Zach Callison debuts at Anime Los Angeles
By Matt "Rabit" Martinez
Fans of Cartoon Network’s hit series Steven Universe might be familiar with the name Zach Callison, who voices titular character Steven Universe. A very colorful and thought provoking children’s show that centers around a 14 year old boy named Steven Universe, and the adventures he goes on with the Crystal Gem Warriors that help him learn about life and acceptance. Well, it seems Callison is ready to start shaking off the child like persona that comes with playing Steven, as he brings his own, more mature, musical stylings to the attendees of Anime Los Angeles.
As the fans in the crowd waited for Callison to hit the stage, we were all wondering what we were gonna get to see. Majority of the crowd thought that he would be performing songs straight from the TV Show. However, this was far from the case.
Debuting his forthcoming album in its entirety, War! Zach Callison performed these songs for the first time in front of a live crowd. After concluding the first song, he motivated everyone to get out of their seats and come to the front of the stage, which people happily obliged. Turning this into a real concert, Callison moved across the stage singing and rapping into the fans cell phone cameras, interacting with people as much as possible, and proving that he can be a very talented front man. While singing his last song, he jumped into the crowd to finish off the show, and surround himself with the fans that came out to support him.
Zach Callison proved that he is much more than a voice actor, and that he can be a real showman. His debut album War! is set to come out in spring, but has no official release date yet.
