The journey continues for Hudson's Sean Delaney  when he takes the stage this evening at the Upperdeck in Gloversville. The aspiring hip hop artist will be performing with other up and coming young artists including T.J. Fredette, the brother of basketball standout Jimmer Fredette.

The 1998 graduate of Hudson High School has been writing rap songs since he was 12 years old.

"I was inspired by Jay-Z  and my English teacher Michele Pierro," he said.

Delaney  has  performed in Hudson and Albany as well as in bigger cities such as Washington D.C., Baltimore and New York City.

"Many of those performances were to promote my 'Open Your Eyes' video," he said.
