Music is not Clinton Knox III’s major, but he has scored a major musical coup.
The MTSU sophomore accounting major from Memphis captured second place in Broadcast Music Inc.’s Talent Showcase in Atlanta earlier this summer with a vocal performance of John Legend’s “Stay with You.”
It was so entertaining that the audience brought Knox back for an encore, which he granted by walking off the stage into the audience and singing directly to them at their tables.
