Sonny Rose Born as Teekaun W.E. Atchison on November 20, 1979. Teekaun was the youngest child of 4 and raised by his widowed mother Rose Atchison. Rose was left to care for 4 children after her husband William Ellis Atchison died when Teekaun was just 4 years old. As a young adult, Teekaun started writing poetry to express his feelings. Later his feelings and poetry turned into music. Ever since he wrote his first song on September 27, 2011, he has not been able to put the pen and pad down since.
