Music With A Purpose: To Change Lives And The World
(MediaQuire) Houston, TX – Vaughaligan “Von Won” Walwyn was born in the U.S. Virgin Islands and raised on Houston’s southeast side. After this all-American athlete and record holder in long jump had a career-ending knee injury about the same time he lost his father to AIDS, it put him on a journey of bad decisions which lead him to being repeatedly tazed and abused by police – on a night he refers to as “Shock Therapy.”
This event pushed Von Won to put down his reckless lifestyle of drinking, drug abuse and chasing riches, to living a life of integrity. Von Won Walwyn has emerged as an inspirational recording artist, writer and powerful motivational speaker, who challenges youth and young adults around the world to pursue their dreams and overcome all obstacles to reach their goal.
Walwyn also heads up Von Won Ministries in Houston; a faith based organization that targets at-risk youth in its ‘Mission Possible’ program. While this ministry is spearheaded by Von Won, it supports several ministers and operates in many dynamic functions that share a common goal – to change the world through faith-based media.
Von Won Walwyn is a graduate of Rice University, all-American athlete/rapper, and a dedicated husband and father whose transition released him from drugs and alcohol and empowered him to become a successful gospel artist and motivational speaker.
Von Won set out to change the negative impact many of today’s role models in music and athletics have had on young people and, by raising the bar, he has now given America’s youth a positive role model to emulate!
Von Won Walwyn has been featured in the Houston Chronicle and appeared on the Great Day Houston television show, CW News Fix and more. He has also been the opener for Fred Hammond, T.D. Jakes, Kirk Franklin and Lecrae, among other great celebrities.

Von Won was also ordained on the day of the Shock Therapy CD/DVD release party so he can also be called Pastor Vaughaligan Walwyn now. He and his wife started Legacy Church in August 2012 with monthly Saturday night services. On January 19, 2013, Legacy Church will be having a launch service at 7pm that will start their weekly Saturday night services. For more information on Legacy, please see www.thelegacychurch.tv .
