My first big performance was my 3rd grade choir concert where I played Ray Charles and got to sing “Georgia On My Mind”.

I’m pretty sure I would have the John Travolta from Pulp Fiction play because he is cool.

Eric Van Cleave

Who’s your favorite performer?
My favorite performer would have to be Cedric Bixler-Zavala of my favorite band, The Mars Volta.
