Details via The Gospel According To Torrence
Dontavies was one of the most memorable contestants from his season and even after his departure from the show kept himself busy in the gospel music industry as a radio announcer in Jacksonville, FL along with singing at industry events and concerts all over the country. Equal parts classical vocalist and Sunday morning squaller, Dontavies was a rare breed of modern gospel singer. In an era where high notes are sometimes misused to determine a singer’s skill level, Dontavies was a soaring and unapologetic baritone who’s range was found in his depth.
