NEW YORK, NY (Mass Appeal) Tomorrow night, the six finalists on America’s got talent will vie to win one million dollars and a headline show in Las Vegas! Two of those finalists Quintavious Johnson, and singer Emily West, spoke with us about their feelings heading into the finals.
About Quintavious Johnson
Twelve-year-old Quintavious Johnson starting singing in his church in Franklin, Tennessee at age three, and joined the youth choir at age five. He has sung the National Anthem for the Franklin Cowboys, Franklin Baseball Club and Nashville Sounds. In 2012, he won Demi Lobo’s “Most Talented Under 12” competition in Chicago. In 2013, he was a guest of singer Jimmy Wayne and performed at the Grand Ole Opry. Quintavious enjoys singing at local churches, meetings and sporting events, and he looks forward to singing in front of the audience at Radio City Music Hall.
About Emily West
Singer-songwriter Emily West, from Waterloo, Iowa, moved to Nashville at age 18 and had some success as a country music artist. But a few months ago, she wanted a clean slate, so she sold her car, packed her bags for New York City and never looked back. Emily’s dream is to have a one-woman show that tells stories through her songs. Her music inspirations include Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Rufus Wainwright and Antony and the Johnsons. Emily wears her heart on her sleeve and looks forward to sharing her music with America.
