Ever since he was a young boy, he had a real passion for singing. He discovered that singing, especially in his native language (Spanish) made him very happy and very joyous.
He began to sing with friends at parties and by himself. Many people (his musician friends included) were giving him advice on how to sing better. He had carefully listened to them and tried to adapt all of the new "techniques" they were suggesting him to employ.

Now, 30 hours later of non-surgical voice repair and the Vocal Science technique, read below what John had said after struggling with physical, emotional and vocal strain:
