Wow time sure flies. 5 years ago, in the summer of 2006 I vividly remember vegging out in front of the TV (thanks to leg surgery), watching an at-the-time-brand-new-hit-show called America’s Got Talent. To my surprise, a group of Asian-American dudes walked on the screen and absolutely blew everyone away with their “Hip-Hop-apella” rendition of some classic songs.
It was more than enough to get them to the next round, and for good reason. Unfortunately, although they made the finals, their next appearance wasn’t quite enough to make it to the next round. Their harmonies were still tight but some of their solos weren’t as on point, and I think the audience picked up on it too.
Long story short? Thouh they didn’t win the inaugural season of the show, they had won over many new fans (myself included) and gained a lot of exposure. Not too long after, one of the members left the group and they changed management to be the newly christened Tatum Jones. Unfortunately they haven’t been too active as of late but I’m hoping 2011 will be the year that changes… at last.
