Kevin Colis was a singer and guitarist act from Season 5 of America's Got Talent. He was eliminated in the Vegas Round, but he returned in Season 6 as a YouTube Act. He was eliminated again in the Semifinals.
Kevin Colis has always dreamed of making an impact in music. His desire to be a singer began at age 12 when he was cast as the lead role in his elementary school’s sixth grade musical. From that moment on, Kevin set his sights on becoming a professional singer. He received his bachelors in music from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, and two degree certificates from the Musicians Institute in Hollywood. After many missed opportunities in Los Angeles, Kevin refocused his efforts and moved to New Braunfels, Texas, where he opened a Live Music and Dance venue for teenagers.
Through America’s Got Talent, Kevin has rekindled his dream to become a singer and has the opportunity to show his audiences that it’s never too late to pursue your passion. 1
