This is Kelontae Gavin’s big weekend. The 17-year old singer rose to fame after a YouTube video of him dynamically singing “I Won’t Complain” in his high school cafeteria went viral and racked up almost 800,000 views. Now, Gavin is managed by entrepreneur Marquis Boone (who also manages No. 1 gospel artists Casey J and Briana Babineaux) and signed to Tyscot Records – the company that put John P. Kee, Deitrick Haddon and VaShawn Mitchell on the musical map.
