Legaci Interview / Discovered by Justin Bieber

When Anne Claire Danan called me up one day and asked if I wanted to help her cover a story on Legaci I have to admit I was like, “who?!?”.  We’ve all been there at one point or another.  When someone you know helps you lead the way to new experiences.  After saying yes I was on my way to just that.

Legaci is an R&B group from the San Francisco Bay Area.  When Anne Claire showed me clips of their performances on her iPhone (thanks to YouTube) I was instantly impressed.  From her tiny iPhone speakers and screen I was brought back to the times when I listened to groups like Boyz II Men, Jodeci, Soul for Real.  Legaci was discovered by Scooter Braun, Justin Bieber’s manager.  Legaci had been posting covers on YouTube and Justin’s manager decided they had the right sound to tour with Justin on his My World Tour.  Legaci is currently formed by:  Micah Tolentino, Chris Abad, Delfin Lazaro, Dominic Manuel and Jason Atencion.  These are a great group of guys and are the real deal.  They are currently touring on the My World Tour with Justin Bieber.  I’m glad I got a chance to meet and photograph them but I’m really excited to see what they’ll be doing next in their musical careers!
