Pedro LaTorre

Motivational Speaker and Professional Drummer Pedro LaTorre has been speaking to young people for 8 years and has a personal story that connects with every audience.

Pedro was an aspiring professional baseball player who out of high school garnered the attention of several professional teams. At the young age of seventeen, Pedro tore his rotator and a very promising career became a thing of the past. His story is filled with complex challenges, heart wrenching moments, and a lifetime of powerful stories.

Today you can find Pedro and his wife Jessica in Los Angeles, California partnering with various churches and speaking across the nation in public schools. He has traveled widely as the drummer for KJ-52, and now Group 1 Crew.

Their non-profit, Hope In Motion goes into public schools and then invites students into a concert rally where the gospel is proclaimed boldly.
