Joshua Lee Minnick(aka Joshie Sullivan) Debuts On International-Hip-Hop.com and the Global Attack Mixtape!Posted by: Shawn Petrie / Category: Artists
Joshua Lee Minnick (AKA, Joshie Sullivan) was born on December 27,1995 in Roanoke VA and grew up in Basset VA.
As a boy he always loved singing and performing in front of his family. He frequently sung for his grandmother, father, mother & aunt (Joann, Butch, Mamie, & Pattie) and they always knew he had talent.
The first time he sang in front of a crowd was in the 7th grade, it was in front of the school. Everyone thought he was great, and he loved it. During this time in his life he was going through alot so he started writing his own songs as a way to vent his emotional frustration and anger. His mom, Melissa Minnick, had breast cancer, and his cousin had passed away, this was very difficuly for him and it was a tough time to go through.
Joshua perservered and just kept writing and singing, that was his biggest escape. He started hanging out with an old friend to keep his mind off things and he found out the hard way they were not good freinds for him. When he realized it, it was too late and he had gotten screwed over, it was devistating. He fell in love with someone and then all of a sudden they hated him. He was real depressed after that happened, he could not do anything except continue to write songs.
Heartbreak, he learned that while a fact of life, can also inspire many songs. He wrote all the time just to get all of his emotion out. One night he was out with his mom, she was telling him a story about how she found out her friend Kims mom had passed away so they went to see her. Kims daughter, Courtney and Joshua became best friends, they just clicked like she was his sister.
Joshua was happy again because he had people around him to hang out with. They gave him his nickname “Joshie Sullivan” which he started using as his name all the time. That made life easier for him.
Now he’s just trying to make it and become a singer, which has always been his dream. he wants people to know him, and accept him for who he is. Joshie Sullivan, singer, songwriter, and hopefully the next big thing.
