Daniel Seavey's Age: All About The American Idol Star Who Is the Upcoming Band Sensation of 2017

American Idol is a great platform for the upcoming new talent, who dream of pursuing a career in music. American Idol has shaped the career of many, and the same can be said about Daniel Seavey, who made quite the name for himself during the 14th season of the singing reality show, despite the fact that Nick Fradiani emerged as the winner, and not Daniel.

But Daniel is not taking his steps back and has been moving forward, honing his talents. So let us see what makes him the next big thing and the next band sensation of 2017.

Everything You'd Like To Know About Daniel Seavey:

Daniel Seavey was born on April 2, 1999, in Vancouver, WA, and is 18 in age. He is known for being the fan favorite in the 14th season of American Idol, and he made his mark from the get go since his auditions in San Francisco with his rendition of "Hallelujah"- the song which he sang sitting behind a piano.

That expression on Jenifer Lopez's face says it all, right?

Daniel has always been addicted towards music, and he was only seven when he began getting into music. Since then, he has loved music to the depth, and it is known that, along with his father, he used to travel all the way down to Portland to play music on the street.

Speaking of his time on American Idol, he sang "Thinking Out Loud" and "I See Fire" by Ed Sheeran during the Hollywood Rounds that helped him advance to the Showcase Week.

He also sang "Straight Up" by Paula Abdul once more which enabled him to earn a place in the Top 24, where he sang the infamous "I'm Yours" by Jason Mraz.

Moreover, he sang other songs like "How Sweet It Is" by Marvin Gaye, "Happy" by Pharrell Williams and "Lost Stars" by Adam Levine, "You Make My Dreams" by Hall & Oates, but was unfortunately eliminated afterward on April 1, 2015, after reaching the top 9.

During Daniel's time on the show, he was often criticized for his lack of experience and his young age. But after the show, he has been proving the critics wrong and answering them emphatically, as he is now a young music sensation with his boy band "Why Don't We," along with his talented bandmates; Zach Herron, Corbyn Besson, Jonah Marais, and Jack Avery.

The band also performed an epic mash-up while releasing their EP on June 2, 2017.

The band came together last year, but in 2017, they are making positive inroads in their career as a collective band rather than going solo. They are even being termed the next big boy band by many and the way they have been moving forward in their career as a band, the claims might not be wrong.
