Hearing the Lt. Governor of Illinois, Juliana Stratton, and the state’s top LGBTQ radio host, Jonny Gray, rave about my work today on Illinois’ Got Talent was unreal. I am so honored and humbled. I did not win the audience vote, but the response from the judge’s panel was exactly what I needed. I face a lot of doubt and insecurity about my work (as I think most artsits do), so getting their feedback meant the world to me. Thank you to all who supported me and the well wishes. I’m so thrilled I got to be a part of it!!!
Bea Arthur has something to add about this whole “cheugy” nonsense. (apparently this emoji is cheugy) Watch here: https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMeWmC4uk/

I am thrilled to announce that I have been selected as a finalist in Illinois’ Got Talent – an LGBTQ talent event sponsored by the largest pride organization in the state – Equality Illinois.

Check out my new impressions of the amazing Fraggle Rock muppets Mokey and Wembley! There are many more where these came from – after all – this is the show that turned me into a wannabe voice actor as a child (a dream that came true!!). Stay tuned – more to come. Enjoy!
My life has been hectic lately, but I wanted to share my cover of “Everlasting Love” from one of my latest streaming shows. I love this song, and it’s the kind of classic confection that just brings a smile to your face. May it bring you some joy! 🙂
2021 is almost here, and this song feels appropriate. A Paula Abdul classic about the promise a new day can offer – or in this case a new year. Enjoy!
Up first my cover of the gorgeous Troye Sivan song, “Wild” – from my latest concert on Sessions Live!
