ATLANTA, GA (Thursday, March 21, 2019) — Nearly five years after going viral on YouTube (1 million+ views) singing, “I Won’t Complain” in his high school cafeteria, 19-year-old viral sensation-turned-chart-topping-recording-artist, Kelontae Gavin continues to tally Billboard chart achievements reaching new levels of success and fame.
