As summer is coming to an end, most of us get discouraged as September may mean the end of dreamy holidays, lazy days off and months away of school’s stress.
But we are here this week, to tell you that working hard and dreaming big may get you to a whole year consisting of only summer. And Khalid may be one of the best examples for that!
Back in 2014 when Khalid was still 16, struggling in high school and releasing music every now and then on his personal Soundcloud, he was watching the 2014 Grammy awards. Seeing all these talented artists being awarded the best award in the industry, he tweeted:
And then went on with his life, and passion.
2 years later, he made his debut with “Location” reaching the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot R&B Songs chart.
Fresh and strong from his debut single success, Khalid followed up with his first studio album: “American Teen” on March 2017, which later will be certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America after selling over 1,000,000 copies.
This bring us to November 2017, when the Grammy Awards nomination list was out, and Khalid was nominated for not ONE but FIVE awards.
He then went through his old tweets to find the one he never forgot:
So, dear TasteMakers: Stop Wishing, Start Dreaming Big!
And continue dreaming with Khalid by making him to your city!
