Dana Vaughns is a budding pop singer, dancer, and a social media influencer, who, by virtue of his painstakingly nurtured credibility in the web-based entertainment platforms, has amassed a huge fan following.

Dana displayed an early affinity for the performing arts and honed his raw skills in dancing and singing by taking lessons right from his childhood. He was still not in his teens when his family took the momentous decision of relocating to the entertainment industry capital of the US—Los Angeles—so that he got optimum opportunities for excelling in his chosen vocations. His professional career took off in 2009, and he earned nationwide fame and recognition as a founding member of ‘IM5’, a boy band set up towards the end of 2010.
