  19. I would say it is unbelievable to see how successful Daun has become with his singing/songwriting but I knew one day he would become a star for the entire world to see. What was truly unbelievable was the voice he had as an elementary schooler. I remember growing up with Daun and he was always the star of every production. Everyone loved to hear him sing. I feel so honored to say that I performed on the same stage as him many times, elementary and middle school. Daun you are truly blessed with your talent and throughout your life you have brought much joy into people’s lives with your special gift. Keep up the hard work! Go big for us in the MP!

  35. Daun,
    Keep up the work. You have a ton of talent & you need to use it. Forget all the other stuff & keep your eye on what it is that you want. It’s within your grasp but it’s up to you to do the work. Everything else will work itself out. Be patient..success comes to those who are willing to do the work. Have John Call me or M. Starr if you need us.
    Take care & I hope to see you at the top.
