14 Year Old Phenom DIJON Delivers Urban Gospel "From a Kid's Point of View"

dijonThere's a saying that goes; "Children should be seen, not heard." But in the case of 14 year-old singer Dijon, the more appropriateverse would be, "...and a child shall lead them."  On his dazzling debut - A KID'S POINT OF VIEW - in stores every August 7, Dijon proves that young people with talent, charisma and a positive message still have a place in the music industry.  Fresh new vocals, coupled with dynamic production delivered in part by Asaph Ward and Todd Muhammad, unquestionably put Dijon on the level of today's mainstream hit makers, and yet it is his resounding message of Godly devotion, praise and encouragement that sets him apart.

dijonThere's a saying that goes; "Children should be seen, not heard." But in the case of 14 year-old singer Dijon, the more appropriateverse would be, "...and a child shall lead them."  On his dazzling debut - A KID'S POINT OF VIEW - in stores every August 7, Dijon proves that young people with talent, charisma and a positive message still have a place in the music industry.  Fresh new vocals, coupled with dynamic production delivered in part by Asaph Ward and Todd Muhammad, unquestionably put Dijon on the level of today's mainstream hit makers, and yet it is his resounding message of Godly devotion, praise and encouragement that sets him apart.   Laced with up-tempo contemporary tracks, meaningful lyrics and stand-out vocals, A KID'S POINT OF VIEW certifies Dijon as an artist to watch.    One listen, and it is easy to draw comparisons of a young Michael Jackson, Usher or Chris Brown; but listen longer and it becomes clear that Dijon has a sound all his own.  

Key to Dijon's success will be that his music is stylistically varied - from the on-fire techno bounce of a jam like "Give Him Praise" to the epic choral flourish of "Worthy is The Lamb" - but the content and urgency of his messages remains consistent.  The title track and first single "A Kid's Point of View" is a touching, heartfelt song where Dijon expresses his feelings about the divorce of his parents.  "Today, a lot of kids are raised by one parent because of all the fussing, fighting and leaving going on" Dijon shares. "This song hopefully will let these kids know that they are not alone."   The music video, featuring tv personality Flex Alexander, is being played on Music Choice and video outlets around the country.   Sincere worship will grab listeners on "I Know Better," and Dijon's brilliant interpretation of "How Great Is Our God" is belted out with passion far beyond his years.  On the bass-driven "He is Lord," Dijon again looks deep within and shares: "People say Dijon can fall flat / You should be singin' R&B, Gospel pockets ain't fat (but I ain't like that) / This is how I give praise and that's that / I let my God do the talkin', they can keep all of that!" "I wanted to record a CD that everyone could relate to," says Dijon.  "And I really want kids to know that just because you're a Christian doesn't mean you can't have fun. You don't have to sit there and not dance. You just have to order your fun so it doesn't get out of hand."
