Meet the contestants: John Toussaint

Sixteen-year-old John credits his older sisters for his love of music and the arts.

“When I was younger they would always introduce me to new and old bands, artists, etc.,” he said. “In middle school, however, I performed in multiple school productions which made me love not just pop music and top charts, but theatrical music as well.”

For John, winning the competition would mean that he could share his love of music while helping others who need it the most.

“It makes me feel grateful that I’m able to use my voice to help focus on giving kids in need voices,” he said. “Kids are the ones whose voices should be heard the clearest because they are the future.”
