After many years of study, he earned three music degrees (BS -Music Ed, BS -Audio Engineering, BA -Violin Performance) from Southern Illinois University.

At the age 25, Lee found himself performing alongside Stevie Wonder. That same year, he made it on the MTV show Making the Band where Sean “Diddy: Combs named Lee, “The band’s secret weapon”. With that exposure his fame and acclaim began to soar. It’s no surprise that Lee would attract the attention of legendary music producer, Quincy Jones. After hearing him play once, he was signed to Jones' management company, “Quincy Jones Productions.”

This partnership made him the first non-athlete and violinist to earn such acclaim. England became a popular entertainer for a variety of athletic events. Ranging from basketball camp to shoe releases and charity events for LeBron James, Chris Paul and Dwayne Wade. Not to mention an impressive count of halftime shows in 26 NBA arenas.
