Cedric’s upbringing took place in Georgia during the 1970s. He had a strong passion for theatre, showcasing his skills through ballet and ballroom dancing.

By the time he turned 17, he had already established himself as a professional dancer.

However, three months later, he was left homeless and could not cover his rent.

A stranger named Ethel Smith extended an act of kindness by offering him a job at a temp agency. This gesture of goodwill provided Cedric with a lifeline.

He actively extended his support to those in need by visiting detention centers and shelters and even reaching out to individuals experiencing homelessness on the streets.
