Words to describe Prince Alonzo: BOLD, determined, ambitious, noticed, courageous, innovative, and inspiring. He believes his life purpose is to impact, influence, and inspire the world. He’s already doing that.
Prince Alonzo grew up in Midwest’s Rockford, IL. Despite an early rocky start, at the age of thirteen he discovered his passion for entertainment by doing Michael Jackson impersonations. The response from this changed his life. In high school he was selected for the Creative and Performing Arts Program where he studied theatre and dance. In the summer he was accepted for the Rockford Area Arts Council’s dance apprenticeship- These two programs gave him formal training in Ballet, Modern and Jazz dance techniques.
When he was fifteen, Prince Alonzo founded his own hip hop dance team, “Fatally Unique”. The rehearsals began in his basement, and within five years the team won national competitions on television’s BET, and made it to the semi-finals of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent”. His hometown took notice, and the Mayor honored the team with a Proclamation, and the Rockford Dance Company Director approached Alonzo with a request to collaborate on choreographing a new dance for “Rite of Spring”. BOLD MOVES, a fusion of ballet and hip hop premiered in the Spring of 2013. That summer Alonzo was set to transfer from Chicago’s Columbia College to American Music and Dramatic Academy in LA to finish his degree in dance . . . . . And then, everything changed.
In business, the adage is when something works for you, stay with it. Dance was making him successful, but his real dream was to be a singer. Prince Alonzo was doing motivational presentations and encouraging young people to follow dreams, but he was scared to follow his own. Then he met Joseph Pearson, from Platinum Towers Entertainment. Prince Alonzo sang for him, and Joseph said he was already a star and began treating him like one. Within three months of making Joseph his new manager, Alonzo headlined at a regional Music Festival. Then they headed into the studio and recorded a few songs, including his hit single “Prince of Rock”. That’s when China noticed. In June 2013 Prince Alonzo, accompanied by four dancers, boarded a plane at O’Hare International Airport for his first tour in China. As of this writing, he just finished his 4th international tour. Prince Alonzo sings, dances and astounds sold out audiences. Selling out 75 Shows, 50 Cities, in 60 days over a 3 month tour in all of Northern & Southern China. Stay Tuned . .
