“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.
