Austin Fabre loves to perform. The 11-year-old recently had the chance to showcase his talents as part of a Celebration of Music event. He was one of only a few chosen for the national singing competition. “I didn’t win, but it was definitely a fun opportunity,” Austin says.
The experience was great for him, says Connie Fabre, Austin’s mom. “He’s a beginning singer, model and actor, so he was up against some awesome competition. To get up on stage in front of all those people, sing by himself and get that kind of exposure was really kind of amazing.”
A sixth grader at Mayfair Laboratory School, Austin sings and plays the electric guitar and piano. Completing Barbazon modeling and acting courses led to the competition, and Austin recently signed with a talent agency in Texas.
Austin is also an entrepreneur, operating a successful lemonade stand since he was six. “He’s a go-getter and will hustle the cars like you wouldn’t believe,” Connie says. “He’s got a charitable heart too,” as much of the money he earns from his stand goes to help others. He raised $500 for St. Jude’s in honor of a cousin going through cancer treatments.
When he’s not performing, Austin stays busy. He’s on the swim team, enjoys parkour gymnastics at GymFit, and has been a Cub Scout for five years. He also likes spending time with family, which includes dad, Mike Fabre, and younger brother, Travis.
Connie describes Austin as tenacious and determined. These and many more reasons make Austin one amazing kid.
