, Indiana-born artist has staked a claim in the industry as a talented independent artist worth watching. As someone who has never limited himself in anything he did, Anthony hopes to connect with as many people as possible and get them to believe enough in themselves to pursue success relentlessly. “I believe strongly in my music traveling far and wide, and at the same time hope people connect with my person. I want my audience to know the real me and draw inspiration from that.

He released his first EP recently titled I’m Over You on all major streaming platforms. He’s also projecting himself to different labels and stakeholders in the music industry and hopes to land a record deal by the spring of 2022. As part of showing his authentic self to his audience and fans, Anthony D White III has a reality TV show on YouTube titled “For The Life of Anthony,” which he just wrapped up filming for its second season.

Anthony D White III is laser-focused on his music goals and the things he wants to achieve in his career. Competition-wise, he sees no one as a competition as he believes his journey is unique to him and for him alone. “I’m my only competition, and when I see there are other greats in the room, I accord everyone the respect they deserve without diminishing myself. I keep my composure and my eyes on the prize,” he said.

He has enjoyed immense support from his family since he started making music. He has credited a great deal of support to his mother, Bridget Rowser, who has motivated him from the start to focus on his music career no matter the opinions of people around him. “She has been my biggest cheerleader who encourages me to fight for what I believe and never let anyone tear me down,” Anthony revealed.

As his career trajectory continues on its current path, Anthony D White III sees himself becoming more prominent and more grown as an artist in the next five years. Anthony hopes to leave a big mark on the world, showcase his talent, and prove to the music industry that he is here to stay. As an artist, Anthony D White has quite an interesting journey worth watching, and he wants everyone to understand his story, dreams, and who he is as an artist. With an album released less than two months and gaining traction on streaming platforms, Anthony D White III is optimistic about what the future holds for him in music.

How Maaleak Wilbur Successfully Established Himself as an Influencer and Marketer Despite His Difficult Past

Social media sensation and marketer Maaleak Wilbur is undeniably one of the world’s biggest personalities today who has the power to influence the minds, choices, and lifestyles of countless people. With over one million followers across all of his personal social media accounts and managing more than 50 million others on several platforms, he has become a force to be reckoned with online. For someone who grew up in the foster care system, lived in four different foster homes, three different residential homes, a couple of group homes, and went into the Witness Protection program, he was able to turn his life around and become a person of value through hard work. 

Maaleak Wilbur was only four years old when he went into foster care. He grew up without a real family and learned to fend for things on his own in order to survive. Life was never perfect, but he managed to stay motivated to create a better life for himself. At eight years old, he fell in love with gaming. By the time he reached 12, he was able to successfully build a fanbase of 30,000 people on YouTube. That achievement, however, was short-lived as he had to go back to the system. His YouTube account eventually got hacked. 

He found himself starting from the beginning. This time around, he was doing live content on Facebook. He generated an overwhelming following of 100k individuals simply by giving his audience relationship advice. His casual and lovable nature made him an instant hit, and the world fell in love with him. When he finally turned 18, Maaleak Wilbur explored several jobs in order to make ends meet. He spent a lot of time learning about trading and investing, and in a matter of time, he started to earn full-time from his social media and to invest his money in the Forex market. 

To say that he is determined is an understatement. He simply survived life with style. Despite his challenging situation and with no family to give him love and support, Maaleak Wilbur managed to finish high school with high honors. He did not, however, attend his graduation because he had no family to witness it. He simply went about his day hustling, like it was another ordinary day in his life. 

Maaleak Wilbur stands out from other influencers because of the compassion he extends to the plight of his followers regardless of their massive number. In consideration of their personal conflicts, he would give them encouraging advice on how to get past their situation without losing their inner peace. One of the biggest reasons why he worked so hard to establish his personal brand is so that he can tell people about his inspiring life story. He found the perfect platform to encourage young people today that they can achieve anything they put their minds to. By being a role model to the youth, he hopes to be able to make a difference in their lives.

The future is not promised to anyone, but Maaleak Wilbur promises to continue his personal advocacy of being a bringer of hope to those who are in the darkest season of their lives. He envisions himself evolving into a motivational speaker who travels the world to connect with as many audiences as he can. He is also considering writing a book about his life of being a successful YouTuber and entrepreneur.
