“Everyone is a king or a queen, I just wear my crown”, says King Comeback who is making the world take notice of him due to his positivity and courage. Born as Cameron Whigham in Atlanta, Georgia and though belonging to a rich background in music, King Comeback’s journey has not been easy.
He being paraplegic led to self doubt, fear and bouts of depression. It is not easy to survive a life while being depressed about it. But King Comeback realized his potential and the crown he should be wearing with pride.
Wear The Crown
“Each one of us is a king/ queen, I wear it proudly, that’s the only difference,” according to King Comeback who unlike other music artists wears a crown that serves him a different look than others. The crown for him matches the throne- the wheelchair he sits on.
King Comeback has changed his story by looking at it with different glasses. He has brought a positive outlook to his life that today not only benefits him but also inspires others. Today he jokes about his disability and cheers people to make sure no one around him thinks negatively. People who are disabled should be positive about life too and not think their life ends with the disability.
The Inspirational Artist
Using music, King Comeback brings awareness amongst disabled people and also the survivors of gun violence. The songs he makes are unique and have meaningful themes. ‘So Sexy’ his debut song talks about dating and interactions with the female gender.
His other song ‘B.Y.T’ (Bitch You Thought) talks about his exasperation and anger at being underestimated as he is disabled. ‘Come and Go’, another single, is on the subject of depression which is considered a taboo in the society and thus not discussed.
The song also talks about how to deal with loss. In ‘Victory Snap’ the artist tries to share the effects of gun violence on his community and culture and how it has changed everything for them.
King Comeback’s Mission
King Comeback wants people to believe in their own potential. He uses his talent of music to tell his story and express his thoughts. Music for him has been like a rehab and therapy he says. It has helped him and in the process today he is helping people using it. Music helps people who listen to it regularly.
With his music he also wants to share with people the way they should interact with disabled people. He says each one has a disability but for some people like him it is visible. We should be accepting of each other to live a life of happiness and greatness.
