His vocal talent and style has been compaired to that of Josh Groban, Michael Bublé, Donny Osmond, Andy Williams and many other artists who John Paul himself idolizes.

Matthew sings backup for John Paul on You Raise Me Up, while the eldest of the three cousins, Rebecca, duets with John Paul in All I Ask of You. All five of the "cousins" are features in 3 albums by Rose of Sharon Media, a music ministry started by John Paul's mother in 1997; with one album soloing Rose Marie Rudolph's voice.
John Paul's debut album, Reflections, is a collection of songs that he holds closest to his heart. John Paul shares his personal thoughts on Reflections:
"These songs have had a significant inpact on my life as a young musician... I wanted to wanted to sing them as a thank you to all my musical influences... But especially for my mom, who has been my greatest musical influence. She has a beautiful voice herself and has been extremely supportive of me in all my endevours. Reflections is dedicated to her for her love and support. Thanks Mom!"
