Visionary AKA Michael Thompson

A visionary is described as one who beholds a clear, distinct, and specific vision of the future. The artist Visionary with his angelic voice, shines a light on the words of the Father, and touches on various aspects of social commentary all rooted in love; with inspiration from His greatness.

Michael attended Edna Manley College for Visual & Performing Arts where he would earn a musical scholarship to attend Temple University. During this time Michael focused on piano and vocal studies, in addition he worked at The West Philadelphia Consortium, where he mentored young delinquents, helping them to see a better path for the future.

Visionary's debut album “Brace Yourself” released in 2007 produced by Studio One legend, 'The Armagideon Man' Willi Williams, was well received worldwide. Radio stations and press from Paris, the United States and Canada helped to expand Visionary’s listening audience significantly. Visionary’s passion for producing authentic sounds has rewarded him with 3 nominations in 2008, and 2 nominations in 2009 for the Canadian Reggae Music Awards. In 2012 Uprising Entertainments' “Youth in Progress Talent Award Showcase” awarded Visionary with the Top Male Singer Award 2011-12 distinction, the honors continued when Visionary walked away with two awards in 2014 -Top Male Reggae Singer and Top International CD Release for Grassroots.

In between writing and singing uplifting music the artist has also published his first book entitled "The Hidden Agenda of Reggae Music". The book is a biographical perspective on the journey of the amateur artist into the professional arena. It takes a hard honest look at some of the obstacles, as well as some of the bridges within the music industry that an artist endures on the road to becoming a professional.

Grassroots is the Official Studio One tribute album released February 2014, by Vision for Life Productions. The album release event had a great turnout as the sensational Singer/Songwriter/Author put on dynamic live performance, delivering hit after hit, leaving the capacity crowd wanting more! The Grassroots
Album production team includes 3-time Grammy award-winning Barry O'Hare, and producer Ernie of Reflex Studio.
