Born in Philadelphia and raised in Orlando, Florida, Kevin Cossom first found his love and talent for song in church. Kevin's mother- an educator and founder of a performing arts academy- was her son's first supporter, encouraging him to perform his first solo at the tender age of three. He later joined his first group, a gospel act his mother assembled, at the age of six. However, the young singer/songwriter didn't realize that he wanted to make music his life until he was 14. Once the high school-aged Kevin met Rashad Tyler, his manager, that's when things began to click for the young upstart.
