Rasheem Ford is a New York based performer who hails from Long Island, New York. Growing up, he enjoyed singing, acting, dancing and all other aspects of art. Whether it was putting on plays with his cousins and friends, or being involved in productions at local community theaters; performing has always been his passion.
Rasheem was very fortunate to have grown up with a very supportive family who always steered him in the direction to follow his dreams. His biggest influence in life was his mother who encouraged him to "never give up and when things get difficult, to just stand up". Although she is no longer with him today, her words and her support still serve as one of the main driving forces behind all his success.
When Rasheem is not onstage he enjoys the finer things in life such as a good slice of pizza, watching movies and driving around with his friends. Shopping, the colors blue and green and belting out 90's power ballads in the shower also make the cut of some of his favorite things!
Rasheem lives by the words of James Dean; "Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today." Keeping that in mind, he continues to learn and grow by pursuing his dream as a performer and constantly pushes himself to hone his craft each and everyday.
