JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – After watching dozens of submissions from singers, our judges narrowed the choices to four -- and on Wednesday night, you voted and chose Antwoine Overby Jr. as the winner of the 2021 “Oh Say Can You Sing” contest.
“If you keep pushing, you keep pressing, there are some open doors ahead of you,” Overby Jr. said after winning.
Overby Jr. receives $500 and will perform The Star-Spangled Banner on the Local Station’s Fourth of July fireworks show, which will air Sunday on Channel 4.
Here’s a bit about the 34-year-old Jacksonville man:
- Employed: ADT Security
- Favorite musicians: Sam Cooke, Al Green, Ron Isley and R. Kelly
- Overby has been singing for three decades and has already received national recognition for his singing
- He says singing is a lifestyle and his passion for singing started with a popular soda. He hopes that his lifelong passion for singing earns him the title this year.
