Morones is a singer, composer, musician, writer, and keyboard artist from Los Angeles. Oh, and by the way ... he is blind. His love for music started at a very young age. Despite his disability, he fought against all odds and started composing songs, and learned how to play piano by heart. Even at the young age of 10, he quickly learned that music was his passion and his way of expressing himself. Morones has performed in numerous bands, playing in styles ranging from Reggae, Latin, Cumbia tropical, and Rhythm and Blues. He recently decided to perform as an independent keyboard player. He has just released his first solo album featuring the sounds of Cumbia, Tejano, and Bachata. He is so grateful to God for his blessings and for giving him the talent to do what he does best: composing and performing music. Check out his warm, vibrant personality and his musical magic on YouTube … and enjoy! And, come see him perform on Saturday, May 4.
