Move over, Ed Sheeran – and make some room for newcomer Chase Goehring. The Tennessee native is about to take the world by storm, and he is giving us all major Ed vibes. You're going to want to remember his name, which is why we're here to break it all down for you and hit you with all the information you need to know about the swoon-worthy singer.
Chase Goehring received major attention after his standout performance of an original song titled “A Capella” on Season 12 of America's Got Talent, where he's competing for the top prize.
Record label executive and producer DJ Khaled, who is a judge on Season 12 of America's Got Talent, sent Chase straight to the live show round by hitting the infamous metallic button. Each judge may only use the Golden Buzzer one one contestant per season, and we think it's safe to say DJ Khaled selected wisely.
“The lyrics are real and authentic, the way you breakin’ it down. You’re on your way to be a star. This show and this stage is going to make you into a superstar,” DJ Khaled said. “We got to work together.”
After winning a YouNow singer-songwriter contest, Chase was on The X Factor.
"I actually didn’t plan on auditioning for The X Factor," he said in an interview. "I was participating in a younow.com singer/song-writer competition and one of the judges worked with Sony Music. She was like, 'We think you would be a great addition to the show.' So a couple weeks later I ended up in Long Island, New York and auditioned for the judges."
The singer is 21 years old.
Hmm, we wonder if he's tight with Cameron Dallas...
Chase is from Nolensville, Tennessee.
