He’s about to embark on another.
Back in 2010, the Baltimore native was named as one of the Top 20 singers from among 15,000 aspiring contestants on BET’s singing show Sunday’s Best.
He didn’t win; that honor went to Le’Andria Johnson. But seven years later, Davon is still singing Christian music, recently completed his first tour of Italy and Switzerland and is about to compete on an even larger platform, The Voice Season 13.
According to his profile on CD Baby, Davon began singing at age 3 at Beth-El Temple Church of Christ in Baltimore; his father was a deacon.
By age 16, he began singing background vocals for mainstream and gospel artists and studied jazz and classical music as well.
Artists he worked with included Kim Burrell, Kirk Franklin, Mary Mary and Ricky Dillard.
Without being specific in that bio, Davon says he’s also battled demons during his singing career, but came through it with the help of God.
His profile is on CD Baby because he released a solo debut single in 2016 called “I Need You.” He’s also a featured vocalist on a song called “Can’t Tell It” by A. Jermaine and Ascension.
Both are gospel releases, but Davon says his music has many influences.
“My music is a combination of everything from jazz to gospel, hip-hop to classical,” he wrote upon the release of that debut single. “Every song is created to uplift, inspire, and spread the message of love. My mission is to heal the world with music and give hope to people — all people.”
Here are Davon’s social media links followed by a couple of samples of his music.
The Voice has done it again, rounding up an impressive array of talent for Season 13. Keep checking back for more profiles of the contestants we’ll meet when the blind auditions begin Sept. 25 on NBC.
