Interview w/ Triple-Threat Entertainer Carl Thornton (@Carl_T_Music) on #TheSashaMarinaShow
Singer, Songwriter, and Actor Carl Thornton was born in North Carolina, but at the tender age of three his parents moved to Long Island, New York and there he was raised. Carl began singing at the age of seven in an elementary school chorus. While on stage of the very first performance he had an epiphany, that singing is what he wanted to do with his life.
He attended The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, H.B. Studios and has taken classes at the Broadway Dance Center. He is currently studying voice with Robert Marks.
Carl played the role of Benny in the National Tour of "RENT," was Eat Moe in the musical "5 Guys Named Moe," Detroit in "From My Hometown" and JoJo in "You Shouldn't Have Told." His talents have taken him to such places as Austria, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Holland, Istanbul, Dubai and Portugal. In 2013 he was contracted to tour and sing in China.
Carl is currently singing with New York City Swing which is taking him all over the East. One of Carl's favorite quotes is "nothing beats a failure but a try," words he lives by daily.
Triple threat talent Carl Thornton debuts the perfect summer dance anthem that will inspire and ignite the clubs with his debut single, “Get Up!” From the opening notes, one can hear a melodic and irresistible drive with an electrifying and pulsating beat that entices you to move with unabashed joy until the song is over.
“GET UP!” is now available at iTunes, Amazon, and CDbaby.com. Four exclusive remixes will be released soon with an accompanying music video shot at Harlem Gay Pride Parade in June 2014 and will be released later this summer.
