Dave Wheaton

I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as quick as I could. I'm originally from Battle Creek, Michigan (home of Tony the Tiger). I've got two kids who take up most of my time out of the office, but when I get "me time", I'm either taking in some live music or a sporting event. Since relocating, I also fell in love with the Texas music scene. I've been lucky enough to be nominated for DJ of the Year 4 straight years by the Academy of Texas Music, and was the 2009 recipient of the Academy's Palmwood Award. I'm a huge sports fan, and my loyalties are with the Michigan Wolverines, Chicago White Sox and (sorry) the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Mom and Daughter’s Lip Sync of ‘Frozen’ Song Will Brighten Your Day

I admit, I've been caught singing the songs, quoting, and yes, dancing the dances from the animated movies my kids watch over and over. But I don't think I could ever hold a candle to this mother-daughter team's duet lip syncing 'Love Is An Open Door' from 'Frozen'.
