* LIONEL RICHIE: 'It's refreshing. The way you sound, your delivery, you're delivering all of my checkboxes'

* KATY PERRY: 'I don't have to convince myself that this sounds good, it just does'

* LUKE BRYAN: 'You're the reason why I signed up for American Idol'

I'm remarkably focused when it comes to music. I've been singing since I was 3 years old, so it's second nature to me. As of now, I've released two projects independently, became Top 10 on American Idol, and was featured in Rolling Stone Mag.

    It's not often that someone can bring a song to life, that makes you sit back and say "that's it". Dennis did that. So incredibly soulful. Such a talented vocalist. It's also not often that you can feel comfortable with a vocalist adding their creativity to the vocals, but Dennis has an incredible feel for music and its vibe. He captured the emotion of the song perfectly. Cannot WAIT to work with him again!!! Thank you Dennis. I appreciate you!
