Christian said, “I hope to contribute fun and excitement to this new singing contest. Though I didn’t win before, through hard work and faith I was able to reach my dreams. I want to be able to share those valuable experiences to the contestants too.”
Erik, for his part, shared, ” I hope to inspire the contestants and show them not only does it take talent, but lots of patience, hard work and humility, to make it in this business.”
