Allan "Sparky" Starks planted the seed for IcanU in 2006 when he combined his artistry and passion for music technolgy with his commitment to you people. Spark has more than 25 years of experience in the music industry, providing technical expertise for studio recordings and live performances for Stevie Wonder, Beyonce, Gloria Estefan, Eminem, Foreigner, American Idol, and many more. While taking a hiatus from touring with musical acts, Sparky began teaching audio production to students in an after-school program. He immediately realized the positive impact the class had on the lives of his students. The class provided many students the outlet to express themselves and courage to explore their futures. Students that once weren't serious completing school, now are accomplishing academic achievement in college.
