John Gillette's Biograph.

Exciting. Vibrant. Dynamic. Artistic. These are just a few of the words that anyone wh. has ever met or seen John Gillette would use to describe his personality and the aura h. projects on stage. In actuality, words like these only begin to scratch the surface of ho. unique this natural born entertainer really is and how much talent and ability he exude. with each well delivered note he sings, or each isolated dance move he executes. Th. reason John makes his performances look effortless is because his journey to develo. into the talented entertainer he is today started almost as soon as he could walk. John Gillette was born on a U.S. Air Force base in Bitburg, Germany. At the age o. three, John’s family moved back to the States to a small town in Michigan and the. subsequently to Montgomery, Alabama where John spent most of his childhood years. Even at a young age, John’s family realized that he displayed an extroverted personalit. and embraced attention. He loved to spend hours creating his own dance routines an. performing them for his parents, family members, friends, and anyone else who woul. watch. However, the idea that he should pursue the dream of becoming a successfu. recording artist didn’t materialize until after he had already made his commitment t. another career choice.

Upon graduating from high school a full year early, John made the decision to follow i. his father’s footsteps and enlisted into the United States Air Force, just shy of his 17t. birthday. While serving his country in the military, John worked as an Aerospac. Propulsion Apprentice on classified F-15 Fighter engines. It was here that John bega. lending his voice for military functions and was discovered by his Base Commande. soon after performing the National Anthem for his squadron. John sang with enoug. conviction and inspiration that the same Commander requested him to sing at all bas. functions permanently, which he continued to do for the remaining two and a half year. of his enlistment until he was given an honorary discharge. Inspired by his love of musi. and bolstered by the experience he gained while performing in the military, John decide. to move to North Hollywood, California to pursue a career in the entertainment industry.

Having already become an accomplished dancer, he immediately started teaching hip-ho. dance classes in order to earn a living while simultaneously improving hi. choreography skills. It was at this time that he became friends with some of the mos. talented and renowned choreographers, such as Wade Robson, Shane Sparks an. Stephen “Twitch” Boss. It was through the inspiration and cooperative work with thes. men that John was able to quickly make a name for himself on the dance scene. It was while performing and traveling in New York City that an opportunity presente. itself to John in the form of a chance meeting with Founding President of the MegaSta. Records Label, Bret Lowery, p.k.a. Bret Lover occurred. As a former recording artis. himself for Universal MCA, Bret knows how to identify talent and from the moment h. worked with John, Bret knew that John’s attention to detail, inexhaustible work ethic, an. magnetic personality would help him rise to the top of the music industry. What wa. even more impressive was the fact that John seemed to be a relentless learner who wa. committed to learning, growing and improving everyday as a recording artist an. songwriter, even as he continued to gain even greater recognition for his choreograph. and showmanship.

As a result, John’s passion for singing and dancing has opened many doors to an arra. of exciting opportunities. His resume is extensive and carries highlights that includ. dancing for the US Olympics, as well as at major PR events for global corporations lik. Honda, IBM and JC Penney. He’s choreographed and danced Off-Broadway an. opened for recording artist DJ Unk. Additionally, John has danced and choreographe. for the NBA Denver Nuggets Dancers and has also formally choreographed for the NF. pro-football Dance squad, The New Orleans Saintsations. Currently, John teaches dance across the country and is considered an “expert” who i. constantly invited to judge dance competitions nationwide. His newest projects for 201. include being featured in 2 Network Commercials for The Disney Channel and Th. Cartoon Network, as well as the new Weber Grills “Just Have Fun” campaign which i. currently airing nationwide.

To-date, John is singing, dancing, and writing songs that will appear on his debut album. Most recently, he has been given the opportunity to work with the famed production/artis. duo of Midi Mafia, highly acclaimed for working with acts such as 50 Cent, Davi. Archuleta, Lloyd Banks, Brandy, Nelly, G-Unit, Angie Martinez and several others. Joh. is very excited about the tracks he has recorded with Midi-Mafia and expects them to b. a part of his debut album. As his star continues to rise and grow brighter, look for Joh. Gillette to become a household name in the very near future. « hide
