Daniel De Bourg
Born in England, Daniel De Bourg is an English model, actor, dancer, singer and songwriter. Since a very young age, he was heavily influenced by Michael Jackson’s videos, and he took up dancing when he was but 4. Although a dance enthusiast, he was also fronting bands as a teenager. Bourg immersed himself into music when a friend heard him and suggested that he could try singing.
Legendary artists like Stevie Wonder and Prince influenced him. He only focussed on his singing career when a knee injury made him take some time off dancing. He began to write songs and soon recorded demos of his singing, grabbing the interest of DreamWorks scout Robbie Robertson. This 2002 high-production album “Tell the World”, released the single “I Need an Angel” which reached number 30 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart.
