Ricky Lacorte

About Ricky Lacorte
Ricky Lacorte epitomized the bad boy image because he was a bully, gangster and recognized by law enforcement. He was going down a dark path and told he would end up in one of two places… jail or a casket.

He was saved by the most unlikely hero… his music teacher, who he endlessly insulted. Ricky saw no potential in himself, but one sentence of encouragement from his music teacher led him to a life of music through band and choir.

Ricky’s mothers continued to support his musical endeavors and even shared a life lesson or two.

With the encouragement of his music teacher and his mom Ricky’s path took him from gangster to band member to singer to DJ/Host to competitive speaker.

His chaotic childhood didn’t stop him from achieving his dream of giving back by helping inspire the un-inspirable.
