David Britt ‘Singin’ For A Reason’ Benefit
Sep 22 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

BENEFIT FOR THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY

Born October 1, 1975, in Charlotte, North Carolina, David Britt is a Country Music Recording Artist and Singer Songwriter. Although he began playing violin at the early age of three, David did not start writing music until he was thirty-five. Up until that point David was a top national junior tennis player, an ACC Tennis Champion at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and briefly, a Professional tennis player on the Men’s Pro Tennis Circuit. After hanging up his racquet, David started in the world of Commercial Real Estate. Several years of stellar success had been under his belt when the market crashed in 2008. Although Charlotte, North Carolina was somewhat insulated, the crash still took a toll on many brokers and developers. David, like many in his field, all of sudden had a fair amount of time on his hands. That’s when he began to write music. It was a life-long dream that found its way back into David’s life. After teaching himself to play the guitar, David booked his first studio session with Producer Jason Scavone, and put together his first album, self-titled, DAVID BRITT, which was released in 2012. Since that time David has released 2 other albums, COUNTRY FLOW, and IT”S ON NOW, along with several other singles. David’s 4th album LOVE SONGS & LULLABIES will be released February 14, 2018. David has written over 2000 songs. Over the years David has made national news due to his philanthropic work in and out of the music world, and does many charitable concerts a year. He is also written and published three books. In October of 2017 David traveled to New York City to perform at Gretchen Carlson’s book launch for her Best Selling book, ‘Be Fierce.’ where he performed his hit tribute song to Gretchen, ‘Be Fierce.’ All proceeds from the song benefit Gretchen’s ‘Gift Of Courage Fund,’ which helps underserved women. David’s mentor, and one of his closest friends, is Joe Bonsall of the Country Music Hall of Fame group, The Oak Ridge Boys. Although David is full time in music, he is still heavily involved in commercial real estate with his company, David Britt Real Estate, LLC, where he is a broker and developer. David has two beautiful children. They reside in Charlotte, NC.
