Xavier Gantt

Xavier has a strong background in theater arts, music, and recently became involved with grassroots organizing. He is an Oakland native, born and raised, and comes from a family of advocates (and a beautiful black queen he calls Mom), who inspired him to become passionate about everything he does. His passion is to not only become a musical icon and important public figure, but also to build a solid foundation of support for Oakland that is grounded from his struggle, and build with his success. Xavier’s life goals are to do as much as he can as a singer, activist, songwriter, youth leader, public speaker, and performer to affect his community and spread the message of hope and brighter days.
