Believe it or not the Choreographer/Dancer who spent close to a decade creating the moves behind the world famous Mariah Carey, originally wanted to be an Astronaut. Whether on video or live performances, Mariah soared to fame assisted by the moves of “Emilio Austin, Jr., p.k.a.,“Buddha Stretch.”

 

His dance crew, Elite Force provided the edge behind Mariah’s well known videos and live shows.Though being an Astronaut was his dream, it ended when he first saw the television show Soul Train. His other influences included his cousin Charles, Michael Jackson (the early years),The Lockers and The Electric Boogaloos.
