Wayne is a native of Philadelphia who started singing in the church at a very young age. It was the church where his vocal ability was cultivated and where his soulful musicality was refined.
He’s performed as a lead vocalist and as part of larger gospel ensembles, touring all over the U.S. and various countries such as Indonesia, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Bratislava, Hungary, Czech Republic, Russia, Austria and Lithuania to name a few. Wayne has also supported gospel greats such as Dorinda Clark Cole, Twinkie Clark, the late Rev. Timothy Wright, Yolanda Adams, Lady Tramaine Hawkins, Rev. John A. Thompson, and others.
He studied classical vocal technique at the High School for Creative and Performing Arts under the late Dr. David King. Wayne has been a featured artist and carried principle roles in various gospel stage-plays.
Most recently, Wayne has served as a lead vocalist in two fantastic production shows, Motor City Live! and Disco Live!, both of which had near year-long residencies at Hard Rock Casino Atlantic City as well as extended dates at MGM Grand National Harbor and other venues in the northeast.
