“Music is the universal language that all mankind share.”
It's the D.W.H.I.T to the top!
R&B/Southern Soul recording artist was born Duane Gerard Whitley, a native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana and raised in the 80s under the strict teachings of the Jehovah's Witness faith. Never allowed to celebrate any holidays such as Christmas, Easter or even his birthday, D-Whit had to face difficult hurdles from the beginning starting in elementary school where he was bullied because he was different than the other kids. Even though he led a sheltered life, only being allowed to associate with other kids of the same religion, D-Whit always knew that he would someday make his impression on the show business scene. In the early 90s D-Whit relocated to New York City and quickly gained respect as a choreographer and touring with platinum artists such as Joe, Britney Spears, Destiny's Child and Usher. His smooth dance moves were featured in many artists performances on television and concert stages internationally. He has also sung background vocals for artists Joe and Kevon Edmonds (Babyface's brother) on national tv shows. D-Whit is also the writer, director and choreographer for one of the first successful off broadway hip hop musicals called "Ghetto Chronicles" which received an Audelco Award nomination for "best new musical" in 2006. He is now concentrating on his solo efforts as a major r&b/Soul recording artist and worldwide entertainer.
