It would have to be Elton John’s I’m Still Standing.
First artist you saw live?
It really took off with my mom.
Just like the pros prepare for the Ryder Cup, what do you do to prepare for your live shows?
I also prepare for shows in the gym with vocal exercises. I believe it’s important to prepare like an athlete by taking care of myself while doing this music thing. There’s a lot of travel and shows, so I have to be on it and ready to go.
You can play golf with three professional golfers, who is the four ball in that dream?
Shane Lowry, Tiger Woods and Matt Fitzpatrick.
A song that means something to you, why?
It would have to be Georgia on My Mind by Ray Charles. It reminds me of my grandfather’s house when I was a kid and him playing old records.

Wham’s Club Tropicana.
