Singer-songwriter LeRoy Mobley has been making headlines across the world for bringing so much joy in a time of so much darkness. COVID-19 has disrupted all of our lives in a way we could have never imagined, and some of us have even lost loved ones, but COVID has also brought about opportunities to connect as a global community.
That’s exactly what LeRoy Mobley and his music has been doing. LeRoy, not a stranger to darkness himself, has been spreading joy and love with his passionate and soulful music.
Born to a Vietnam Veteran father and Gulf War Veteran mother, LeRoy grew in Florida, attending a school in Tampa where he first found encouragement to share his talents from his teacher. He began singing at school and church, and picked up the guitar and other instruments for the first time.
It was only after attending university that LeRoy experienced a long period of deep, dark depression, that sucked him in and wouldn’t let him go. He experienced suicidal ideation and sexual addiction. It wasn’t until a fateful night at the end of 2010 that things turned around for him. On that night, he experienced a miracle that changed everything for him, and he vowed to follow his faith and share his new found light with others.
After that night, he found the strength and momentum to change his life around and get on a new path. He only has one song out now but has plans in the works to release more and attend festivals as soon as our current circumstances make it possible to do so.
Obviously, this inspirational story hasn’t just hit home with us – he’s been featured on ABC, Fox, LA Wire, Fox’s Good Day New York, and numerous other places. Despite COVID and everything life has thrown at him; LeRoy is determined to share his music with as many people as possible.
LeRoy’s music is uplifting and soulful, and has a vibrancy that propels it into popular music. You can truly hear his musical influences (Stevie Wonder, John Legend, Shawn Mendes, David Guetta) in each and every track. With a history of acting on stage and in front of the camera, and dancing, his energy on stage is magnetic.
When he’s not sharing his music with others, he loves traveling and keeping fit. He’s been to countries all over the world, from Japan, Australia, England, Canada, and the Dominican Republic, among many others. He is dedicated to his fitness, which helps him stay in great shape both physically and mentally.
Mobley’s goal in life is to share his faith and happiness with as many people as he can, while helping combat fatherlessness, PTSD for veterans (a cause close to his heart), and poverty. LeRoy is truly inspirational, so if you’re struggling with loneliness, depression, or simply sadness in our current circumstances, it’s well worth getting sucked into his world.
LeRoy is based in West Hollywood and is currently performing house concerts, and will be returning to public performances and festivals once the world returns to some semblance of normality.
