Mishon is a musician, actor, singer-songwriter and a multifaceted entertainer with passion and talent wise beyond his years. At just 19 years old he’s already found his face splashed across television screens after nabbing a role on the popular ABC drama, “Lincoln Heights,” a moment he likens to fate. “Acting for me it was kind of chance,” says the singer. “I just started acting and Lincoln Heights was one of the first auditions I went on. It ended up becoming the pilot got picked up and turned into a full season. That was a blessed opportunity that I had.”

Now with legions of teens watching, Mishon’s inviting them to explore his one true reverence; music. A hobby turned-nonstop-hankering, music is the one thing this bright-eyed youth still can’t resist, even while his acting career continues. The vocalist will be featured in “Note To Self,” an original BET movie, as well as a David Tolbert produced play this summer. “My music career is my passion but music is a tougher industry to attack at ground level. I’ve been doing music since I was 11 years old and I’m just bubbling right now. I feel likes it takes a lot more on the music side. Everything has to line up, your team has to line up, the talent, the vision has to all be there when the opportunity comes and everybody has to take their job as serious as they possibly can.”

With that in mind, he’s releasing Dorm Room Music, a primarily R&B project that he describes as “something you can have a good time to.” The lead single, “Victoria’s Secret” is about getting to know someone on a deeper level. Dorm Room Music is definitely worth a listen.

Mishon will host a listening session for Dorm Room Music tonight at Atlanta’s Microsoft store, check out a flyer for the performance below. –danielle canada
