[David Le Prince Bio written by Father/Manager Pat Luyeye]



David Luyeye (AKA David Le Prince) was born September 21, 2000 in Dallas, Texas.
His mother, Michaella Bonose Luyeye, is from Paris, France, while his father Pat Luyeye, better known as “The Genius,” is of African descent from the Democratic Republic of Congo. At age 3, David moved to Paris with his family, where he resided for 6 years, developing a strong international background. It was in Paris that he learned French. By age 6, David was already teaching himself to sing by watching and listening to Michael Jackson, Usher, Chris Brown, and numerous other singers on You Tube. How could such an amazing talent emerge with no formal training? This could only happen because David was truly a natural. In 2010, when David was 9 years old, his family moved back to Oklahoma City, OK. His dream was to become like Michael Jackson, so he asked his father for help. His father said, “I want you to be a man after your own. Nevertheless, you can model after Michael Jackson and other music icons.” Pat Luyeye gave David his first laptop and showed him how to use media contents like YouTube, VIMEO, and MySpace, so he could learn more about melodies, harmonies, style, and dance. In spring of 2010, the American Mall Model Talent Search was held in Oklahoma City and audiences enjoyed David’s Michael Jackson style footwork. He was signed as a Young Model, but soon after the family relocated to Dallas, Texas.


In June 2010, David Le Prince-along with his brother “Tim Fresh” in the background, recorded and released his debut demo album “I Need A Friend.”  It’s no surprise that David’s debut album created a strong buzz in Dallas, Texas, in his local community, and among friends and family. “Dance, Dance,” “Rock, Rock,” and “Broken Dream” were recorded on his father’s underground record label “LUYEMPIRE”. These songs were written by Bishop Young Don (Songwriter for Jay Holliday, Genuwine) and co-written by Pat Luyeye “The Genius.” David Le Prince’s sound is broadly inspired by the early Michael Jackson years, Usher, Chris Brown and B2K. But it is described as unique, classic R&B with international French flavor-thanks to David’s time spent in Paris, France. With help from Hip-Hop choreographer Fenton Fulgham, founder of The Revelation School of Dance in Dallas, Texas, David Le Prince’s goal is to be one of the youngest R&B performers/singers of our time.


In the summer of 2012, David’s father (whom is also his manager) began to develop David Le Prince as a new crossover artist, taking him to audio engineer and Grammy winning producer, Jay Lacy teamed with Multi-platinum songwriter and recording artist, Tami LaTrell in Houston, Texas. Together, they produced David’s latest single, “Where You At”. 2013 has proven to be a busy year for David starting with the February release of his video “Where you at” on You Tube which received over 100,000 views to date. The release of his follow up single “Girlfriend” received radio play in Connecticut, California, North Carolina, Illinois, Florida & Iowa. In March 2013 David was featured on FlossMagazine.com and Marketwire.com. In June 2013, David opened up for Jay Cole, Ace Hood & Juvenile, on the Dub Tour in Dallas and performed in several other venues in Dallas and NYC. David Le Prince is not just a 13 year old kid that sings in English & French. He is also a dancer, he studies piano, was the MVP point guard on his basketball summer games team in Irving, Texas, won 1st place in 50 meter dash in 5th grade, is an avid video gamer, draws, and paints.  In the future, David plans to learn to play other instruments, dive into the acting world and publish children’s cartoon books. He hopes to work with artists such as Willow Smith, Astro, B2K, Mindless Behavior, Justin Bieber and Usher. And while many call him “Baby Usher,” he prefers to be called David Le Prince. Just think, he will only get better and as he grows and so will his fan base.

Editor’s Notes:

About MENT 2B: @Ment2BMusic

The R&B trio from Pine Bluff, Arkansas, comprised of Brannon, J-Mon, and Danny Love.  Brothers Brannon and Jermon Smith have been singing as a group with long-time childhood friend, Danny Sims since grade school. Equally talented and all capable of singing lead, the powerhouse, known as Ment 2B, commands the stage, with raw, soulful harmonization. Their smooth, charismatic dance moves in unison, giving flashbacks to days long before the cliché of “Boy Bands”, when choreography went hand in hand with doo wop. Reminiscent of those doo-wop days, Ment 2B blends styles of other genres like pop, rap, country, hip hop, and rock. “Heart Made of Stone” is the group’s newest single. The band of brothers showed fans they could switch things up when they moved to Texas and recorded their single, “Lock Me Up,” featuring platinum recording artist and rapper, Dorrough. The 3 time New York Apollo winners have opened for major artists like the Isley Brothers, Ne-yo, Nelly, and the late Gerald Levert. Ment 2B have proven that they can hold their own.
