Adrián Rene Ramírez Rodríguez, stage name (Dian Rene), is a singer, composer, actor, musician, and model born in the Banes municipality, Holguín province in Cuba. From an early age he participated in amateur festivals, reaching national level in the children's song festival "Singing to the Sun" 2005, where he won an interpretation prize, UNICEF prize, and the solidarity prize granted by the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the People and the song was nominated by the Cubadisco 2009. At the end of high school he entered the music conservatory "José María Ochoa" in the province of Holguín thus beginning his musical studies at the intermediate level in the Teaching Artistic Unit of the Lyric Theater "Rodrigo Prats" in the specialty of lyrical singing and opera. During this period he participated in several works within the company and as a soloist in concerts, performing in several provinces of the country, as well as in recitals and show "Candilejas por siempre". In 2009, he graduated from this level presenting a varied program and obtaining the highest rating. He started his studies at the top level in this same year at the Higher Institute of Art, where he obtained very good results at the vocal and interpretation levels, obtaining the City Prize the best male performance in theater in 2012, awarded by the city on the occasion of the XXX Day of the Holguin Culture. In the province of Holguin and in Havana, he toured around the country with great acceptance of the people.
In late 2016, Dian risked it all and left behind his life in Cuba to pursue his dreams as a singer in the United States. The 28-year-old endured a 3,000-mile journey with his older sister, across nine South and Central American countries that included the brutal jungle, untrustworthy guides, robbers and prison. He later attended James Madison University in the specialty of music in Harrisonburg, Virginia where he continued to perform as an opera singer. But even then, life was still a struggle for Dian. His dream of becoming a well known U.S. singer had been placed on hold as he had to work two jobs as a cook and also a maintenance man cleaning buildings just to make ends meet. In 2018, Christina Woodward, talent scout and founder of Southwest Florida's music company Open Flamez Music Group, LLC discovered Dian Rene and immediately knew not only is he a humble individual with a touching story that needs to be shared with the world, but nothing less than a star with major potential to reach Billboard charts. She brought his talent to the attention of several major industry professionals as well as the introduction to partner and talent manager Jose Martinez, who wasted no time in the signing of Dian after seeing he was the real deal. "This guy is going to be big. Alongside of Ozuna, Daddy Yankee, Romeo Santos, etc, says Jose Martinez. The industry better be ready. He is definitely a star in the making and we're going to do all it takes to get him there!"
Dian was flown to Los Angeles in June of 2018 to join the FOX TV show "THE FOUR: Battle For Stardom" Season 2 Episode 4, where he auditioned for judges DJ KHALED, P-DIDDY, and MEGHAN TRAINOR. In his video introduction, Dian shared his story about his arrival from Cuba to pursue his dream in becoming a crossover Latin/Pop entertainer. After performing with "HERO" by Enrique Iglesias, he impressed the judges and crowd, landing the opportunity to battle singer James Graham for a chance to steal his chair and fight for a record deal with Republic Records. His second performance against James really spiced things up and captured the attention of many viewers worldwide. He received great compliments and positive feedback from the judges after performing "FLOR PALIDA" by Marc Anthony. He even threw in a private salsa dance lesson for P-DIDDY and host FERGIE (former member of Black-Eyed Peas). Although Dian didn't win the battle, many felt it wasn't the right platform for his latin talent to shine and social media began to explode with comments. Since his appearance on the show, his fan base has increased by the thousands and he now resides in Miami, Florida. Dian is now working with well known Latin Grammy Award winning and nominated producers and engineers. He's due to release his first ever reggaeton single called "AYUDAME" in October and has officially begun the process of pursuing his dreams as an up and coming star in the United States.
