Recently revealed to the public, 20yr old Hulvey (who is also a singer, rapper and producer) did not think that his dream to be in the music industry would be realized after getting a couple of rejections from reach Records. He thought his life would stuck to wiping toilets.
Here is what he had to say:
“I was wiping toilets for a minute,” said Hulvey, which kept him afloat in between working on the music and sending music to Ben Washer only to receive a gracious, but firm “no thanks” from the Reach Records co-founder and CEO. While toiling at the $10 per hour job, Hulvey, who dropped out of college to pursue music, began to wonder if bagging milk and eggs was his fate. In a conversation laced with divine providence, an older mentor asked him a question that changed everything. So what?
“What if God had you scrubbing toilets? Would you be OK?” Hulvey realized that he was clinging to a notion of fame that could never satisfy. His heart was after the wrong things, broken by things that can’t last, in need of healing from the only Person able to make things right.
“I had to let go.” Releasing his dreams to God gave Hulvey a better plan for his life and from there, new musical inspiration was born.
We wish him all the best as he steps into his calling.
