The youngest of a large musical family, Chuck Lounge was born to use his voice to inspire others.  After seeing how the media affects our lives, Chuck decided to use his talents of speaking, singing, writing, producing, directing, and acting, to uplift and empower his audiences to spread positivity into their lives and communities.

On July 22, 2019, Chuck was struck with the tragedy of his son being murdered in a gun crossfire as he was preparing to go to work.  Then ironically Chuck was hit with another tragedy only 48 hours later on July 24, 2019, of his mother passing away from a heart attack.  Chuck has dedicated his life to be not only a symbol of spiritual strength, endurance, and advocacy against senseless gun violence but a motivator of self-empowerment for success.

 

After being diagnosed with blood cancer in 2003, Chuck spent years in and out of hospitals yet finally overcame his condition by beginning a vegan lifestyle in 2017 and eventually adopting a pescatarian lifestyle permanently. Chuck is a certified holistic nutritionist and chef. In 2018 Chuck started the non-profit organization, E.L.O.E. – Every Level of Empowerment and a parallel eCommerce business as he transitioned to motivational speaking to inspire others to live healthier lives.
