His father was absent; his mother was volatile and abusive.At the age of twelve Ryan was sent to Virginia's juvenile facility of last resort. He was placed in solitary confinement. He was uncontrollable uncontainable with little hope for the future. In 2011 at the age of twenty-four Ryan won a nationwide competition hosted by New York's Metropolitan Opera beating out 1200 other talented singers. Today he is a rising star performing major roles at the Met and Europe's most prestigious opera houses.SING FOR YOUR LIFE chronicles Ryan's suspenseful racially charged and artistically intricate journey from solitary confinement to stardom. Daniel Bergner takes readers on Ryan's path toward redemption introducing us to a cast of memorable characters--including the two teachers from his childhood who redirect his rage into music and his long-lost father who finally reappears to hear Ryan sing. Bergner illuminates all that it takes--technically creatively--to find and foster the beauty of the human voice. And Sing for Your Life sheds unique light on the enduring and complex realities of race in America.
