As an artist, Orlando has performed in over 40 cities in the United States and has been featured on major Christian television shows such as TCT's I'm just saying, The Word Network, Bobby Jones Gospel, and TBN's Praise the Lord.  As a collaborator, Orlando has written songs with some of the industry's most sought after songwriters – Eddie Tucker, Steve Siler, Dwight Liles and Tony Wood -to name a few.  Orlando is a well rounded singer/songwriter who has an unrelenting work ethic in both the studio and on the road.


On the horizon, Orlando is set to release his debut project in Gospel music with his forthcoming self titled album Turn The World Off.  For this effort, Orlando has tapped the skills of hit making producer Chuck Alkazian of Pearl Sound Studios (Canton, MI) to capture his highly unique musical talent and anointing.  


​Orlando is musically inclined, lyrically complete, and approachable.  He is an artist who seeks God daily to impact more people with Jesus Christ through his music.  He is a dedicated singer/songwriter, who has taken the road less traveled, gaining support with relentless touring and sharing of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  When asked how he sees himself, his simple answer is, "As a servant of the Lord and God's people."
