Olympians, Entertainers & business owners all come from a street in the small town of Boynton Beach Florida named Flamingo Drive. I grew up on that infamous street and knew all the kids on my block. We were all friends but had our individual relationship with each other. This feature-heavy project features artists I feel like I could have grown up alongside. Every track will take you through thoughts, emotions & situations I faced while living on Flamingo Drive.
The raspy baritone and soon-to-be vocal paramount has opened shows and shared stages with fellow celebrated performers including Fantasia, Lyfe Jennings, Anthony Hamilton, Bobby Brown, Vivian Green, Bobby V, Chubb Rock and more. Ramsey, who is heavily inspired by James Brown, Plies, Jodeci & Bruno Mars, has made cameo appearances on national commercials and television projects on WeTV, Netflix, VH1, MTV, BRAVO and NBC.
He can also be seen on Amazon Prime video in which he played the lead role in the short film "The Audacity." Antonio also played a role and performed the title track for the upcoming Film “A New Life”.
