Vaughaligan Walwyn


Listen to Grace Still Abides

Vaughaligan Walwyn was born in St.Croix of the US Virgin Islands and raised up on the Southeast side of Houston,TX. At a young age Vaughaligan excelled at academics, music and sports which lead to him earning a full paid athletic scholarship to the prestigious Rice University.

During his time at Rice University, Vaughaligan became an All-American long jumper breaking the US Virgin Islands long jump record with a leap of 26 feet and 1 inch. His Olympic dreams were cut short when he suffered a career ending knee injury. Losing his opportunity to excel as a professional athlete fueled his passion to become a successful recording artist and after graduating from Rice with a bachelor's degree in History he began pursuing music full time.

As a rap artist in Houston,TX, Vaughaligan soon followed the popular trends of the south. He collaborated with several of the popular Houston artists and found himself living out a risky lifestyle which included sippin drank, smoking weed, chasing women and experimenting with stronger drugs. After leaving a concert one night, Vaughaligan was tazed and abused by police in a near life ending altercation. He calls that night "Shock Therapy." Since then he has devoted his life and his music to inspire the world to live righteous and chase their dreams.

Today Vaughaligan Walwyn, is a proud husband, father, inspirational recording artist, powerful motivational speaker and pastor of CT|Legacy Church on the Southeast side of Houston, only minutes away from the neighborhood he grew up in. Be on the lookout for his debut album entitled "Grace Still Abides," which features Lil Keke, Big Pokey, Baby Bash, Propain, Paul Wall, Lil Flip, Scarface, Brian Angel, Mike Jones, Bun B & Z-Ro!
