Young Prince Charles
At age 10, Young Prince Charles has had more success in the music industry than most people who are two or three times his age, and then some. Born Charles Jones, III in Richmond, VA in June, 2001, the young talent has a style and persona that have earned him accolades, and allowed him to open for such prestigious international acts as Soulja Boy, Diggy Simmons, and Mindless Behavior. Now signed to the XRECORDS Label under the tutelage of the highly esteemed and successful promoter Fat Thomi, Young Prince Charles is poised for a rise straight to the top.
By the time Young Prince Charles was 5, it was clear to his parents that he was destined for a career in entertainment, as he was constantly singing, dancing, and imitating his favorite artists and actors at home, with a particular fondness for Michael Jackson, Usher, Jay-Z, Will Smith, Justin Bieber, Tupac, and Kid & Play. He grew up around music, with dad Charles Jones working at in promotions at BYC Entertainment.
Quinton Hunt, the VP of A&R at BYC Entertainment, wrote the lyrics for Young Prince Charles from 2007-2011, with dad Charles handling the music. In 2011, however, the young star began to write his own lyrics, focusing on his feelings, situations that he and his friends had encountered, and what was going on around him. He is also an advocate in the movement against bullying, and even wrote a tribute to President Obama called, “Lots of Presidents” to encourage respect for the man whom so many have disrespected. “Check Yes Or No” was written in November 2011 about the attention he received from a particular young lady that he did not have time to return. Adept at branding himself already, the concept of his attire for performances is of his own choosing, including everything from his haircut to his jeans and sunglasses. He and his 17 year old sister Charlise collaborate on choreography, and when he’s on the road for big performances, she is one of his five dancers known as The Rock Stars, which also include two of his cousins and two close friends.
Young Prince Charles’ portfolio reads like a “Who’s Who” list, having opened for Soulja Boy at 2009 at the Richmond Landmark Theatre, and for Mindless Behavior and Diggy Simmons in 2011 at The Hat Factory in Richmond and also at the Trinity Life Center. He also opened for Young Tyga and Lil Twist at The Hat Factory in 2011, and was the headliner at the Universoul Circus in March 2012. In April 2012, he performed at the Southeast Urban Music Conference in Charlotte, Virginia, captivating the crowd with his skill and charisma.
When Young Prince Charles is not opening for superstars, he’s still busy performing. He was a headliner of the SOL School Tour, which serves the Richmond, Petersburg, Colonial Heights, Prince George, and Hopewell, Virginia communities by encouraging and motivating elementary, middle, and high school students to study hard for the SOL test, which must be passed to be promoted to the next grade. He was selected for the tour because he’s a model student – the president of his school, he takes advanced classes, is on the honor roll, and participates in SPACE, which is a space program for gifted children. Even the Richmond police department relies on him to perform for National Night Out, where he and others visit different neighborhoods and communities and engage the residents in fun activities and performances. He also performs at school functions and birthday parties.
Though he’s a “working man,” the youngster admits that he’s just a regular kid and loves to play video games, enjoys playing in local baseball, football, and basketball leagues, and is involved with the local Boys & Girls Club. But the music never stops. Young Prince Charles is scheduled to perform at Kings Dominion in May 2012, which is a theme park that was previously owned by Paramount Studios, after mesmerizing the audience there in 2011. He also has several private functions booked, including a function for the Richmond Police Department in June. Young Prince Charles is also working on his first album, which boasts 12 tracks, and is slated for release in August 2012. His single, “Fresher Than My Juice Box,” is currently available for purchase through iTunes.
