1. Sevyn competed in Showtime at the Apollo at the age of 10
Early on, Sevyn knew she wanted to pursue a career in music and by the time she was 9 years old, she began to take her singing career seriously. When she reached the tender age of 10, she received her first big break while performing at “Showtime at the Apollo”. She tied for first place by singing, “My Funny Valentine” and at that moment knew that this was what she was destined to do. She later formed a gospel group with her cousins and had her first recording session when she was 14 years old.
