Gavin Becker has a huge online following and plays sold out shows in his native Philadelphia, but his path hasn’t always been easy. He received thousands of negative comments on his social media posts that hurt and discouraged him from continuing his music career.
He eventually convinced himself to overcome the online bullying. Gavin focused on the positive comments, ignored the negative, and it reinvigorated his passion. Gavin now tours with other social media influencers as a solo act, but believes he would be a strong addition to a band.
At 18 years old, he is an Internet sensation with over 400,000 online followers. In addition to being an accomplished artist, he is also an accomplished student who has plans to study Management at Vanderbilt University in the fall.
Gavin currently has a small band that he plays with at shows. However, the road can get lonely as a solo artist and he wants nothing more than to be a part of group of guys his age who are as passionate about music as he is.
What did you think of the performance? Let us know in the comments section.

“Boy Band” is a new series where talented singers battle it out to become a member of the next great music sensation. And for the first time ever, viewers at home will vote for their favorite five band members, live, creating a group America can truly call its own.
Host Rita Ora welcomed 30 aspiring stars into the ABC studio, but only lucky 18 contestants make the grade. They’re then split into boy bands of six and guided by pop heavyweights. During every live show, each group will have their chance to perform before the judges who will then put two contestants up for elimination.
The chosen two will then perform their solo “survival” song to fight to stay in the competition. Who survives and who is eliminated comes down to you, the voting viewers at home.
In the finale, five winners will get to perform their brand new single together as a group and earn a recording deal with Hollywood Records.
