Infusing old-school and new-school R&B, singer/actor/songwriter A'NDRE exploded on the music scene. With a unique, modern flavor blended with a throwback sound, this performer draws his inspiration from artists such as Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, and John Legend.
This Newark, NJ native is claiming his spot in this industry. His old-school yet current flavor has landed him opportunities to work with acts such as Anthony Hamilton, Mint Condition, Carl Thomas, Musiq Soulchild, Jaheim, Dwele, Boyz 2 Men, Mike Epps, Talent, Tamia, India Arie, Naughty by Nature, Wendy Williams, The Temptations, Tank, Kem, Avant, Joe, Brian Mcknight, Frankie Beverly and Maize, Freddie Jackson, Regina Belle, and Patti Labelle to name a few. A'ndre can be seen playing at various venues with his band “The SpiritMakerz".
In addition to singing, Andre's first interest in the arts was acting. He has landed roles in stage plays such as Dream Girls, Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places, After The Walk(Starring Kelly Price), Underneath It All featuring Kierra Sheard and many others.
A'ndre is also the CEO of A-Diamond Entertainment. Under the company, he has stepped into the director's chair as the writer/producer/director/and star of several stage plays including The #1 Urban Stageplay "Man Of The House" which tackles Domestic Abuse where the man is the victim as opposed to the abuser. This play has also featured R&B Diva “Monifah”, “J-Boog” of B2K, and “Willie Taylor” of Day 26. In addition to "Man Of The House", A'ndre has also released two (1) act stage plays entitled "The BreakDown" and "Is This What We Paid For".
These productions tackle the issues of the break down in the home and it's effects on the children and the thoughts of civil rights activists on the state of African-Americans today. Most recently A’ndre has written, directed, and produced his first short film “Attacked From All Angles” which is now an award winning piece after capturing the best short film category at the NYC Kwanzaa Film Festival. This short highlights a congregation that is divided as gun violence at the hands of the police and local gangs affect their community.
ANDRE is truly an authentic, urban talent whose genuine and raw talent is sure to satisfy audiences of different genres. His love for Christ continues to keep him humble and his love for entertainment pushes him to strive to always become better at his craft. His Motto: Going Till I Get It!
