This awesome young man will be performing an ENCORE PERFORMANCE OF NATIONAL ANTHEM at the NBA Playoffs Game 6 with Washington Wizards vs. Toronto Raptors at Capital One Arena on Friday, April 27, 2018 @ 8:00 PM, EST.

Eli, is an incredibly talented 14-year-old. Born and raised in Prince George’s County, Maryland, he started playing the drums at the age of two years old. By the time he turned 10, Eli had begun singing and playing the piano. Those have become his passions, along with playing the guitar, which Eli recently added to his musical repertoire because he believes that being a well-rounded musician is important. He also loves producing music and songwriting. Acting is another of his interests, and Eli has performed in a number of musicals and plays at local churches and his school, Benjamin D. Foulois Creative and Performing Arts Academy, where he is a drum major. This gifted teen won the Gwynn Park High School talent show in Brandywine, Maryland.

This young musician was elated when he served as the opening act for WPGC 95.5 FM’s 18th Annual for Sisters Only at the Washington Convention Center in November 2017. That show featured recording artists Mya, Lil Mo, Ginuwine, Raheem DeVaughn, and Amerie. Eli has been able to overcome many obstacles in his young life because of the love and encouragement he has received from his family. His goal in life is to share his music and talents. One statement drives Eli toward that every day: “People are going to hate, but it’s your choice whether to embrace their negativity or use it to drive your success.”

Come out to see Eli’s performance and enjoy the Wizards vs. Raptors playoff game at Capital One Arena!
