ECHO Echo, born Terry Echols, was raised in Perry, GA by a single mom who became a severe alcoholic. As a result of her addiction and questionable choices, he and his mom were often left without electricity, new clothes, new eyeglasses and toys, but despite those unpleasant times, Echo's mom was still an encouraging factor in his life. As a matter of fact, his mom was responsible for introducing him to music by purchasing his first keyboard. This small gesture opened up the doors for Echo's imaginative inspiration to unfold which sparked the beginning of his creativity through writing, reading and music, but, unfortunately, because of the perils of his mom's addiction, his keyboard had to be pawned and the cycle of instability continued. After having to repeat 5th grade due to multiple absences in school, Echo was sent to live with his father and new mother in Athens GA. It was in Athens where Echo was able to act as a child without the responsibility of the burden he carried while living with his mother in Perry. His new environment provided him with normalcy, a functional family and the opportunity to dream. Echo has often said that living with his father and new mother saved his life and helped him to transition into a secure, confident man. Even though he had mastered the art of Scripture as a teen, he desired to establish a closer relationship with Christ. His new relationship with God allowed him to find peace, love and freedom in the Gospel. This authentic commitment and strong relationship transitioned into the birth of Echo. Tonight we will get up and dance like David danced...its a new year and a new you!
