ENCORE! Derick with his Ukulele, LA Lakers vs Cleveland Cavaliers, at Staples Center!

A wise man always told me, “If you believe, deep down inside…you can do anything, if you make up your mind.”

It’s been 22 years since I’ve started playing the ukulele and as I reflect, this journey has been incredibly amazing…a lot of hard work, faith, never giving up and dreaming big dreams! I am extremely honored to announce…Thursday, March 10th, 2016, will mark another milestone as I will do an encore National Anthem ukulele performance for the historic Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center! It’ll definitely be a special evening to know that I’ll be performing for several of the top NBA players of all-time…LA Laker’s Kobe Bryant and Cleveland Cavalier’s LeBron James! I am so excited…THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH! Dreams do come true…you just have to believe!
