LeSean Lewis started training at Rhodes College in Memphis, TN at the age of eight.  He continued his training at Overton High School of the performing arts.  It was there he received his first national accolade and was chosen to participate with the very first Grammy in the Schools Jazz choir.  This sixteen member choir performed at the Grammys held in New York City in 1994 with the likes of such noted artist Natalie Cole, Whitney Houston, Sting and many others.
LeSean continued his vocal training at Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA.  He sang with the renowned Morehouse College Glee Club and served as Student Director, baritone of the quartet and featured soloist during his tenure.  He was afforded the right to tour all over the US, Russia and Africa.  He also performed in the 1996 Olympic Opening and Closing ceremonies with Leontyne Price, Gloria Estefan and Gladys Knight.  At Morehouse, he competed for and won many competitions.  The most memorable was the Leontyne Price Vocal competition which awarded him the opportunity to sing a solo recital at Carnegie Hall in 1998 accompanied by Joseph Joubert.  LeSean was the youngest African-American male to sing a solo recital at Carnegie Hall at that time.  LeSean was also featured on Atlanta’s channel news 5 as one of the upcoming artist in Atlanta hosted by Raven Simone.
Although LeSean took a sabbatical from performing, his career still blossoms with sporadic highlights such as singing with the Moses Hogan singers, touring Europe in the opera Porgy and Bess with the Atlanta Opera chorus, and featured soloist around the United States of America.  He recently moved to Las Vegas NV where he teamed his talents up with Broadway in the Hood as Assistant Music Director and Vocal Coach.
