David is a Miami native groomed and nurtured by his loving parents. His mother Angela, was an active member of a quartet-singing group named, The Miracle Lights; this allowed David to be surrounded by Gospel music/musicians and pushed him to hone his craft.
By the age of 12, he was introduced to the music and ministry of Pastor Marc Cooper and Cooper Temple COGIC. He was featured on a Gospel project titled “Jesus Is The Real Thing by The Miami Music Workshop Choir.” From then, he became the full-time drummer for Cooper Temple COGIC.

With this weekly club gig, David has shared the stage with artists ranging from “John Legend” to “Lil Wayne.” The visibility of his skills began to broaden, allowing for David to explore other avenues in his performance career.
