“The musician with a message, SaulPaul, once lived a life of violence and drugs. Today he tours the US inspiring audiences through his music and his story.”

SaulPaul was interviewed for the feature story in Financial Chronicle, an English language Indian newspaper primarily covering Indian and international business topics like economic and financial news and issues.

“There are many things we take for granted when we live in an insulated world. There is a tendency not to look too far beyond the immediate neighborhood. I first heard about SaulPaul at TedXYouth@Austin hosted by high school students last month. He was introduced as the musician with a message. His story was not the typical rags to riches tale…”

How has the journey been so far?

“With my love for music and speaking, I realized that I want to be a musician with a message. Someone who can help the youth understand their potential. My Shows are very engaging. I invited the audience to be a part of the music. It is called recap rap. I use rap skills to engage with the youth. A documentary film, Tower to Tower, was made of my life and also released as a CD and a book. I was at South By South West and partnered with cool brands like Prezi and Spotify and I am looking forward to my gig with Google.”
