Mishon Talks Usher Comparisons, New Video & More With MyYearbook.com

“Mishon might only be half Usher’s age, but he’s well on his way to matching the legendary R&B singer’s career. Both singers got their start thanks to the support of their families and talent shows like Star Search and America’s Most Talented Kid. Both singers not only perform on stage, but on screen as well. Mishon is well known for his role as Taylor “Tay” Sutton on ABC’s Lincoln Heights, and Usher had a reoccurring role on UPN’s Moesha. And to top it all off, Mishon will be releasing his debut album The Yearbook this August at only 16-years-old; the same age that multi-Grammy award-winning entertainer released his self-titled album. So when it comes to the comparison, let’s just say that it looks like the stars are aligning in Mishon’s favor.” – MyYearbook

About Mishon

• Mishon (MY-shawn), a 16 year-old singer and fledgling songwriter, represents the next wave of pop R&B edged with hip-hop fire.

• The vocalist has already stirred up noise with his debut track “Excuse Me Mama,” which shows off the Los Angeles native’s soaring vocal dexterity and considerable teen charm. His debut single “Just A Kiss” will be hitting the airwaves this April.

• The multi-talented teen is already a TV star thanks to his role as spunky kid brother Tay on the ABC Family Channel drama “Lincoln Heights,” which began its third season in September of 2008. Though Mishon has developed his own fan base thanks to his acting chops, he says that singing has always been his first love.

• Singing since he was a small child, his interest in music impressed his parents enough to enroll him in a local performing group of talented children that performed gigs throughout Southern California.

• Mishon’s debut Album, The Yearbook, is due Summer 2009 on producer/songwriter Vincent Herbert’s new Streamline Records, a joint venture with Interscope Records.

• Inspired by Michael Jackson, Usher, Jodeci, and Boyz II Men, Mishon is rapidly developing a style all his own. Mishon promises that like his performing idols, he’s got a few fly dance moves of his own saved for the stage.

• The young singer has teamed with uber-songwriters and producers including Sean “The Pen” Garrett (Usher, Pussycat Dolls, Ciara), The Underdogs (Chris Brown, Jordin Sparks), Dre and Vidal (Ciara, Usher, Mary J. Blige), Carlos “L.O.S” McKinney (J. Holiday, The Dream), Herbert and others on his debut album.

• While Mishon is ready to kick-start his run at the charts and already shines on the small screen, he remains humble and reminds other teens to keep their priorities straight. “Something I would like to tell teens is that if they’re a musician–or whatever they may do– they should remember that their parents always support them, so they shouldn’t be afraid to talk to their parents,” says Mishon, whose name is a mashup of the first names of parents Michael and Shontay. “I know that a lot of teens are kind of rebellious sometimes, but just keep your support behind you and keep God number one and follow your dreams, don’t ever give up. That’s been my stronghold for the last five years.”
