Inspired by his sibling after watching her perform at a local talent event, Jarvis knew at that moment, that he too desired to make the stage his second home. “The way she worked the stage and the crowd, was amazing” he says. The desire to make that dream a reality was ignited during a family road trip. “I remember singing this song that was on the radio and my family kept telling me how great I was right then, I knew.” At only 12 years old, Jarvis would begin to charter the path that would make his dream a reality, performing at local events, winning numerous talent competitions and shutting down stages, wherever he was able to grace the crowd with his presence. It was only shortly thereafter, that Jarvis would get his big break. By way of a family member who worked in the music industry, Jarvis would be able to meet and be signed with Jermaine Dupri. Excited by the opportunity to meet and work with so many celebrities, as well as the true power players in the music industry, Jarvis knew without a doubt that this is where he wanted to be.

Left with talent a dream, and a deal gone sour, Jarvis had the support of his family and friends, and surrounded himself with positive individuals, and that was all the encouragement he needed along with his drive and passion for music, to fulfill his dream. As fate would have it, Jarvis established a working relationship with Mace (StarStruck Management), who at the time was a very good friend, it was through their conversation during a basketball game, that the two realized, what had just taken place. “We both had the same vision and I trusted him completely.” Indeed it was definitely a relationship written in the stars and signed by destiny, because no sooner had Mace and Jarvis agreed on a management relationship, that Jarvis would be signed with Atlanta based Disturbing Tha Peace Records, powered by a music mogul himself Hip Hop Super Star: Ludacris. Though what was initially a meeting to discuss another member of the DTP family getting on a track with Jarvis, Chaka (Ludacris’ manager) heard the record that Mace had given him and liked it so much, that Ludacris immediately jumped on the track. The song ” Pretty Girl ” was ready to go and began quickly making its way to radio stations across the country, becoming one of the biggest hits of the summer and the rest as they say is history.
