[From Wikipedia] At 16, Danny Fernandes won two consecutive Rising Star awards in the annual CNE dance contest held at Cherrytree Public School located in Brampton, Ontario, near Toronto. He became the youngest member of the Toronto Raptors’ famed Dance Pak and began to appear regularly as a backup dancer in music videos.
After graduating from Cherrytree Public School, Danny started playing showcases at clubs in Europe (Germany, Switzerland, and Austria), Fernandes signed with the Canadian CP Records (Capital Prophet Records) and released his debut album Intro. Danny went out on tour across Canada as the opening act for Akon and Sean Kingston.
On October 14, 2008, CP Records released “Curious”, featuring Juelz Santana, the first of four singles from Intro. “Curious” was followed by “Private Dancer”, featuring Belly; “Never Again”; and “Fantasy”, the most successful of the four, peaking at #25 on the Canadian Hot 100 and spending 14 weeks on Canadian radio.
Fernandes was also a judge on the TV show Karaoke Star Jr. alongside Tara Oram.
Fernandes’s second album, AutomaticLUV, was released by CP Records on November 2, 2010, with the first single called “Automatic” featuring Belly. The second single off the album was called “Take Me Away” and the third “Hit Me Up” which once again featured Belly and Josh Ramsay from the Canadian band Marianas Trench (band). The single reached #22 in the Billboard Canadian Hot 100 charts and the video single reached #1 on the MuchMusic Countdown.
