Overall Thoughts: Everything about this guy reminds me of John Legend. Anyway, Rayvon is in my personal top 5 guys. Granted this is very early to call, but from his videos I think he has something special about him. Coupled with a lot of potential, I think Rayvon will stick around for a while. He can show us a lot this season.
- All Of Me, by John Legend. Granted it would be totally karaoke, but if he performs it at the piano it will show he is marketable and fresh.
- Georgia On My Mind, by Ray Charles. I feel like I suggested this song to someone already, but either way, I think Rayvon could slay it.
