A dedicated, committed, and compassionate young lady with an amazing vocal range.
Olivia Blackman is a 17-year-old young lady that attends Gifted Hands Academy in Atlanta, GA. She is the daughter of Colin Blackman, and Sharon Rose. Her optimistic and ambitious spirit has her dreaming to become a medical doctor one day, and her academic goal is fueled by God’s grace which has kept her on the honor roll since she was 11 years old.
She has been a recording vocalist from a tender age of seven. She is also a Christian young lady that believes in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In addition, she is also a member of Teen Leadership Training Program at the Belvedere Vanguard Pathfinders Club. God has truly been blessing her. One of such blessing was receiving an award for the Command Performance and FIRST PLACE in the Female Vocalist at the in 2018 and Accelerated Christian Education International Student Convention and recently at the 2019 SUN Coast Regional Student in Hudson, Florida.
She was also awarded FIRST PLACE in the prestigious award of “C.A.P.” Event, (Communication and Potential) Leadership designed to encourage students to broaden their scope of communication and leadership abilities. This is not a specific event that students enter but rather a culmination of all points earned. Requirements for this Award, the contestants had to enter at least one event in each of the four following categories which I got a perfect score in
- Music Performance (Vocal)

She has been selected to sing 15 songs for 3ABN TV, to air in the near future on their children television network, "Kids Time Praise" with Brenda Walsh. Also, she recently finished recording her first CD with ten songs.
Some of her other talents include, memorizing scriptures, public speaking, sewing, crocheting, baking, painting, acting, playing the piano, and the harp. She is also fun loving, smart, happy, a fast learner, role model, and is an excellent communicator.
She really loves the Lord and at the tender age of seven years old accepted Christ as her personal Savior and was baptized. She has been faithful using her gifts for God and is very active in her local church; She is totally committed to serving God and using her gifts accordingly.
