Meet OscaRico: One of Brownsville’s Most Passionate Musicians
Let me introduce you to OscaRico. Oscar is a young and talented individual that began his passion for music at an early age. At age 11 he knew exactly what he wanted out of life. What he wanted was to make music. Music is what truly inspires this gentleman. I sat across from Oscar as I was doing this interview and could literally feel the passion he has for his music. He is one special individual. His enthusiasm for life is overwhelming. His outlook on everything around him just shows the type of person that most of us only aspire to be. His energy is also conveyed in his mannerism. He has a special gift that is displayed in his persona. He began competing in music competitions at an early age and began building a love for music. A love that cannot be replaced by many other things. He has made several youtube videos and continues to pursue his dreams. When asked about his life and his dreams he simply said,” I am happy with what I have at the moment.” “I wouldn’t change a single thing in my life.” One doesn’t hear that very often. We all have that one thing that we would change or do differently, not Oscar. He wouldn’t change a thing. I asked the following questions and received some rather incredible responses.
- Where have you received your motivation from?
Oscar: Life.. Life is my motivation. It is a combination of Art and Music. I learn from life’s experiences.
- What would you change if you could change right now?
Oscar: Nothing, I would not change a single thing about my life. I am Happy.
- Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Oscar: I honestly see myself doing what I do, loving what I do and of course planning for the future, but also, Living in the moment.
- How do you feel that success is truly measured? Wealth or power?
Oscar: I truly believe that it is measured by a smile.
“If what I love to do can make just one person smile , then I have accomplished something real.”
I believe this young man has a true gift and passion for what he does. He doesn’t make millions for performing on stage. He doesn’t have the luxuries that most artists have, the cars, homes, money and power. All he has is his smile and passion for creating something beautiful that can live on long after he is gone. Oscar , I truly believe will leave his mark on this Earth whether it be with his music or the way he leads his life. He will impact someone’s life in a manner that he himself may not even be aware of. Check out our local up and coming star, I think he just might surprise you.
