"It is my hope that everyone enjoys my music and shares their experiences from listening to it. It was a labor of love that will not soon be forgotten," said, the Chocolate singer.
Martone has a clear vision on how he wants to proceed with The Evolution of Martone 2nd Edition. "It is my hope to see my vision for this project come to fruition with spreading positive messages about lasting relationships, between same gender-loving people," said the singer. In the months to come, Martone plans to film several music videos with former Michael and Janet Jackson dancer and legendary choreographer, Jimmy Locust. "I would also like to do some touring, acting, and television commercials promoting my songs as well, whether it is automotive or clothing lines," said Martone.
"A few people have tried to discourage me from coming out as a gay artist, especially being African-American. I politely told them that it is my choice and I had spent so many years in the closet and I am not going back in for anyone. Whether they love it or hate it you really have to respect the authenticity behind it," said the singer.
