D’Corey Johnson Biography – D’Corey Johnson Wiki
D’Corey Johnson is a singer and contestant on America’s Got Talent (AGT) 2023. He became a Louisville sensation after singing the National Anthem during morning announcements at school and later went on tour for three months to perform across America. His song “Breonna Taylor,” about a fellow Louisville native, is on streaming platforms.
Before the world heard his voice, though, D’Corey — who also goes by D.C. — was just another 4-year-old singing in his church choir in Louisville, where his talent first stood out.
D’Corey’s mother enrolled him in theater classes at the Louisville Central Community Center, a West End organization that helps people develop skills in fields including arts and academia. He earned a place in the program after performing “Who’s Loving You” by the Jackson 5 for LCCC President and CEO Kevin Fields, who said the then-6-year-old’s audition “knocked my socks off” and earned a standing ovation.
The LCCC founded the Tiny Tykes, a performing arts program for preteens, to support D’Corey, who was too young to join other groups, and before long he was playing roles locally in musicals like “Aladdin,” “Cats” and “Annie.”
His first big break came during morning announcements at James H. Bates Elementary School. The principal of his school asked him to sing the national anthem on the intercom for the school one day and posted the video online with his mother’s permission.
The clip went viral, and soon, pro teams and others came calling. He sang the anthem at Nissan Stadium in Nashville before a 2022 game between the Tennessee Titans and the New York Giants, for instance, and performed “Lift Every Voice And Sing” in honor of Black History Month at state Capitol in 2022. He got a legislative citation by Sen. Gerald Neal when he sang in the Kentucky Senate.
In September 2022, he lined up a talent agent and announced he was moving to California to pursue his dream to make it big.
