Beau Davidson            

Country singer, known for his hit "Blessed," hosted CMT's show "The Singing Bee." Current host of "Daily Blast Live." Performed at 2012 Republican National Convention.

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 titled The Good Hurt. 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 Beaus 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 Kidmans daughter, Sunday Rose on Australian TV. Beau was named one of Nashvilles 25 Most Beautiful People and named one of Cosmopolitan Magazines 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 magazines Cant 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 Youre 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 CMTs #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.

Beau's documentary style music video Blessed that honors 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 served as a judge for the 39th Daytime EMMY Awards

Beau has performed for Governor Mitt Romney, Senator Orrin Hatch (UT), Senator Saxby Chambliss (GA), Johnny Isakson (GA), Former Speaker Newt Gingrich, and other members of Congress. He sang at the 2012 Republican National Convention on primetime television.

He is currently a host of "Daily Blast Live," a national daytime news and entertainment program that focuses on trending news and entertainment. The show is broadcast in real-time, allowing viewers to interact with the hosts via social media. The program is designed to complement people's busy lifestyles with unpredictable, entertaining and trending news, and it encourages viewers to share their reactions and opinions on stories and to vote on content.

Beaus 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.
