From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Paul "Sonny" Sandoval (born 1974 in San Ysidro, California), is an American-born singer of Guamanian, Italian, Hawaiian, and Hispanic descent.

He grew up in the ghetto area of San Diego, and joined a gang at 13. He was a heavy smoker of marijuana and a drinker during his teenage years. However, in 1991, Sandoval's mother, a devout Christian, died of leukemia. Sandoval recalled later that he saw God in his mother's eyes while she was on her deathbed. He turned his life around very quickly, and became a Christian. He became a very talented Christian emcee, and when his cousin Wuv Bernardo joined a band with his friend Marcos Curiel, he was asked to join too. At first he turned them down, but later changed his mind.

P.O.D. was formed in 1992, complete with bassist Traa Daniels.

Sandoval proclaims his musical roots to belong to reggae, rock, and rap - the cocktail which best personifies P.O.D.'s work.
