While studying in school, Charles wanted to try himself in arts, sports, and literature. He started playing the clarinet and shares how during his first lesson, the teacher showed him the B-note, wrote it down on paper, and he thought: wow, this is easy! Between the ages of 11 and 13, the record producer began looking at where successful African Americans go, and realized that most of them were in the entertainment industry. "I made up my mind that entertainment was where everyone was, and music was something that I was good at, so I started to pursue that," he says.
