A.D. a Chicago based Singer / Actor, and native of Gary, IN knew from a young age that he would be an entertainer. Playtime was often substituted for choir rehearsals and practicing speeches for school assemblies. At age 8 he auditioned for Broadway conductor Rob Mikulski and won a role in a production of Little Shop of Horrors. By the time he entered high school it was clear what he wanted to be. Throughout high school he began to record and tour with recording gospel choirs and star in local theater productions. By 19 A.D. began to achieve success in theater professionally starring as Coalhouse in the NIETF foundations Unity Event production of Ragtime. His classical voice training has garnered him lead roles in Phantom of The Opera, Les Miserables, The Secret Garden and many others. Recently he has been seen performing in Chicago with Theater47, ETA Creative Arts, and Black Ensemble Theater to name a few.
As much as he is a classical vocalist, he's a soul singer at heart. When not on the theater stage or in front of a camera he can be seen singing in bands across the region for weddings, corporate events, fundraisers and church. He has credits working as a live and session background vocalist for artists on major labels and well established independent artists. A.D. is an artist committed to hard work and self – growth. You can often find him working with his vocal coach or honing his craft in acting and dancing classes.
He gives back by visiting his old high school and community theater programs coaching and mentoring young aspiring performers – “Never forget who believed in your gift when no one else would listen”
When the going gets tough…. you get tougher and you WIN!!
