(CMR)A 17-year-old Jamaican music genius honored Kamala Harris through his performance at a ceremony held in her honor on Tuesday.
Joseph Davis, who plays 12 instruments, including piano, drums, bass guitar, electric and acoustic guitar, and the euphonium, was selected by the California State Society (CSS) to perform the national anthem at the Washington, DC, virtual event, which had approximately 350 people in attendance, The Gleaner reported.
Davis, from Montego Bay, was born in the United Kingdom to Jamaican parents and now attends the Idyllwild Arts Academy in California.
According to the report, Davis, selected from a group of competitors at his school, was to sing the anthem acapella.
Davis produced his own harmonized version of the American national anthem and created a video of his performance from his bedroom in Montego Bay, the report said.
Davis considers performing at an event to honor Harris a major achievement.
Vice President-elect Harris will be sworn in by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor today, a history-making event in which the first Black, South Asian, and female vice president will take her oath of office from the first Latina justice.
