Re-release Episode 92: Rocky Peter - Passion Driven

By Aaron Static Render:

Happy Thanksgiving this Like many of you I am taking the holiday off. I could not leave you with out anything to listen to. Here is one of my favorite episodes that in my own opinion shows of the spirit of being thankful. If you haven't heard this episode yet or just need a good listen for your road trip to where ever your Thanksgiving is. Thank you for being part of the Uncontained family. Now go eat way too much food. I will be back next week with new episodes.This episode of Uncontained happened completely by chance. It is not that often that that you run in to an American Idol contestant standing in line at the local grocery store, but that is exactly how I met Rocky Peter. Rocky made it to the group rounds of American Idol, spoke and performed on the Nobel Peace Prize Forum and the 2016 Rio Olympics, but he had to overcome a lot to achieve what he has so far. Born in America, he was abandoned by his father at the age of 2 in Nigeria and enslaved as a child. The only escape Rocky had was singing in the fields. After years of being underfed, drinking water from potholes and losing his older brother to malaria, Rocky escaped enslavement and returned to America. Rocky attended UC Riverside and received a degree in biological science. After graduating Rocky found himself homeless. While he was living on the street he was given a guitar from a coffee shop owner who saw promise in his musical ability. Rocky taught himself how to play that guitar, and that is when things started to change. I invite you all to listen to Rocky’s story of his passion for music and his refusal to give up no matter how many challenges he has to overcome. I hope you enjoy and get inspired from this conversation like I did. This is how Rocky Peter Lives Uncontained.
