Not only has CJ released music on a verified Spotify account, but they have plans to attend a private sound engineering school in Tempe, Arizona known as “The Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences.” With big plans on the horizon and even bigger dreams, CJ can’t wait to see what the future has in store!
