Dwayne Ellison is the brother of Melody Ellison.




Dwayne, like many members of the Ellison and Porter family, is an excellent singer. He is eighteen at the start of No Ordinary Sound. While he was accepted into Tuskegee University, he later declines in order to take up a singing career in a group later named "The Three Ravens." While he initially believes that his singing career will help elevate his status, he learns that singers are treated with prejudice as well.
