Remember Singer Maxwell? His Father Died in a Plane Crash When He Was 3, Making Him Deeply Religious

Singer Maxwell opened up about losing his father and his voice.

Fans of singer Gerald Maxwell Rivera, better known as Maxwell may not know that the musician has been battling against adversity all his life.

Maxwell's misfortunes started when he was just a child, and that loss has overshadowed his life.

MAXWELL WAS ORPHANED AT 3

When Maxwell was just 3 years old, his father died in a plane crash, and the tragic loss made him deeply religious,

It was in church that Maxwell started to sing, and so found his vocation and his path in life.

LOSING HIS VOICE AT 36

At the age of 36, Maxwell was submitted to surgery to his vocal cords and risked losing his voice for good. Thankfully, the operation was a success and he recovered fully.

After being away from the music industry for 7 years, Maxwell returned to the charts.

LIVING HIS BEST LIFE AT 45

Now in his 40s, Maxwell admits that maturity has brought balance and happiness into his life, after a lifetime of uncertainty:

“I came to realize so many good things about people that were always really there and then so many bad things about people who really weren’t. When you turn 40 and when you cross a decade, God shows you the truth and you just sort of have to take it and run with it, and basically make the right choices. And that’s kind of where I’m at right now.”

MAXWELL'S MUSICAL COMEBACK

After being away from the music industry for 7 years, Maxwell returned to the charts.

The inventor of Neo-soul has reinvented himself, and now reveals a deeper, more mature outlook - both in his life and in his music.

He is very discreet about his personal life but is said to be in a longterm relationship with model and TV personality Julissa Bermudez.

WHAT FANS DON'T KNOW ABOUT MAXWELL

Seeing Maxwell embody the essence of cool on stage, with thousands of female fans screaming his name, it's had to imagine he was once an awkward and shy teen.

Maxwell admitted that as a teenager he was gawky and clumsy and that when he started singing none of his friends could imagine him making it on stage.

The shy boy is now a smooth performer who exudes charm and absolute cool out of every pore. Growing up great is the best revenge.
