Indie Soul Spotlight: Tevin L. Johnson

Tevin L. Johnson was born in Florence, South Carolina and raised in the very small town of Darlington, South Carolina. Born to the beautiful Eunice Johnson and handsome Frederick Charles on September 16th, 1992. For as long as he can remember, “I’ve always had a passion for the arts. I started singing at 2 years old and acting at 6 years old. Growing up I had always dreamed of being in the entertainment industry. I remember telling my mother that I wanted to buy her a “big screen TV” and she still tells that story to this day. I also remember putting on shows for my family anytime they came to our house to visit. They would always tip me for my stellar performances. As a child, I couldn’t have asked for a better support system.

Tevin L. Johnson takes pride in everything that he does. Adds Tevin, “I am glad that God blessed me with a gift to touch others through music and acting. I am fortunate that God allowed me to use high school as a platform to further display my talents. When I was in high school, I was crowned Mr. DHS and I was also elected most school spirited “go Falcons!” I truly enjoyed high school because I was able to be my true self. I graduated from Darlington High in 2011 but, my opportunities did not stop there”.

After graduation, he moved to Upper Marlboro MD to attended Bowie State University. Tevin was at Bowie student for one year and loved every moment of it. “Throughout my year at Bowie I was in several productions within my theatre department. In 2012, I auditioned for American Idol (Season 11) and I received my GOLDEN TICKET to Hollywood. This was one of my most proud moments. Although I did not make the top 24 however, out of 367 contestants, I was recognized as part of the Top 100 group of contestants. Being a part of American Idol was an experience that I will never forget” states Johnson.

After returning home from Hollywood, he felt a deep desire to further his singing career. Johnson says, “I needed my dreams to become my reality, so I moved to Atlanta, GA to continue to build my foundation. I’ve been in Atlanta for 4 years and throughout my time here I have been blessed with the opportunity to be a part of great productions and work with awesome people. I have accomplished quite a bit, however, my journey to success is far from over. I am on my way to the top from here and I plan to reach unimaginable heights. I know that with the love and support of my family, friends, and fans I will reach my goals. And as I like to say ‘At first they will ask why you’re doing it?; Later they’ll ask how did you do it?’ You can follow Tevin Jonson on these following outlets:
