My name is Frank Heyden, 29 years old singer and guitarist from Berlin Germany. I started singing very early at the age of 6 years, when I was about to go to school, my mother droped me at the choir in our small town where I was born and there I started my "career". In school time I was often forced to sing at the whole school, what was really strange for me, cause I didn't thought that i'm that much good, like almost every singer. We all have fears we have to deal with and my fear was that the people could laugh when taking the stage.
At the age of 20 I moved to Berlin where I started a Band at the age of 25. This project was not really a ideal one because I made to much deals with myself and I was 4 years before learning to play the guitar. We recorded and published 3 songs at my favorite music studio, Plainsong Tonstudio. After discussing this with the band members, I was offered a job with my father in Saudi Arabia, so I went and that’s where my career really started. I've had a lot of time to think about what I wanted to do and I wrote my first album here. This led me to become a member of the World Championships of Performing Arts in 2014/2015. That was a big thing for me because I could challenge myself to compete against other singers from all over the world. That was the time I realized, that I have a very good voice and that also was a time where I met so many new people, several who became friends for life.
After consulting my coach Sam Besmer, I decided to become National Co-Director for the United Arabian Emirates, which makes sense, because i'm live just 2 flight hours away, so now this new journey begins...!
