Vondell Henderson has had a love for music as long as he could remember. It all started long ago in St. Louis Missouri when 2-year-old Vondell told his mother he wanted to play the saxophone. She paid him no mind at first but he kept asking day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year. She tried buying Toy Pianos, Drums, Harmonicas, Guitars, Recorders, Maracas, etc. but little Vondell wanted a sax (one of the more expensive instruments). When his mother felt she could afford it and after nearly 8 years of him pretending to play sax in the air, his wish was granted a brand new Alto Saxophone. This gift came with a catch. His mother made him promise that he would never stop playing. Without taking another breath he agreed. She asked, "Vondell how did he intend to learn how to play?" He fumbled with the instrument throwing it together with the mouthpiece upside-down, belted out a few sour notes and said, "I will".
Vondell has a long list of musical achievements. A few are performing at President Bill Clinton's Inaugural Ball, Appearing on stage with Bill Cosby, working with several Capitol Records recording artist, composing music for Play and Film Scores, multiple solo projects, Mixing at Sony Pictures, Acting/Appearing on network television, Professional Modeling etc. This list will continue to grow as Vondell is currently working on projects with several artists and is recording his latest solo project.
