The 23-year-old singing and dancing phenomenon cut her teeth in the business when she directed a
music video for her late mentor, Prince. She enhanced her buzz with back-to-back jams “Play” (featuring
Kap G) and “Lurkin’”, and is here to continue her mission of making music that both sounds and feels
good with “Lil Bebe”.

The South Florida native had music in her blood, singing from a young age. As an early teen, DaniLeigh
recorded YouTube covers of songs like Musiq Soulchild’s “So Beautiful,” though she wasn’t quite ready
for the big time. It wasn’t until a few years later when she moved to Los Angeles at 16 that DaniLeigh
began harnessing her craft. In LA she found her footing in the music industry, starting with dancing. “I
was dancing in music videos, commercials, you name it,” she recalls. “From there, I met a lot of
producers onset and just networked.” Singing became the secret weapon, as DaniLeigh would reveal her
chops and be invited to studios for recording sessions. However, a life-changing encounter with the
legendary Prince would be the real catalyst.

After learning of DaniLeigh’s talents as a dancer (through a one-minute video clip), the Purple One
reached out to have her direct his video for “Breakfast Can Wait” at just 18 years old. Prince ultimately
took DaniLeigh under his wing, mentoring her budding singing career. His untimely death in 2016 left a
void in DaniLeigh’s life, though his presence is still felt as DaniLeigh’s star is only getting brighter.
