I loved meeting Lelea and his family! It was SO hot outside (over 100 degrees) and we worked hard to get some good shots without sweating to death. He even played a song for us! I really love his island vibe, its just soulful and good feeling! He is so talented at such a young age. I cant wait to see where he goes from here!
He is 15 years old and was diagnosed at age 7. He has played the guitar and ukulele since he was 9 years old. He is self taught musician. He started a band at age 13 and is unstoppable!
He has performed with many musicians including Alive Cooper, Gavin Degraw, Joan Jett, and Jordin Sparks.
He is working on and will have his first album out by December 2017. Check out his website for upcoming performances, videos and more about Lelea (www.Lelea.org)
Along with all of this , he is a high school student and is a youth ambassador for the American Diabetes Association.
