David Haynes is a 19 year old singer, actor, dancer, and author. Having discovered his gift of song at the age of four within the four walls of the church, the Baltimore based artist has come a long way since then. After making his performance debut of the gospel song, I Can Do All Things Through Christ, he has traveled throughout the east coast to share his gift with anyone who hasn’t heard and is willing to listen. Having been recognized in the church, he starred as Little David in the locally renowned play, the Final Flight; a play that portrays the different journeys of believers and non-believers of Christ.
Having been destined for greatness, in the year of 2007, David was featured on Carolyn Jackson’s acclaimed gospel album, Sounding the Alarm. After witnessing what Jackson called “the anointing” of Haynes’ gift, she was compelled to have had then 9 year old David featured on the album. With soaring vocals in adoration of the love of a Savior, Haynes made Glory to Your Name a phenomenon to all who heard and witnessed produced and live performances of the record.
In the year of 2008, Haynes took part in the Maryland State Boychoir, singing in two divisions of the choir—treble choir, concert choir—where they traveled throughout the United States and Canada (Nova Scotia). During Haynes’ three years with the choir, he developed a superior caliber of musicianship and music repertoire.
In the years of 2012 through 2016, David was featured in Baltimore’s renowned high school choir, the Baltimore City College Choir. While under the directorship of Linda R. Hall and Marcus D. Smith, he was groomed with exemplary skills to greater musicianship which led to the outbreak of the artist today. After taking a hiatus to solo performances to study the philosophies to proper vocal production, Haynes made his long-awaited debut with the choir, singing Natalie Cole’s rendition of When I Fall In Love. With his countertenor vocals and
mezzo soprano range, David returned with a rarity.
"A voice vibrant and true."
