The Weeknd , byname of Abel Makkonen Tesfaye , born February 16, , Toronto , Ontario , Canada , Canadian rhythm-and-blues singer and songwriter who was perhaps best known for his explicit songs about sex and drugs, many of which were autobiographical, and for his soaring falsetto and its singular tremolo. When he was in grade 11, he quit school and left home, devoting himself to unbridled partying. Tesfaye eventually landed a job at American Apparel and at the same time began writing songs about drug use , casual sex, and alienation. He crossed paths with musician and producer Jeremy Rose, and they started working together. The songs, credited to The Weeknd, were uploaded as audio files to the video-sharing Web site YouTube in late ; their popularity grew exponentially after they were posted to the blog of Canadian rapper Drake. With Drake as an admirer and backer, Tesfaye had greater access to recording opportunities, and by March he had put together a nine-song mixtape, House of Balloons , which he released as a free download. Tesfaye made his first public appearance as The Weeknd in a Toronto nightclub in July that year. He released two more free mixtapes in , Thursday and Echoes of Silence.

Expect her to either write you off during her mission or pressure you to show interest in the church. I know he loves me with all of his heart. So basically we were lies to for years. Would she be okay with having a home that is split religiously. I'm not trying to be mean, just very clear.

I will keep reading, but it looks like most of the stuff about racism and polygamy has been "adequately" explained away by updates to LDS. He is studying to get into a residency program and I struggle to get his time. Well, sometimes they cant.
