In Orange County, Andre Roberson grew up in a family business caring for the mentally-challenged. A deeply spiritual, God-fearing man, Andre believes he was blessed to grow up in this environment. Andre cheerfully explains, “It gave me the unique opportunity to understand all kinds of people. Yes, at times the work is hard, very hard, but through it I have discovered a greater love, acceptance, and appreciation for all people, especially those considered “outcasts” by the broader society.
Additionally, this type of work and learning to communicate with our clients through the years has shown me how to read people without words in order to give them what they need and want; and I’ve learned that genuine sincerity, love and understanding is what every single one of us need to give and receive.”
Andre is a musician, actor, and film/TV producer who first entered the entertainment industry as a recording artist on his own independent label, Beat Lounge Record. An award-winning R&B/Hip-Hop artist, Andre has performed at iconic venues all over the country including Whiskey-A-Go-Go, The Troubadour, the Key Club, and the House of Blues in various locales; he has headlined events in Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay, Caesar’s Palace, Planet Hollywood, Luxor, and the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. As an actor, Andre has been featured in movies (Notorious, Dangerous Minds, Powerplay, and Sunset Strip) and in recurring and guest starring roles in TV shows such as Days of Our Lives, The District, and Angel.
