Quentin Davis

Quentin Davis class of 2006

Yes it's true....Quentin Davis, Class of 2006 had the opportunity to sing at the famous Apollo Theater in New York City on June 30, 2010.  Long before there was an America's Got Talent or an American Idol, the Apollo Theater gave young vocalists the opportunity to showcase their talent.  The judges and audiences are still quick to let the performers know where they stand before they are chosen as finalists.  Quentin said the experience "made me bring my "A" game" and it paid off.  Quentin took second place on Amateur Night and you can see a snippet of his performance at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wEy66BJpLKc.  He eventually went back to the Apollo to try his luck again but did not place.   Quentin also tried out on the network competition X Factor and placed 250 out of 7000 contestants.   All of these opportunities opened a  lot of doors for him, including meeting his manager.  He booked Quentin at B.B. King's Blues Club in Manhattan where he sang back-up for the band Love Assassins.  

While Quentin was waiting for his big break at home in Somerset NJ, he made the decision to serve his country.  He enlisted in the U.S. Marines Corps and is scheduled to go to boot camp on Paris Island on November 11th.  

His journey since graduation has taken Quentin several places including enrollment at the Institute of Audio Research in New York City to selling Yankee souvenirs outside the stadium.  His message to alumni is "don't give up."  Quentin said that he is already thinking about trying out again for X Factor.

We wish you the best of luck with your singing career, Quentin and Godspeed as your enter the Marine Corps.
