Born to a single mother, Trevor Thomas aka Seckond Chaynce and his two siblings were raised in an area plagued by drugs and violence in Jacksonville, Florida. Early on Trevor’s musical interest, talent and gifts were obvious. His mother was very protective and attempted to shield and shelter her children from the negative activities that were prevalent in the neighborhood. However, upon reaching his teen years, he began to be influenced by the neighborhood trap stars, Hip Hop Rappers & family members he idolized, who touted the rewards of the drug dealing, fast money lifestyle. In 9th grade, Trevor was more involved and interested in drug distribution than the educational institution, which resulted in his dropping out of school-but his love and passion for music remained a constant.
After dropping out of school he devoted more time pursuing his musical passion and aspirations. This pursuit lead him to travel and live between Jacksonville and Atlanta, Georgia. Finally two years later he made the music industry connection that would catapult his career. Just as he was about to ink a deal with a major record label, things fell apart and the deal was never consummated. This forced him to move to Tampa, Florida. There he discovered his mother was homeless and living with a relative. Trevor decided that the only short term option to remedy the situation was to return to drug dealing. His long term plan was to try to obtain his GED, but after several attempts he abandoned that effort.
Realizing that his lifestyle would ultimately lead to his ruin-be it incarceration or death, Trevor realized that what he was missing wasn’t the GED but GOD. That day Seckond Chaynce was born (again). Serving, worshiping, and spreading the uncompromising TRUTH of GOD and HIS word is Seckond Chaynce’s life’s purpose. He serves not only on Sunday mornings, but each and every day of his life. Chaynce has felt the HOLY GHOST and its’ power of transformation.
Update: Chaynce did receive his High School diploma, has college credits and will continue to pursue his theological degree. GOD is good!
