NDmakesMusic – gifted and driven

Written by Shirlene Brown | February 17, 2014 | Leave a Comment

From RnB to pop, rock to reggae, ND skillfully blends these elements to create a new sound unmatched by other artists. This shooting star took the stage by storm at an early age and grew up to become the note spinning, piano-playing entertainer that many would go above and beyond to experience LIVE in-the-flesh.
