Who is Giveon?
R&B artist Giveon Dezmann Evans is known only as Giveon to his record label and fans.
Giveon, 27, grew up in Long Beach, California with his three brothers, all of whom were raised by their single mother.
There was an impoverished community with a violent background on the east side of Long Beach, where Giveon’s family lived, but Giveon said his mother protected him and his brothers from their surroundings.
“It was fun, dangerous and interesting all at the same time,” Giveon said of his hometown.

“My mom did a good job of making sure my brothers and I didn’t become a product of our surroundings, but she also gave us space to learn what it means to be from Long Beach.
It was his mother who encouraged him to make music and introduced him to Frank Sinatra who became the inspiration for his sound.
“I had an epiphany after hearing Sinatra for the first time,” Giveon told OkayPlayer.
When his teacher told him to perform Sinatra’s song “Fly Me to the Moon” for a project, the experience changed his life.

“It was the very first time I heard a baritone singer. From there I came to Billy Caldwell and Barry White. At that point I recognized my tone.”
Sinatra became an inspiration for Giveon, who told the outlet, “I gained a lot of confidence in my voice when I discovered Frank Sinatra because I didn’t know baritone singers existed.
“Nobody plays that kind of music where I’m from, so I just thought I sounded weird. Now I’m really thankful for my tone because I stand out.”
He began performing his music on social media when he caught the attention of August 08, a multi-platinum singer-songwriter who has worked with DJ Khaled and Justin Bieber.
In 2018 Giveon released his first two singles “Garden Kisses and Fields” and in 2020 his lead single “Stuck on You”.

Giveon released his first full-length album on June 25, which accompanied the music video of his newly released single Lost Me.
He apologized to fans as he announced the release of his album on Instagram, saying: “Thank you to all my fans for being so patient with me throughout this process.
“I didn’t want to rush this project. I didn’t want to give you anything less than the absolutely honest truth.
“Thank you for staying by my side while I worked on this. I hope you all enjoy it.”
He announced that he will be touring the United States on his Give or Take North American Tour, which will begin on July 8, 2022.
Tickets can be purchased on Giveon’s official website.
Did he perform at the BET Awards?
Giveon brought his music to the BET Music Awards on June 26 but encountered technical issues that led fans to criticize his performance.
He began his 4-minute performance with his hit song Heartbreak Anniversary, but just about 20 seconds into the performance, his microphone seemed to go dead and he began singing incorrectly.
The singer quickly had to switch mics before continuing with his performance, and later jokingly tweeted, “Don’t @BET sabotage my microphone”, with six laughing emojis.

“It wasn’t the microphone. It was your singing,” one person wrote, while another added, “Oh baby the mic was on. it wasn’t the singing. and that’s okay.”
