During a recent Advanced Session Recording lab in August, a team of four students worked on their recording project with local R&B and pop singer Stefon4u. They recorded the Orlando singer and his three backup singers in Full Sail’s Audio Temple, a full-featured recording studio.
Previously, the team spent two days recording musicians who performed the backing track to Stefon4u’s song.

Paula Walker, one of the students on the recording team, says she knew Stefon4u (Stefon Washington) and the musicians from the local music scene. She asked the impromptu group to practice the song together prior to going into the studio to record the lyrics and instrumentals separately.
“Everybody had great communication with each other,” says Stefon, who is also a singer and host for Disney. “I’m all about speed and precision, and they were definitely professional. It was a great job.”
