Jamel Coy Hudson (eliminated)
St. Anthony’s High School
South Huntington, New York
Jamel Coy Hudson is currently a senior at St. Anthony’s High School in South Huntington. He dances, acts, plays the guitar and piano. This past summer, he showcased his talents in a one-man show, “This Is Me,” at the Islip Town Hall.
Jamel’s favorite singers are Sammy Davis, Jr. and Prince because both men have had the ability to captivate audiences with great live performances and have been highly respected, extraordinary entertainers. However, he credits Michael Jackson as being his biggest inspiration since at only four years old Jamel started watching tapes of Jackson and mimicking his dance moves.
In addition to his musical talents, Jamel is also a three-time Catholic High School Champion in wrestling, winning the New York State Wrestling Championship this year in the 132 lb. weight class. At the start of the championship round at the State Finals this year, Jamel incorporated his vocal talents when he sang “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
Jamel would love to perform at Carnegie Hall in a style reminiscent of members of the famed Rat Pack—Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis, Jr.
Jamel currently resides in Bay Shore, New York.
