DC was born in Recife, Brazil as "Ricardo Corriea De Lima." His mother was only 14 years old when she gave birth to the him, and after struggling through the early years of DC's childhood, she made the difficult decision of putting her son up for adoption with hopes and prayers of a better life for him. Her prayers would soon be answered by a young couple from Washington, DC who adopted the eager five-year-old. His new adoptive parents gave him the name "David Ricardo Lee Chaney" and raised him with morals and values his mother would be more than proud of. The unknown whereabouts of his birthmother continue to remind him of the life and opportunity he has been given to do what he was born to do.

“My voice has been touched by an angel, and I know that she can hear me every time I sing. I pray every chance I get that we will one day be reunited.”

Soon after finding his voice as a teen, DC took every opportunity he could to display his talent.

After high school, he was accepted to the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA on a four-year scholarship.
