The Artist: Chris Eberlein is a singer and songwriter whose glittering voice and catchy songs have earned him acclaim over a 15-plus year career. After starting out as a rising star on the CCM market as a teenaged singing wunderkind, he quickly transitioned to the indie pop genre while attending the famous Berklee College of Music. To date, he has released six albums and a slew of singles that have earned him praise, awards and recognition.

The Voice: It’s an extremely malleable, perfectly blended mixture of classical training and pop mannerisms in four behemoth octaves. It's pure as an Idahoan mountain stream with just enough sass required in pop music. It's Broadway belting and Britney commercialism all wrapped into one.
