DaOne Hillside: Featured Musician for Holiday Arts Tour 2010

DaOne is a talented local singer-songwriter, and NCLAC is pleased to have him on the Tour for the first time this year. About DaOne DaOne Hillside (a.k.a. Duane Harris) is a humble, hardworking father with four beautiful children--Honor, Zyon, Jaylin and Lyric. DaOne has a passion for music that began years ago in church. Somewhere along the way, others began to recognize his talent, and he started performing at events: weddings, parties etc. He embraced this encouragement, honing his singing skills and participating in a variety of talent competitions.

DaOne is now a dynamic artist whose talents range from smooth R & B covers, to soulful, heartfelt originals, to hardcore, energetic rap.
