On May 31, Avery Dixon will perform on America’s Got Talent stage to showcase his talent during the season 17 premiere.
The musician will perform for the judges in the hopes of progressing to the live events. Avery is a gifted musician who has a chance to win the competition.
So, who is Avery Dixon, and where did he come from? Avery has already done a lot at the age of 21. As AGT season 17 begins, learn more about the young saxophonist.
Avery wanted to learn how to play an instrument, so he chose the saxophone at the store.
According to a 2013 interview, he was a natural from the start, learning “harder tunes within the first month of playing.” President Barack Obama sent Avery a letter praising him on his musical achievements.
Avery was born 24 weeks early, weighing only 1 pound 8 ounces. According to his official bio, he was “not expected to live.” In 2013, his mother, Lisa, remarked, “His little finger wouldn’t even wrap completely around my pointer finger.” Entrees is the title of his debut EP.
Avery was kept alive for 39 days by a tube inserted into his throat. Avery’s vocal cords were pierced by the tube, which created a small hole. According to his bio, this causes his voice to be “pitchy and airy” since his vocal chords do not close entirely.
This aggravates his asthma and makes breathing difficult for him at times.
On Instagram and TikTok, Avery routinely broadcasts videos of himself playing the saxophone.
He sings Alicia Keys, Boyz II Men, and John Legend’s songs. He shares behind-the-scenes looks at his performances at weddings, festivals, and other events.
Maxwell Davis was Avery’s great-grandfather.
Maxwell was a saxophonist, arranger, and record producer who specialized in R&B music. He collaborated with performers like as B.B. King, Etta James, and others.
