Dre Ben Frank, 24, whose real name is De’Andre Fagan wants to show his versatility. His latest project is a promotional stint of cover songs called The Cover King. Currently, he’s covered Donell Jones- Where I wanna Be, Usher- Nice and Slow, The Beatles- Don’t Let Me Down, and Nico and Vinz- Am I Wrong which are all available for viewing on YouTube.
Dre Ben Frank who was born in Miami and raised in Monticello, Florida, recently sat down with Roy Kirkland on the Oh Roy Show and shared how people in his life showed him that big dreams were possible. When he was a junior in high school, he found out that he was related to the legendary Billie Holiday. The person that shared this news with him was his father, Tommy Fagan, who was a professional football player that played for the Miami Dolphins, the Greenbay Packers, and the Atlanta Falcons.
“I’ve been around a lot of people that just have a lot of different dreams that people feel are impossible. My grandfather is a professional artist. My uncle is an artist. They do paintings. They do cartoons. They do scratch paintings. These people have talent…If you’re an artist somebody’s told you no before…Just because someone’s told you no doesn’t mean that you necessarily have to stop. That’s your barrier. At the end of the day, I look at my father sometimes and I’m like, it’s amazing that you went to professional football. I’m pretty sure people looked at you when you just started and never imagined that you would go that far. It’s all because of your determination and not procrastinating and wanting to be the best at what you do. That’s my passion. I always want to be the best at whatever I put my hand into. At the end of the day, it’s that brand… and people want to love it. You want to keep them coming into that.”
