16 Year Old YouTube Singing Sensation Kelontae Gavin Signed to Marquis Boone Music Label

Emerging music executive Marquis Boone, founder and president of Atlanta-based entertainment company Marquis Boone Enterprises, LLC (MBE) has discovered and signed 16-year old YouTube singing sensation Kelontae Gavin to an exclusive recording contract. Boone will re-release the title track single “Higher” from Kelontae Gavin’s 2014 digitally only EP of the same name later this year.

Kelontae Gavin has a growing platform of supporters thanks in part to a You Tube video clip of the Ridgeville, South Carolina native singing “I Won’t Complain”. 

One day a Facebook link was sent to Boone of a young man [Kelontae Gavin] singing one of his favorite songs in his school cafeteria and the tone and vocal ability of this young man singing captured Boone and he just knew instantly that he wanted to work with him. That's when the one year process started of MBE acquiring him.

"It was a long process getting Kelontae to become part of MBE because of his age but after many emails, phone calls and conversations with his parents we are thrilled and ecstatic to be trusted with such an awesome talent and we at MBE are ready to position him to be a new breakout artist," says Boone.

Boone is the force behind the explosive success of 2015 Two-time Dove Award nominated and four-time 2016 Stellar Award nominated breakout artist Casey J who spawned two Billboard Top 5 radio hits “Fill Me Up,” which spent 14 weeks at #1 on Billboard Magazine's Gospel Airplay chart and eight weeks at #1 on its Hot Gospel Songs hybrid chart in 2015.
