Vaughaligan Walwyn also known as Von Won was born in St. Croix and was raised in Houston, Texas. At a young age Von Won discovered his passion for music and sports. Vaughaligan became an NCAA All-American while at Rice University leaping 26 feet 1 inch, breaking the US Virgin Islands national long jump record. His Olympic dreams were cut short however when he injured his knee. He graduated from Rice University with a bachelor’s degree in History and quickly began pursuing music full time. He later found out he was losing his father to AIDS, causing Von to fall into a severe state of depression. He started experimenting with drugs, drinking profusely and partying. The turning point came one night when Von Won was leaving a concert. That night he was tased and beaten by police. The altercation nearly ended his life. Months later while attending Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, Vaughaligan decided to give his life whole heartedly to Jesus Christ. Today Von is an inspirational recording artist, powerful motivational speaker and the pastor of CT|Legacy Church in Houston, Texas. He continues to be a proud and inspiring member of the community, helping others through his music and guidance. He and his wife, Kyla, have four beautiful children.
