Scott Granger - Contestant
When your great aunt is Grammy Award-winning Mahalia Jackson, the "Queen of Gospel Music," there's a good chance that music runs in the family. And music is a river that runs deep within her 19-year-old great nephew, Scotty Granger. At ten years old, he hit the stage of the famed Apollo Theatre and today he belts a soulful tone he describes as Neo-Soul. Self-taught on ten different instruments, Scotty took his talents all the way to the prestigious Berklee School of Music. But this summer he is leaving Berklee behind for the opportunity to become The One.
