Telvin Lewis isn’t the only person in his family who likes music. He comes from a musical family, every Sunday after church, they’d gather around the piano and sing. When Telvin was 7 years old he discovered his talents by singing Lean On Me in the bathroom. That Sunday he got a solo in church and pursued music ever since. Growing up, Telvin did theater and musical choir. Now Telvin Lewis has been making music for six years and writing songs since the sixth grade. Currently, Telvin works by himself but he is manifesting the perfect team. “It’s a one-man show right now”. Telvin was offered a record deal but it just wasn’t a right fit for his art. When Telvin Lewis decided to pursue his musical career he sat down and wrote down a list of goals to achieve by a set date. “When you have a dream you will do whatever it takes to make it happen”. It seems that list has been working out because Telvin has had a rollercoaster of a musical career.
For Telvin Lewis there has been one area in particular that he has found continued success. Broadcast television and its numerous singing competition shows have allowed Telvin to rocket himself to stardom. Telvin was a contestant on the show, Sing On!, for Netflix where he got to travel to London. From there Telvin started applying to every singing show he could find. “When you see those ads on Instagram, apply to it”. Telvin was able to make it onto another show called I Can See Your Voice. Telvin won the first episode of the show and as a reward, he got to sing with Nick Lachey from the boy band 98 Degrees! Of course, Telvin Lewis has also auditioned for the most iconic singing competition of our generation, American Idol. Telvin actually auditioned for Idol several times and there were a lot of no’s, but he didn’t let that deter him. “Every no is a lesson”. Then on Season 15 of American Idol Telvin finally became a golden ticket winner. Telvin made it to the second week of “Hollywood week” on the show. Now Telvin is focused on using that success to boost his music career.
Through the many TV shows he has been on Telvin has been able to garner a modest fanbase. His presence on TV really blew up his social media. Which has allowed him to collaborate with brands. But it has also allowed him to promote and get ears for his singles. Telvin released his debut single Soldier On in 2020. He wrote the song four years ago but waited till the time was right to release it. Soldier On was a love letter to his mom, the person who inspires him the most and has always supported him. Now Telvin is gearing up to go on tour with Glenellen! Their worlds collided during a stint on American Idol. It is on this tour that Telvin plans to debut his new single so stay tuned!
Telvin has seen great success in his musical career and we can tell there is much more to come. He grew up in a musical environment and has strived to make his dreams come true ever since. Telvin has appeared on national television multiple times and is now going on tour. For him, it’s as simple as never giving up. “Stay focused, stay on the path God blessed you with”.
