Dominique Renee / Bio

DOMINIQUE YOUNG, A 27-YEAR-OLD SONGSTRESS, MADE A NAME FOR HERSELF AFTER A MEMORABLE DEBUT ON MTV'S MAKING THE BAND 3 - SEASON 2. AS ONE OF THE FINALISTS ON THE SHOW, SHE IMPRESSED THE WORLD WITH HER HEARTFELT RENDITION OF DEBORAH COX'S "NOBODY SUPPOSED TO BE HERE." HER PERFORMANCES DREW PRAISE FROM DIDDY, ALONG WITH INDUSTRY VETERANS SUCH AS JOHNNY WRIGHT. DESPITE NOT BEING SELECTED TO JOIN DANITY KANE, YOUNG WAS INVITED TO BECOME A MEMBER OF THE BAD BOY FAMILY BUT DECLINED IN LIEU OF ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY WITH INDUSTRY MAINSTAY ANDRE HARRELL: A UNION THAT WOULD PUT DOMINIQUE IN THE STUDIO WITH SOME OF THE INDUSTRY'S MOST SOUGHT-AFTER WRITERS AND PRODUCERS, WHICH INCLUDE NE-YO, EDDIE F., THE PROFESSIONALS, HERB MIDDLETON AND MORE.

UNHAPPY WITH THE DIRECTION OF HER CAREER IN NEW YORK, YOUNG DECIDED TO RETURN TO THE DC METROPOLITAN AREA TO TRY HER HAND ON STAGES ACROSS THE NATION'S CAPITAL, WHILE FINISHING UP HER BACHELOR'S DEGREE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND, COLLEGE PARK. UPON ATTAINING HER DEGREE, YOUNG BECAME A SCHOOL TEACHER, DISCOVERING HER SECOND CALLING—EDUCATION. HER FOCUS HAS SINCE SHIFTED INTO A DUAL GOAL OF CHANGING THE WORLD BY EDUCATING OUR YOUTH AS WELL AS TOUCHING AS MANY SOULS AS POSSIBLE THROUGH HER MUSIC. MS. YOUNG IS CURRENTLY LIVING AND TEACHING IN NEW YORK CITY WHILE PURSUING A MASTERS IN EDUCATION AND CONTINUING TO ASTONISH AUDIENCES THROUGH HER LIVE PERFORMANCES AND YOUTUBE VIDEOS.
