When Ne-Yo Was 17… he was just as fabulous as he is today!
Ne-yo (born Shaffer C. Smith) was just a regular old teen at a performing arts school. Originally from Arkansas, Ne-Yo grew up in a single parent home Las Vegas, Nevada.
His mother moved the family to Vegas after she and his dad spit up and while he was growing up, it was there he discovered his love for and interest in music. Ne-Yo began writing songs at an early age but he also had a passion for doodling:
“I went to a performing-arts high school. I wasn’t even there for music….I was there for visual design and drawing and painting and stuff like that.”

Long took the pulpit at precisely 9 a.m., dressed in a khaki-colored suit bearing the New Birth emblem. He emerged with his wife and held her hand for the next two to three minutes as the crowd stood clapping.
