Season 13 Voice contestant Davon Fleming served as grand marshal of the MLK Parade in Baltimore on Monday.

Davon Fleming said he appreciated being able to spread news about good things going on in Baltimore during his time on The Voice.

“There are some positive people trying to make a change in this community,” he said during his Voice exit interview.

Now, he’ll be one of those people.

The Baltimore Sun is reporting that Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh has approved a one-year consulting contract with Davon.

He’ll be paid up to $65,000 to “develop the operation of a program for city youth that focus on the performing arts and community enrichment.”

He also served as grand marshal of Monday’s Martin Luther King Jr. Parade.

Tweeted Davon: “I had such an amazing time today at the #MlkBmoreParade — what a historic day & I got to be apart of it!! @MayorPugh50 thank you! DREAM BIG.”

Davon’s received a warm welcome from Baltimore officials. Since returning home, he’s also been presented with a key to the city and performed the national anthem at a Baltimore Ravens game.

On The Voice, Davon, 25 when he auditioned, turned four chairs with his blind audition performance of “Me and Mrs. Jones.” He topped the iTunes R&B singles chart three times en route to a Top 8 finish on the show.
