Davidson is known for his impressions of celebrities like Michael Jackson, and Sammy Davis Jr. As a child he says his constant impressions, “drove my mother crazy.” But that all changed when his mom saw Al Jarreau on TV one day, that’s when she realized Davidson had a talent.
His mom wasn’t the only one to notice his talent from a young age. Growing up in the projects of D.C., there was a man named Reggie, who stopped every day and asked, “how you doing lil Tommy?” Years later, he saw Reggie and just like when he was a child, Reggie asked, “how you doing lil Tommy?” And added “I knew you were going to be somebody!”
