The president of Bowie State, Aminta Breaux, said the best is yet to come for Frost.

“I am just so thrilled for Myles, for all that he’s achieved in his young life. I am just so thrilled that he’s able to live out his hopes and dreams and to reach this pinnacle point in his young life. Just very excited — excited for his mother,” Breaux said.

Additionally, the 22-year-old is the youngest actor to win a Tony award solo in his category.

Frost was majoring in music technology prior to being selected in 2021 for the starring role on Broadway after the musical’s producers saw this high school YouTube video of him performing Jackson’s hit, “Billie Jean.” The university went to see him perform on Broadway back in March.

With the Tony award, the possibilities for Frost appear to be endless. Not only can he act and sing, but he’s also a self-taught musician who plays four instruments.

Best of luck to Myles. Wishing you all the success in the world!
