With millions of viral views from his time on America’s Got Talent, Broadway credentials, and chart-topping singles, the singer-songwriter and entertainer Brian Justin Crum knew he was destined for stardom from a very early age. He first fell in love with performing after his mom, a single mother, put her kids into an after-school theatre program so she could work. At 7 years old was already telling his mother he was going to be a star. Fast forward years later and barely out of high school, Brian was cast in the Broadway musical &"Wicked.” It was his first taste of Broadway. Soon he was living in New York City and landing roles in the musicals &"Altar Boyz,” &"Grease” and &"Next to Normal. &" But it was the role as Galileo Figaro in Queen’s rock theatrical &"We Will Rock You” that got him closer to that lofty promise he made to his mom at 7 years old. The reviews celebrated his performance as a &"triumph,” and earned him a handful of awards for Best Actor. He was well on his way to being a star. Brian continued that trajectory when he was cast in America’s Got Talent Season 11. As one of the most talked about performers, Brian earned a 4th place finish with renditions of Queen's "Somebody to Love", Radiohead's "Creep", Phil Collins' In the Air Tonight and Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror.” His performances from the show turned even larger viral sensations online, garnering millions of views on YouTube, some of the highest online statistics seen by the show’s emerging talent in its now twelve successful seasons. With a growing fan base invested in both his music and his roles in anti-bullying and LGBT efforts, Brian’s star continues to rise. Between dropping covers like Robyn’s &"Show Me Love” which soared to #2 on the Billboard Dance Charts, touring the country, and competing against 50 top talents on &"America’s Got Talent: Champions;” Brian’s next move may be his biggest yet: his debut EP.
