Gavyn Bailey is 15 at this writing.
"Gavyn Bailey is not a fabricated product. He has a story that inspires his music. Gavyn was born with kidney failure and needed a transplant when he was 3. A decade later, he is en route to fulfill his dream of becoming a singer and open a charity for kids with the same condition he confronted. But you wouldn’t guess any of that from his stage presence."

Gavyn's is a compelling story because it speaks to the sustaining and inspirational power of music. As a CBS article mentioned: "Even before Gavyn could formulate words music was medicine."
