GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- Thompson, 33, graduated in 2012 but opted to stay in San Francisco to continue teaching the Gospel Gators. He’s been able to pass on a lot of musical knowledge he gained taking lessons from his first vocal coach Janice Maxi Reed and world-renowned gospel artist Allowyn Price. Alongside him on the judges panel was musical director Anthony White, another Gospel Gators lifer. He first joined as a drummer 14 years ago and now helps run the organization.
