This Monday, July 1st is a very exciting day. Two years ago, I started working with Nick Hissom, a young student and model. He had a good voice, and a lot of potential. We did long, 3-5 hour sessions because he didn’t live in Las Vegas.
He traveled all over the planet, on modeling jobs, and holidays, and back and forth to his home in the UK and Pennsylvania for school. His European managers had found me online, and contacted me, with a confidentiality contract. So I worked with him in secret for about 7 months when he was in town.
This is a singer who could do any genre he wanted. He sang Sinatra for me! He also did pop and r&b. The next step was to get him out there, Kenny Ortega was hired. Kenny added dancers, to get the show moving. And there was Nick, out there singing and dancing all over the country. He even has shoes that light up around the soles when he dances. I bet Usher wishes he had those.
This new single that comes out Monday on iTunes, called, ‘If I Die Young’ (not the country song of the same name).
Nick is the son of the beautiful Andrea Wynn, married to Steve Wynn. His father is the well-known Robert Hissom. Nick and his brother were raised in Europe and educated at a boarding school.
Nick is on e of the nicest people I have known. He was only 19 when he came to me. When he was in Las Vegas, we would meet for dinner, and if not that, he would still text me and stay in touch. I have so much respect for him, that he has done the homework, and followed his heart to make music.
After our second lesson, we recorded his voice doing “My Way’ for his mum, and Steve. He got thumbs up, and we all had dinner to meet. Mr. Wynn is so into music, I am afraid, the two of us chatted about that one and this one so much, that we ignored everyone else. We spoke so much, and just about forgot to eat.
Nick, I wish you a long and successful career in this business, we call Show!
