And it appears like you will get a chance to come see him perform right here in Selma. According to Levitt AMP Selma concerts, he will be performing at the Selma Amphitheater on Saturday, June 22 at 8 p.m. Gates for the free concert will open at 7 p.m. Vendors and food trucks can sign up to come to the event as well.

“Thank you for making me believe in myself, and I promise I will never let you down,” HaVon said on the broadcast. “I am truly humbled and grateful for this moment. First, Thank you to God for this gift and this opportunity to share it.

One of HaVon’s biggest fans is Reba McEntire.

“I have seen you grow. I have seen you change, not any way in your personality or talent, but in your happiness… I love you with all my heart. Peace be with you.”

We love you Asher. Way to go! We will see you in a few weeks!
