"Silver is not an autobiography, but a tribute to what she is and who she is to me." -YungChris 

Christopher began dancing and entertaining at a very young age, by the time he reached 11 Thomas was already being featured in commercials. Taking a break during his teen years to focus on sports and college Thomas returned to his true love, dance, and in 2007 began traveling the world.

Thomas moved back home to Houston a year later and started his own dance company, Sonkiss’d Dance Theater. With Sonkiss’d Thomas mentored dancers. He also provided opportunities for them to expand their talents to become more valuable in the competitive market of entertainment. Thomas now has past dancers who work and tour with Taylor Swift, and Beyoncé. 

Eight years later Thomas is still directing the company and now creating opportunities in the corporate and private event entertainment industry as a Dj/Mc. From corporate conventions to weddings and Bat/Bar Mitzvahs, Thomas can create experiences for guests that can be cherished for a lifetime. To sum it all up, Thomas specializes in making people have a great time.
