Charlotte, NC (KSDK) - A St. Louis native will be gracing the stage at the Democratic National Convention this week.
Jake Martin is a 2010 graduate of Parkway North High School who is now attending college in North Carolina on a guitar and vocal scholarship.
Although Martin's experience is playing in rock bands, his singing ability has landed him a spot in a gospel choir that will perform at the convention.
"It's a completely new thing for me because I've never been a choir person and now I'm doing it for the first time on a really big stage," said Martin.
Martin and the rest of the choir will perform with American Idol finalist Jessica Sanchez on Wednesday evening.
