Goldenchild, born Seth Othniel Samuel Watson, was raised in a loving but strict and religious household.

He attributes his mother with helping to nurture his interest in music. He would beat on the surface of everything he found around his childhood home, so his mother bought him a drum set. He honed his skills as a drummer learning from church musicians and eventually became the lead drummer for Faith Temple C.O.G.I.C. while still in high school. Ultimately, Goldenchild was determined to be more than a

drummer. He wanted to expand his skillset as an artist. He comes from a long line of family members that became engineers and owned studios. This is what inspired him to enroll in the Studio Engineering program at Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL. It was here that he learned to create his own beats.

Upon graduation, he opened his own studio (House of Watt Studio) and began to record and produce local talent.

Realizing he needed money to brand his production company, Big Hed Productionz (B.H.P.), he used his degree to his advantage and landed an assistant engineer position with long time musician and friend of the family Steve "Stone" Huff and his production company "Stone Productions". It was here that he worked with amazing talents like Avant, Keke Wyatt, Joe, and Joan Rezorio. Goldenchild worked with Mr. Huff for one year. Leaving with what he had learned, he resumed focusing on his production company full time.

Goldenchild found success because of his business savvy and musicianship. His artists performed alongside artists such as Tonex, Kierra "Kiki" Sheard, Kurt Carr, Dorinda Clark-Cole, New Direction, and the Chicago Mass Choir. Consequently, GoldenChild, initially his artists' hype man, was often mistaken as an artist himself. Eventually, he secured a record deal for himself and his cousin. The group Chozin by God (CBG) was formed. They received radio airplay with the two singles

"Do Dat There" and "Handz Up." Following this, Goldenchild returned to work alongside Steve "Stone" Huff as a Production Assistant. While working at Stone Productions the group landed a song on Darius Brook's album entitled

"Hands Up." However, in early 2009 CBG disbanded and Goldenchild emerged as a formidable solo artist, releasing his debut album "Freedom" in 2010. His first single "So Amazin" featuring Eddie V. created major buzz.

Currently, he is putting the finishing touches on his latest album Trinity 3:1 and is performing at live events to promote the single "The Greatness of The Lord" from his album. He endeavors to inspire the youth and older adults. His music bridges the gap between secular and traditional gospel music and transcends age. His music communicates the power of the Gospel to help people overcome drug, alcohol, and sexual abuse. He wants people to know that God can reach the unreachable and save anyone from a life of sin. He wants the world to know that the devil is a liar and only seeks to steal. kill, and destroy.

Golden Child's mission is to use his music to serve as a reminder that Jesus is the truth, the way, and the life.
