BEAU DAVIDSON - "BLESSED" (OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO)

BEAU DAVIDSON - "BLESSED" (OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO)

Born in Memphis, Tennessee, Regional EMMY® nominee Beau Davidson is an international recording artist, songwriter, and actor. Citing Elvis as a main source of inspiration, Beau has always been fascinated by the musical boundaries that Elvis transcended with simultaneous hits on the country, rhythm and blues, and rock ‘n’ roll charts, as well as his ability to effectively translate his musical talent to the big screen . In Memphis, Beau began taking classical piano lessons at age four, but learned contemporary hits like “Great Balls of Fire” by ear. Beau was soon winning regional talent competitions, competing as a finalist in The Mid-South Fair Youth Talent Contest- a contest graced by Elvis, Justin Timberlake and many other talents. Beau then took his musical aspirations to new heights by attending Northwestern University’s prestigious School of Music in Chicago, where he graduated magna cum laude with a degree in vocal performance/opera and political science. In Chicago, Beau appeared as Danny Zuko in Grease and as the leading man in many other productions, including the Lonny Price-directed A Little Night Music, with George Hearn, Patti LuPone, and Zoe Caldwell. Although operatically trained, Beau simply could not relinquish his Memphis roots, and began writing original music that captured his own experience. 

Beau then moved to Los Angeles where he guest starred on Days of Our Lives and Gilmore Girls. In between projects, he wrote music that he later released as a digital EP. Beau's debut single, “More Than I Can Give,” catapulted his career: independent of any record label or production company, the corresponding music video was integrated by CMT, GAC, MTV, and Vh1, indicative of the fact that Beau’s music appealed to a diverse audience. This success gave rise to interviews and performances on radio stations all across the country. 

Beau was featured on Oprah in 2009, due to their mutual love for Skype, and gained international media attention when asked to pen and premiere an honorary lullaby for Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman’s daughter, Sunday Rose on Australian TV. Beau was named one of “Nashville’s 25 Most Beautiful People” and named one of Cosmopolitan Magazine’s “51 Hottest Bachelors,” representing Tennessee. As a result, he appeared and performed on The Today Show, Fox & Friends, FBN's The Strategy Room, Entertainment Tonight, and The Daily Buzz. Beau appeared in In Touch magazine’s “Can’t Miss Guide,” in Country Weekly, and Clear Channel selected him to perform on the 2010 Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon live in Las Vegas. He is a ClearChannel featured “Artist to Watch.” 

In 2010, Producer Brad Bell of The Bold and the Beautiful created an opportunity for Beau to guest star on the show, both acting and singing the Frank Myers song “You’re All I Ever Wanted.” Beau performed at the American Spirit Pageant (hosted by Mario Lopez), emceed the 2011 Miss Maine/Massachusetts Pageant, judged the Miss United States Pageant finals in Las Vegas, and serves as Master of Ceremonies for the Miss North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, and Louisiana USA Pageants in Donald Trump's Miss Universe Organization. He sang with Broadway great Kristin Chenoweth on television for the 2011 CMA Festival and her Grand Ole Opry debut. In 2011, he joined the cast of CMT’s #1 show, The Singing Bee as a lead vocalist. 

On 11.11.11, Beau returned to The Bold and the Beautiful, premiering his song “Blessed” on a special Veterans Day episode. He also performed the song at the MAACO Las Vegas Bowl live on ESPN in 2011 for 40,000 fans. The “Blessed” documentary style music video honoring the US military debuted on CMT July 4, 2012. It was featured in the annual Boston Pops July 4th Spectacular. The video earned Beau his very first EMMY® nomination at the 27th Annual Mid-South Regional EMMY® Awards (2013). Beau serves as a judge for the 39th and 40th Daytime EMMY® Awards. 

Governor Mitt Romney appointed Beau as a campaign surrogate for his 2012 Presidential campaign. He sang at the 2012 GOP Convention on primetime television for 21 million viewers. 

The United States Jaycees selected Beau as one of the Ten Outstanding Young Americans of 2013 for its 75th anniversary, a prestigious award given to individuals under age 40 who have achieved significant career success, dedicated their lives to service, and represent the best attributes of their generation. Past recipients include Presidents Kennedy, Nixon, Ford, Clinton, and Teddy Roosevelt, as well as athletes Peyton Manning and Arthur Ashe, Nelson D. Rockefeller, Henry Ford II, and Elvis Presley, whose award was his only non-musical honor. 

Beau is an ambassador for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), Susan G. Komen for the Cure, The Eating Disorders Coalition of Tennessee, The National Wildlife Federation, and Colon Cancer Awareness. 

Beau’s insatiable drive, tenacity, and entrepreneurial spirit have enabled him to experience unprecedented success through his own initiative. Pushing musical and career boundaries, in much the same way Elvis did, he finds innovative ways to integrate music with television, film, and other media, while staying committed to the purity and soul of each song.

Entertainment/Music
Demand for music has increased, thanks to lower prices and easier portability, but has the quality of music improved? Has the internet created true "stars," or do we have to rely on a panel of three on television to tell us who is talented? A digital age has made music much easier to produce, but also easier to manufacture an act, and thus fewer artists succeed. Beau is a success as an independent artist- trained at Northwestern University in classical voice, but whose endeavors have expanded to country music, the Broadway stage, and premieres on international television. As a judge for the daytime Emmy Awards for composition, he has an insider's view of what it takes to be a musical success and where trends are heading. 

Youth/Millennials
Generation Y has been sometimes called Generation "Why Bother?" Youth are distracted with devices, instant gratification, and have few role models to look up to, especially in the entertainment world. Many under the age of 30 have had to move back with their parents, due to a poor job market and crippling student loan debt. So what is the identity of Gen Y? As a recent recipient of the "Ten Outstanding Young Americans Award," which he shares with Presidents Kennedy, Nixon, and Elvis Presley, Beau addresses the issues his generation faces and what type of leadership is needed to succeed to in today's malaise. His Emmy-nominated composition "Blessed," was written as a musical interpretation of his generation's identity and notion of patriotism. 

Politics/Current Events
As a surrogate for Mitt Romney in 2012, Beau conveyed the pressing issues of the day: a floundering economy, joblessness, energy dependence, an egregious tax code, and an immigration crisis. Now that the effects of two presidential cycles are being felt, America has had to face the elephant in the room. Beau breaks down the issues that were not fixed in 2012, and discusses how we can move forward in 2014 and 2016. He also addresses the shifting political landscape and how everyone has an opportunity to change it. 

Christian/Faith
One tenet that has been consistent in Beau's unique career has been his faith. It was so pressing that he addressed it in a lyric of his song "Blessed" where he asks "Is faith a notion, or a fear of Hell? Or have we lost our very faith in faith itself? Is it our rock, or is it madness? Or do we cling to it like rain in times of sadness?" In an industry that has seen the deaths of countless entertainers due to addiction, Beau has instead clung to the rudder of his belief in God. There was a time when being a Christian leader was a noble, admirable perception, but now Christians find themselves considered an out-of-touch cult in a secularized, self-adoring nation.
