NEW YORK-— Filled with talented individuals. Many of them sharing their gifts with us through passing.. Using the streets as their own personal concert hall putting on a show for anyone who takes a moment to stop and appreciate their skill. We had the pleasure to get familiar with one trumpeter at Grand central station, whose name is Eganam Segbefia, goes by Ego for short. A stylish, charismatic and humble character. We listened to Ego play a few songs, including a favorite to the frequent travelers at Grand central “Fight of the Bumblebee”. As so many people stopped by to listen and paid respects with claps of appreciation and by dropping money in his bag. From first glance, I admired the T-shirt he was wearing, with the words FEAR KILLS DREAMS, a motto that firmly fits his brand, that he has worked so hard to perfect.
