"GREATNESS IN YOU" - OSCAR YOREL HOLLAND JR.

HONORING & CELEBRATING THE GREATNESS WITHIN OSCAR......
 A PROUD CHANGE......
 
Former gang associated… Almost took my life and freedom away. But God had a different plan in which that moment in my life was just the “wake up” call. Now I’m a “true” Christian advocate. I have a mean testimony…lol
OVERCOMING  CHALLENGES
After getting out of jail, finding a job that would look past my faults and see that my skill(s) were more important. I prayed daily, nightly, and all in between.  I never gave up.  Took whatever came my way and worked super hard at it. Recently I just celebrated a full year with my current employer….first time in 6-7 yrs. God is AWESOME!!!
PERSONAL ACHIEVEMENTS 
AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS
I’m a born singer/songwriter. It’s the gift that was embedded in me before conception in my mother’s womb. Music is my medicine. It gets me through the hard and soft times in life. It is my dream to be able to share my music, PERSONALLY (on stage), with the world.
OSCAR'S PASSION THAT 
MOVES HIS SOUL........
Music! Any kind, all genres….doesn’t matter. I am a complete fan of the art. God made it that way and I’m forever thankful!


OSCAR'S INSPIRATION.....
My kids (Tatiana & Laila)…. 

They inspire me to continue striving to be the best I can be in all situations, circumstances, dreams, reality…..in life. Every parent wants what’s “best” for their children. I want to SHOW them how to go for it and never stop. I believe that doing that IS the “best” for them. That way if/when they have children they can do the same. 
THE MEANING OF FATHERHOOD
DADDY'S GIRLS.......
Fatherhood is guidance, protection, caring, love....fatherhood is more than I could ever explain. So what sums it all up, to me….Fatherhood is AGAPE love….unconditional!
LESSONS IN FRIENDSHIPS

Friendships come and go....

 I’ve lost a lot of people that I called/thought were friends. Some I miss, some I don’t. My circle is still being correctly formed… I’m on the right path now.
LESSONS IN LIFE....
It’s not mine to have, 
but it’s mine to live..
DEFINITION OF MANHOOD....

Strength & Honor….

FONDEST MEMORIES...
 My children being born. Watching them move, open their eyes, cry, scream (lol)…all for the first time. Cutting the umbilical cord… Holding them for the first time. Those are memories I hope to NEVER forget.

WHERE DOES OSCAR 
FIND PEACE AND JOY?

Mi familia!!!! No matter what happens….(that’s just it)



WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU 
GIVE TO A YOUNGER OSCAR?



You’re gonna be tested….you’re gonna be tried. But you WILL make it through! Keep God 1st and the rest will fall in line… Be patient!
STRONGER AND WISER

Life isn’t fair (so cliché, but so true). Sometimes you’re gonna have to fight, while other times you can sit back and relax. But you will ALWAYS have to work, and ALWAYS have faith. They go hand in hand. One without the other DOES NOT work….EVER!
LIFE LESSONS THROUGH MUSIC....
Yea, that I can actually do it and do it really well. I was never the “front man” but only because I allowed others to push me to the back. Once I pushed my way back up front I stayed there. I haven’t looked back since. Now I only go to the back when I want…lol
DO YOU BELIEVE THAT 
MUSIC HEALS YOU???
Of course I do…lol. It speaks volumes that only the soul can hear at times. Song, whether lyrical or instrumental seem to just have ….no, they DO have a lot of emotion in them because that is what the artist or musician that made it put into it. Music comes from the soul. So it’s only right that it understands it best.

ADVICE TO YOUNG BOYS....
Be a TRAILsetter!!! “Don’t follow where the path may lead… Instead go where there is no path and leave a trail!”I’m a TRAILsetter….Are you?!?!
OSCAR BEFORE 
AND OSCAR NOW...


Lost & Found…. For so long I never knew who OSCAR was. I went through many name changes, nicknames, etc….trying to become someone else. Thank God for guiding me to FIND myself. I am who I had been looking for all those years. Like I said earlier, I pushed MYSELF up front and I’m here to stay. 
 
WHO IS OSCAR YOREL 
HOLLAND JR.????
A lover & a fighter…. A dreamer and a reality maker…..A thinker and a do’er… I’m the “best of both worlds”
AS A BOY I WAS A FOLLOWER...
AS A MAN, I AM A LEADER...
A TRAILSETTER......
AS A FATHER, I AM HUMBLED...
AS AN ARTIST, I AM ME......
I AM FREE...
