4 in 2007, he had already made a living as a singer, songwriter and arranger in the small Chicago music scene. His talent got him through the challenges and Willie eventually emerged as one of the five chosen to be part of P. Diddy's all-male supergroup. Despite missing his girlfriend and son so much while he was filming in New York, he stayed on the show to serve as an inspiration for his child.

He is currently working with band mates in producing their debut album.
