The School Entertainment & Activities Program (SEAP) Produces Another Musical Super-Star: DeLon

Past Artists Include Destiny's Child, Britney Spears and Usher

LOS ANGELES, June 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Born and raised in L.A. but reared in Sri Lankan values and culture, rapper DeLon has challenged the "commonality" of rap today. His Sri Lankan decent has already created a base sense of curiosity amongst his rapping peers, and this is only heightened by his uncommon lyrics and highly entertaining performance style. DeLon, a natural born artist perfected the art of being a performer at the age of 12. It's a miracle this young multicultural rapper had any links to hip-hop being that he was restricted from television, radio and any other outside interferences as young boy. But once introduced to the genius lyrics of the late hip-hop legend Notorious B.I.G he knew that writing, producing and performing was his passion and calling.

"My purpose is to bring unity amongst people and to educate them through my lyrics. The rap world is saturated with rappers that speak of money, hoes, and clothes. I'm attempting not to make that my focus. Granted everyone knows that those lyrics sell, but I've presented a way to make music without focusing on those worn-out issues," stated DeLon.

Today, DeLon is one of the most popular and highly requested artists on the renowned School Entertainment & Activities Program (SEAP) tour since Usher in the early 90's. The SEAP program is over 30 years old and is based out of Los Angeles, CA. The tour offers upcoming artist the opportunity to build a fan base and perfect their performances. SEAP has launched the successful careers of over 90% of its participants such as Usher, SWV, Tyrese, Dru Hill, Boys II Men, Destiny's Child, Britney Spears and many more.

DeLon is expected to take the same successful path as those great performers before him. DeLon has become so popular that he's been asked to continue the tour throughout the year and has built a fan base close to 10,000 people. His next scheduled date on the SEAP tour is
