Blac, born Rejon Tucker, 29 is a recording artist who has performed in Bermuda for the past couple of years. His stage name BLAC stands for Beyond Limits Abilities Change. He performs at the Faceless Bermuda fashion show next month. BLAC is also releasing an album called The Acceptance Ladder. 

He uses his platform to teach and entertain, instead of boasting about what he calls frivolous aspects of life. BLAC enjoys hanging out with his friends and family and planning his upcoming music videos. One of his goals is to skydive over Bermuda, simply because no one has done it yet. Interview by Mikaela Ian Pearman.
