Flint Native Tours with the Cast of Broadway's The Bodyguard
EAST LANSING, MICH. - Last week, Wharton Center welcomed the first U.S. National tour of the hit Broadway musical The Bodyguard. Based on the 1992 Oscar nominated film, the musical features a number of stars including R&B/pop recording artist Deborah Cox.
But one of the shows stars feels more at home while performing at the Wharton Center, Flint native Kevelin B. Jones III.
Jones began his journey after being awarded "Best Overall Child Singer" at the 2016 AMTC Shine Conference. He’s performed for the Idlewild Music Festival, celebrity basketball games and local youth theaters before hitting the stage.
"It's really nice to be on stage and show people what I can do and do what I love; singing, dancing, acting and just have fun with it," said Jones.
While Jones enjoys the touring with the production he doesn't let the fame get in the way of being a kid, "I like to play with my sister and brother when I have breaks, I like to play on my phone or watch t.v. and just relax."
Jones sat down with HOMTV to share his great experiences, what it’s like to be in large production, and more.
The Bodyguard performed at the Wharton Center October 17th through 22nd.
