About Desmond Dennis

And now, the smooth sounds of Desmond Dennis. We say sounds—plural—because this wickedly talented R&B singer croons solo, then clones himself for backup harmonies, and often beatboxes his own percussion. While Desmond’s YouTube channel features videos of him singing popular covers, his come with a twist, often performing a medley of hits or mashing-up two hits into one incredible track. He further shows off his talents by posting original songs accompanied by music videos he directed. He’s hard at work on his forthcoming album Options, but 55K+ fans who can’t wait follow his @desmondmdennis Instagram, where he always gives them a taste of his sweet soul singing.
