Teen wins BET Gospel Music Competition
Out of more than 15,000 other entrants in the online music competition contest, a 2015 Escambia High graduate, 19 year old DeWayne Crocker Jr., beat out everyone in the contest. He uploaded his video on the very last day after in Memphis recording his new single, ‘I Don’t Know,’ and decided to go ahead and submit it after all. Crocker’s cut version of “Precious Lord,” gained him one of 10 spots to New York City for the “Race to the Stage” preliminary competition. The finalists were selected based on vocal ability, stage presence, creativity, and gospel insight.
