His mother Victoria was also a member of the Motown family, touring as a vocalist with Lena Horne, and many other Motown greats.
Thunderstorm is a featured artist at the Wanderlust Festivals throughout North America and currently tours solo.

No matter what Thunderstorm sings or writes he does it from his heart. His life experience has given him plenty of material to share.
