Benjamin Lerner's great grandfather is Irving Berlin, who wrote “God Bless America”. A musical prodigy, Benjamin was playing full classical piano concerts at a young age. But by his early twenties, he was an IV heroin and crack cocaine addict. Now he's been sober for 3+ years. He expresses his struggle through word and song. His original music combines classical piano compositions and rap. His first full album is planned for release in 2020.
