Choosing to pursue his music career as an independent artist, Ron has sold close to 1.5 million digital singles since he got his start on TRL, and one of his most notable singles, "A Drop in the Ocean" has sold over a half a million copies. The song still garners millions of plays, with one fan-made video acquiring a staggering 21 million views online [and growing.] His music has also been showcased on hit television series over the last year, such as The Voice [NBC], Vampire Diaries [CW], 90210 [CW], and So You Think You Can Dance [FOX]. The placements have sent two of his albums into the top 100 on all of iTunes simultaneously.
