Watch A Young King's Dream Come True

Hello! My name is Marcel Dutch & meet De'von Cole, De'von is my talented 10yr old cousin with ADHD from Suitland, MD., who has a passion for music. He plays the keyboard but his favorite instrument to play is the drums. He plays all different types of music from gospel to R&B or whatever he hears on the radio or TV. Every evening at our grandparents house he would build himself a drum set using household items such as the front cover from a fan and a lid from a pot as symbols, a toddlers chair as a snare and a container for a floor tom. A lot of people think if a person has a certain diagnosis, it will hinder them from their dreams or stop their talent all together. But De'Von shows that you can overcome the stereotypes.

On July 9th, 2015 I recorded De'von like I normally do when I visit my grandparents house and when he's there. I recorded him playing to "Uptown Funk" by Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars & "Trap Queen" By Fetty Wap on a drum set he completely made up himself with things around the house. If that isn't creativity I don't know what is! I also put the video on my Twitter and the feedback he has gotten from that is truly amazing. So I decided to go ahead and make a gofundme account to get Devon a drum set he really deserves. And within a day i raised $820 to get his drum set!

July 19th, 2015 was the day i surprised De'Von with his drum set and the look on his face was priceless! De'von inspired a lot of people around the country with his imagination and creativity. So i hope you enjoy this video!
