Bostic is a freshman from Haughton and marketing major.

In addition to performing at GSU and in surrounding communities, Entourage has performed in Houston, Dallas, Knoxville, Tenn., and at McNeese State University.
This year, Entourage will celebrate its 10th anniversary on Saturday evening at 6 at Grambling’s New Rocky Valley Baptist Church.
In September, the group will perform on the Bobby Jones Gospel Show.
