18 years old, born Wilbart McCoy III, Michigan raised, dancer, rising R&B and POP singer. These are the things that come to mind when you hear the name Vedo The Singer. Starting at an early age, the young energetic artist’s mom recognized the gift that was embedded in Vedo and BEgan to request for him to sing to help him develop and embrace his wonderful talents.
As Vedo continued to sing and perform different places, including his home BEnton Harden, Michigan, the time came for him blow up the studio and start to record his own music.

Vedo says that he only wishes to make positive music and give his listeners music they can viBE to. And when you listen to songs like his new hit single Traffic Jam, you will see that his music makes you dance and feel good. More songs that illuminate the TV and radio waves are Set it on Fire, What Does it Take, If You Ever Ask Me Why and his new Pop record Give You the World. These songs and the music that Vedo makes gives an emotional appeal to his supporters BEcause the things that he sings about are his very own emotions and the things in life that he cherishes the most.
The inspiration of this innovative singer comes from familiar places to us all: R&B, Pop, Jazz, and not to mention his early start in the church. Those who give him the drive and inspiration are big time names like R. Kelly, Trey Songz and one of his all-time favorites Chris Brown.
