Finalist, Yohancé T. Smith

A resident of Sea Cow’s Bay, 23 year old Yohance recognised his singing ability while participating in his Church’s youth choir at the tender age of eight.

His first public performance was during a Christmas concert for the Sea Cow’s Bay Community. Often reminiscing on this iconic performance, Yohancé can be caught watching the video of his first performance from time to time.

Inspired by his mother, and his favourite performing artist, John Legend and Major, he also lists his favourite genre of music as R& B.  Yohance plays the piano, saxophone and percussion instruments.

In five years, Yohancé sees himself releasing his first Extended Play EP, and in 10 years he sees himself as a regional performing artist.
