Zoful Music f/Alonzo Chadwick: His interests in music began around the first grade, where he was selected to sing the lead for his classroom's Christmas program. From there he got started like many other artists of today: singing and stepping into the role of lead vocalist in his church choir. Now, this talented vocalist has stepped into his own as one of the Pacific Northwest’s premier male vocalists, and creating quite a buzz. And his name? Alonzo Chadwick!
Possessing incredible vocal range, and an amazing voice to perform almost any genre. He also has an energetic stage presence that impacts you emotionally as well as joyfully. Able to move deftly from a simmering ballad that soothes the soul and sets an ambiance, to an up-tempo R&B, Blues, Jazz, Funk, or Gospel groove that creates a high-pressured musical experience, that not only gives you chills, but guaranteed to have you up on your feet clapping, dancing and singing along. He is a true Musician/Vocalist that has sincere compassion and desires to see people impacted through his gifts of Music. He is also a poet, songwriter, actor, playwright, and most of all a GREAT Father/Husband.
He has begun to take his career in music to the next level by preparing to record his first project after years as a professional vocalist. You may have seen Alonzo performing as a highly anticipated reoccurring soloist at the Oregon Symphony’s annual “Gospel Christmas” for the last 12 years. That’s where Alonzo never fails to wow the audience by ending all three nights with a roaring standing ovation. Originally born in Nebraska, Alonzo has called the Pacific Northwest his home for the majority of his life but has traveled far and wide musically. His singing has taken him from the West Coast to the East and from the Northern states to the Southern states. He is the 2012 spring winner of the “Most Powerful Voices” singing competition sponsored by GMC channel. He has performed at the National renowned “Oregon Blues Festival,” as well as Oregon’s “The Bite,” and “The Portland Rose Festival.” Performed and shared the stage with recording artists such as Josh Groban, Israel Houghton, Kim Burell, John P Kee, Canton Jones, William Murphy, India Arie, CeCe Winans, Pink Martini, David Banner, The Oregon Symphony, Storm Large, Linda Hornbuckle, Janice Scroggins, National renowned Cantor Ida Rae Cahana, and Orchestra Conductor Dr. Charles Floyd, and special life-changing performances for Civil Rights activist Congressman John Lewis & Myrlie Evers.
Alonzo has recently stepped into the world of theater and is already beginning to make his mark as an up-and-coming thespian. Using this platform as a place to engage in the fight for social justice. He’s now ready to go to heights unknown and is excited about using his many gifts and talents on his journey along the way.
