Surviving a tragedy is such an awe-inspiring and life-altering experience. Not many people get a second chance in life after going through a major accident. August Summers, formerly known as Swagger Splash, is reinventing himself to inspire fans to live life to the fullest.
The talented artist survived a difficult point in his life, and it made him realize that life is so fragile and that he will only live once. The hip-hop artist had a severe accident while touring the Philippines a few months ago. He got hit by two trucks while riding a scooter to scout the terrain. As a result, August ended up in the hospital with four broken ribs, a skull fracture, and a hematoma on his lungs. Fortunately, he turned out all right and recovered.
This season of reinventing himself is changing not only his character but also his music. While his passion for danceable songs is still intact, he is slowly transitioning to performing songs that tell of his life story to inspire his followers. Having been known all his career to be famous among young audiences, he knows that he has the potential to influence them to live life with meaning.
August started his career beautifully some years back. Music’s strong influence in his life is attributed to the fantastic culture of Louisiana, where he was born and raised. While he initially gained exposure as an artist in his hometown, he still decided to relocate to Panama City, Florida, to get better opportunities.
It was while he was in Florida that August started to get the gigs that made him well-known to his present followers. He jammed in independent music arenas, colleges, universities, corporate functions, big parties, and famous night clubs. He widened his network effectively and started to gain recognition for his talent. The hit single “Around Me” was the turning point in his rapping career as it gained worldwide acknowledgment. The last single he released reached number nine in the DUC German Charts in 2019.
Aside from his rapping, August is also well remembered by fans because of his dancing abilities. He knows how to energize a crowd and show them how to have good fun. His unique fashion sense is also something that fans find interesting. Over the years, he has been in a state of constant change to stay relevant to a new generation of music fans. His inherent ability to embrace change regardless of the season in his life has opened more opportunities to him than he anticipated.
His talents may be the same, but his message is rapidly changing into something that makes a lasting impact on the lives of his fans. His accident proved to be such a positive catalyst for self-improvement. His accident may have traumatized him, but it has given him new inspiration and purpose. This purpose is his constant motivation to get out of bed each day and think of the countless ways he can positively impact others.
August is making the most of his second chance in life. He is performing not only for himself but mostly to inspire his fans to live the same way. Follow August Summers on Instagram today for updates on his upcoming events.
