Vudoo Soul - Featured Singer/Songwriter
Vu grew up never suspecting that his quiet love for music would someday become his driving force in life. Born and raised in sunny California, he worked diligently in school, eventually enrolling into MIT. Although his initial goal was to pursue a career in electrical engineering and computer science, he would gradually discover a musical potential that had been hiding within. His first major step began with joining a college a cappella group called the MIT Logarhythms. As part of the slapstick antics and high-energy entertainment of this vocal ensemble, Vu came out of his shell to realize himself as a performer, touring with the group to Universities and venues across the nation, from college coffee shops to the LA Lakers Staples Center. Inspired by the music of Stevie Wonder and Alicia Keys, Vu developed further upon purchasing a digital piano, slowly teaching himself to play and write his own songs. A few months later, he laid it all on the line, as he flew to Austin, TX to audition for American Idol 2; after making it to the Top 200 in Hollywood, he realized that perhaps it was all a sign - to keep following the love of music. As Vudoo Soul, he joins Fifth Street as a Founding Team member and singer/songwriter, to continue an unlimited musical future.
