About the Artist
Though it seems like yesterday, Dave has been in the music business for thirty years. He spent the first half of his career touring as a background singer, appearing on 2Pac’s “Brenda’s Got a Baby” and Keep Ya Head Up,” and becoming a member of the group Blackstreet. For the last fifteen years however, he has enjoyed fame as a solo artist. His first two solo albums, Ghetto Hymns and Chicago 85, both went gold and included the top ten hit singles “My Favorite Girl” and “One Woman Man.”
Since Witness Protection in 2008, Dave has reunited with Teddy Riley of Blackstreet and has been successfully touring together for the last five years. He has also found the time to hone his acting skills, appearing in the Kim Fields-directed movie A Royal Birthday and several star-studded plays, including Issues: We All Got Em, directed by Latteras Whitefiled, A Fool and His Money, written and directed by David Talbert, and Me and Mrs. Jones, written and directed by J.D. Lawrence.
Additionally, Dave was just named as a spokesperson for ZYPPAH – used for the treatment of snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Dave struggles with this health challenge, and he is joining the campaign, along with other celebrities, to bring awareness to the chronic condition.
