Berklee Groove 

Throughout the show, entitled Made for This, DREION stunned a full audience with his highly coordinated dance moves, virtuosic vocal performance, and his unparalleled confidence and charisma. The energy in his showmanship was a contagion comparable to the likes of James Brown, Prince, and Michael Jackson, whom he cites as his most significant artistic influences.

Berklee Songwriting Department

“DREION has been a standout writer, performer, and producer in all of my classes and there's no doubt in my mind, if he keeps the fantastic focus and motivation he's already demonstrated, he will be a major success story in the music business."

”There is nothing that DREION can't do: a fantastic singer, songwriter, and musician with a promising career ahead of him. His songs are incredibly graceful and soulful works of art.


Berklee College of Music

A few seconds into the video of DREION's performance live from Symphony Park in Boston, you'll understand why audience member and Berklee staffer Abria Smith took out her phone and started filming. DREION's energy as he and his band sizzled through a James Brown tune took command of not just the audience present for the performance, but now of viewers all over the world. 


Principal Thomas Lee at Omaha Northwest High Magnet School

“DREION is very talented, very mature and truly knows how to impact his community and our society. He is a difference maker and true change agent. I am very proud of DREION and all of our students who have gone on to college and have excelled.”


“ A lively video of musician DREION's band performing James Brown's "Get On Up" was posted on Facebook after a show held at Symphony Park this summer. That video has now garnered over 1.3 million views. It caught our attention because of the energy and joy of his performance. So, we invited him in to talk about music and to perform a new song."




College Possible

College Possible helped DREION focus on academics and find financial resources. He said this was critical in his motivation to succeed.
