"I always accessorize," says Drew Vision, when asked about his personal style. The New York-native, indie R&B-soul singer then proceeds to pull out three golden rings and two earrings from Topman out of his pocket. While adding the accessories to his casual ensemble of a Reason sweater hoodie, Zara jeans, and worn-in brown leather Aldo boots, the singer explains that the outfit was actually rushed last minute. As an emerging triple threat of singing, modeling, and acting -- even dancing, if you count his appearance as a two-stepping groomsman in Beyoncé's "Best Thing I Never Had" video -- Drew Vision has spent many busy years dabbling in all those worlds, doing whatever he can to get more exposure.
It all started at the age of five when Vision's family wanted him to sing center stage at their church. That led to appearances in high school musicals and landed him a vocal scholarship at Five Towns College in Dix Hills, Long Island. Eventually, Vision decided to "hit the ground running" and perform gigs in pursuit of a solo career. To support himself, he became a wedding singer and smartly learning how to sing in Hebrew for Bar-Mitzvahs and in Spanish for Quinceañeras. The entertainer also modeled for the likes of Coach (who gifted him his favorite jacket, their MA-1 in surplus nylon) and appeared in international ads for Lays and Pepsi.
