When Billy was younger he decided he liked boxing and music, but he liked music so much he wanted to start a career on music (Schlesinger, 2008). After Billy decided he wanted to do music for a living he got in his first band group, the Echoes (Stambler, 1989). Billy played with his band for many things.

It was only my second year being in choir and I was going to attempt college-level music competing against people who have been singing way longer than I had; some that has even been in choir since the sixth grade. I knew I needed all the help I could get so I went to Tarleton’s All-State Choir Camp over the summer. It was there I saw a familiar face, Kyle Hendrix, a former all-stater bass from our school.
