Jon AlipertoBorn November 3rd, in Saint Paul Minnesota.
At a very young age, Jon moved with his mom and two brothers out to Decoma, CO.
He wasn't the best kid growing up, running the streets with the wrong crowd and living in a household where he was physically abused by his step-father.
Jon's mom moved the children to Denver to get away from the abuse, to 44th and Federal, where Jon found other friends to help him continue living a life style of trouble.
While in juvenile hall Jon was introduced to Christ.
After he had spent three years there Jon knew that his music had to be directed toward God and his new understanding of what Christ did for him on the cross; so he was baptized!
Jon always had the talent for singing and making beats, and as a new believer he started writing songs that reflected this.
He knew that making music was something he always wanted to do and that God called him to do this; so he started learning more about changing his poetry into songs and creating beats.
Soon he saved up enough money to buy a keyboard and computer with pro tools.
Two friends and Jon's little brother taught him how to rap. He combined this in his music. One of the artists he listened to was 2Poc.
Jon formed his way of rapping after 2Poc's way of talking about personal life experiences.
He also listened to Cross Movement, Gospel Gangstaz, Lecrae and Grits just to name a few.
In May of 2008 Jon met the love of his life, Rebecca, at a show he was doing at The Fat Frog. He was performing the song,
Rise Upfrom his CD
Prayers for mercy.
A friend named John Warboys told him that Rebecca wanted to meet him and five months later, on September 2, 2008, they got married!
Jon said normally he wouldn't marry anyone that soon but Rebecca was different from any woman he had ever met; she reminds him of his mom, who had died at the young age of 48 in 2004.
Rebecca has been the stabilizer in Jon's life; looking past his disability that has Jon on S.S.I.
The Song, "Jesus Gave His Life", was one song that he was inspired to write for her.
After talking to Rebecca over the phone, as she was telling him how his songs sound just as good as what she hears on Christian radio stations, she told him that he has a career staring him right in the face.
She is the biggest fan and supporter of Jon's talents, giving him feedback about his music and being that help-mate that God knows all men need!
Jon Aliperto has performed at The Fat Frog, in Littleton, Blondie Fire House, The Strait Home Bar off Federal and Karaoke at Armeda's.
