He started his musical journey as a baby, drumming to The Blue Man Group wherever he went. He’s performed in front of audiences since he was 2 years old, singing, playing piano and more recently, guitar. When he was 6 years old, he won a karaoke competition on a Carnival cruise. He also completed training as a model through Barbizon USA in 2018 and has been selected to compete in a competition in Dallas, TX, in August and was also selected to compete in Barbizon’s Passport to Discovery, one-week cruise in October where over 100 agencies will be searching for new talent.

Of course, Austin also finds time for gaming and he’s a serious Fortnight enthusiast whose got his sights set on being a gaming Youtuber one day. He’s also an entrepreneur. Austin has operated a lemonade stand since he was 5 years old and was featured in Baton Rouge’s The Advocate newspaper when he was 6 years old and when he was 9 years old. In 2017 he raised $540 in one afternoon for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in support of his 12-year-old cousin who was diagnosed with lymphoma.

He’s a tenacious and determined person.
It is music, however, that brings Austin the most happiness. He’s always enjoyed singing in school and church performances and playing piano recitals. In December 2018, he began taking guitar lessons and playing in a Baton Rouge School of Rock 101 band. Playing in the band has taken Austin’s talent to a new level because he’s experiencing how all the different instruments and singing come together to create something beautiful and exciting. Celebration of Music is the epitome of this kind of experience and that’s why he’s so honored to be a part of the show. Give him your vote today!
