Shawn wrote and sang the song "Visions of a Sunset" for the Mr. Holland's Opus film soundtrack. He got his singing start with the Philadelphia Boys Choir & Chorale at the age of 8. Most recently, Stockman started his own record label called Soul Chemistry Projects. It was hoped that his ability to find and groom new talent will launch the label to success, although none of his charges has scored a major distribution deal.
