DeAndre’s New Single, Her Crazy, Now Available On iTunes.


I don’t know if I am more excited over the fact that DeAndre Brackensick has a new single out or that he has now shortened his name to DeAndre? I was hoping that the latter would have happened while he was still on American Idol – it’s not like there are any more DeAndres out […]
