Another success story. I remember auditioning this young man Yoann FreeJay Perso for The 100 Voices choir at our Soundcheck and ended up putting him in the show that same night. He blew me away. He later went on to win The Voice France. If you have an occasion to be in NY, or if you’re in NY, by all means go by and check him out. You won’t be disappointed.
