About charles lasterII and silvia pratesi

roma, Italy

"I want to release music people can hold on to... heart changing music that comes from God's heart to the listeners,"Charles Laster II hails from the eastside of Detroit, a city known for birthing the music legends of Motown. With encouragement from his father (pastor and musician), Charles began playing keyboard publicly at the age of 10. His talent and confidence soared as he explored the wind and string instruments, distinguishing him-self as a multi-instrumentalist.He admits, "my style is a fusion of influences: the songwriting of Andrae' Crouch, the organ accompaniment of Billy Preston, the vocals of Stevie Wonder, and the passion of David.
"...I have high regard and great respect for Charles Laster...I am certain you will be blessed by Charles' ministry which always points and focuses on the only One who is worthy of all praise and honor, our Lord Jesus." -Daniel Gardner (Integrity Music

“ For the warrior, there is no "better" or "worse"; everyone has the necessary gifts for his particular path
Paulo Coelho said.”An artist chooses his subjects.. that is the way he praises.”,Friederich Nietzsche quote
Someone asked me why I close my eyes when I sing and my answer was very simple,”Because I am singing for God and this is the reason why you can feel me”

Silvia Pratesi ,Born and raise in Rome Italy. Having a passion I started composing digital music in 2007. Although it seem that writing music is new I have always had an ear to hear the details of wonderful music. I decided to use this awesome gift from God on my lastest project Journey Of Life. The songs and music with my partner Charles Laster II were written out of my life experiences
