Chris Wallace stopped by Seacrest Studios at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) while in town to perform the National Anthem at the Georgia Tech basketball game. He explained that it was easy to choose what to wear for his performance because his alma mater, Purdue, has the same school colors at Georgia Tech!
While studying at Purdue, Chris wrote his first song, "Remember When (Push Rewind)" in his college dorm room. He played the song for his cousin, who told him he hated it, but Chris loved it so much he posted it online. Good thing he did, because within two weeks major music labels were interested in signing him! Soon enough his music was on the radio, and he remembers hearing his song for the first time on air while in Orlando.
The patients asked some other really great questions:
Q: Name a place you’d like to visit that you’ve never been A: Japan
Q: Who is one of your favorite artists? A: Taylor Swift
Q: Who would you like to record a song with? A: Pink
Q: Since you were in a band and you also have a solo career, which is better? A: Being in a band is fun because you’re hanging out with your friends, but when you’re solo, you are the sole decision maker, so less politics!”
Q: Where do you see yourself in five years? A: Traveling the world, writing more songs for myself and other people and hopefully coming back to CHOA for another visit!
We definitely hope another visit to CHOA is in Chris' future and we thank him for spending time with us.
