Gavin made his national television debut performing the song on BET’s inspirational show Joyful Noise last year hosted by Two-Time GRAMMY winner Tye Tribbett. The 18-year-old rising Gospel star and MBE/Tyscot Records recording artist who’s been recognized by The New York Times Newspaper as “a live-wire prodigy” has graduated last week from Summerville High in Summerville, South Carolina and will relocate to Atlanta, GA this summer.

“Many are called, but few are effective. I don’t just want to be successful, but I want to be effectful,” states, Kelontae Gavin. Kelontae is excited about his future plans which includes, pursuing a degree in Divinity and Theology and will serve as minister of music at Atlanta’s Ark of Salvation Church, under the leadership of Pastor Nathaniel Bronner.

In addition, Kelontae is in the post-production process and plans to release his debut live project, THE HIGHER EXPERIENCE (Marquis Boone Enterprises/Tyscot Records) this fall produced by Marquis Boone (Casey J, Bri) and TedyP (Bri, Micah Stampley) and features a special guest appearance from BET’S Sunday Best Season 7 winner Geoffrey Golden.
