“Follow your dreams and follow your heart.”

This was the message of the two vocalists of the American music icon The Platters when they spoke of pursuing one’s dreams.


As Mose Stovall Jr. and Deneen Davis, renowned voices behind The Platters, talk about people and their generation, the millennial generation became the topic.


The millennials who were born from 1980s to early 1990s, could be the luckiest generation when it comes to advancement of technology. They have all the access to the things they want in a click of a button.

Online shops, online food deliveries, electronic books, name it and the internet have it. They just have to type the keyboards in the search engine and a bunch of lists will appear.

Stovall Jr. said in an exclusive interview with during a press conference, the “current generation is a free generation.”

“They are free to do whatever they want; they have no restraints on what they can do,” Stovall Jr. said.

True enough, other generations have to exhaust their abilities and skills just to do research.


Stovall Jr. and Davis advised the youth that their dreams should not be compromised by the opportunities and advances that they have today.

For them, aspirations in life must not be boxed out by the privileges of modern technology, rather, the generation of the millennial should utilize these chances for their own benefits.

They both strongly encourage the current generation to reach for their dreams no matter how unattainable it is and to shrug off the criticisms that they would encounter along the way.

“I like to encourage the younger people to reach for the sky, the sky is the limit,” Stovall Jr. said.

“If singing is what you want to do, you follow your dream, you follow your heart, and you do it,” he added.

“Continue to stay focus on what you love to do in this generation, because everything is freely open to them and available. Then they do not have to minimize who they are or the dreams that they have,” Davis said.
