Young artist, Kay had to work on his “perfectionist” attitude. This was one of his major setbacks, as he was still tormented whether the crowds would receive his music. This attitude led him to hide his songs from the public. But, he was shocked when people started telling him how much his songs resonated in their lives; this realization made him change his attitude.

To build a successful music career, you should always strive to work hard and not give up easily. According to Kay, there is no shortcut to success. As an artist, you can quickly let go, especially when you feel like your music is getting you nowhere. It can also break your heart when crowds don’t respond positively to your music.
Kay shares that you need to cultivate your patience and determination even when you face adversities. You still have to believe in your talent, perfect your sound, be focused, and eventually it will happen. Kay Franklin believes he has what it takes to reach greater heights in the world of music.
