Quintavious Johnson is a singer from Franklin, Tennessee. Quintavious's mother Yolanda knew he could sing at the young age of only 11 months. He was in the grocery cart when his mother started to hum a song and he hummed the exact tune back. With Yolanda amazed, this led to Quintavious joining his church Lime Stone Baptist Choir at the young age of Five.
Quintavious is currently honing his musical talents by taking vocal lessons. His favorite singers that inspire him are Whitney Houston, Shirley Caesars, Jennifer Hudson, Donny McClurkin, Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, and more.
