Lawrence is a native of the Deep South (Mississippi) and his quiet, humble upbringing is a complete contrast to his booming voice and intense passion for music. The remarkable gift grabbed him at the early age of six and it hasn't let go. His gospel background was strengthened with classical training and his repertoire grew through discipline and commitment. Lawrence's sound reflects the great voices that have influenced his musical style: the depth of Barry White, the soul of Mahalia Jackson, the honesty of Bill Withers. His talent as well as his humility have earned Lawrence a place on America's Got Talent and he hopes he'll continue to impress both the audience and the judges.
