Watch the visual for Ignatius All The Things which is now available on YouTube
When a song connects with your soul, it becomes yours, it has the power to change your life, or even save it. It’s that powerful connection that Ignatius is making with the underprivileged youth of Pomona, California. As a kid, Ignatius was the second youngest of ten family members living under one roof and at one point a two bedroom apartment. Originally, it was him and his two older brothers in the Los Angeles area then they moved to San Diego where his mother and father took in his cousins from Uganda who’s parents had both died from aids. Ignatius had a very close bond with his father, a father that was extremely violent and Ignatius would often watch as he would beat up his older elementary school brother with very fatal blows as if he was a grown man, any time he got frustrated. Fast forward and his father left the family leaving a struggling single mother with ten children working all the jobs she could get, surviving off of welfare, food-stamps and a mountain sized faith, this forced Ignatius to do a lot of growing up himself.
