Daren started singing when he was three years old.He inherited his love for music from his grandma who is a good singer. When he was a kid, his voice was mataas that he do songs by Celine Dion and Whitney Houston.
It was at Burnett where Daren honed his singing-acting skills in campus plays (ELF: The Musical, The Day Before Christmas, West Side Story, Hairspray, The Secret Garden, etc.). He has also done TV and films, one of them Darc which is now streaming on Netflix.
