From zero to viral (videos)
Hall, a Plainview, Texas, native, started performing in elementary school.
“I was just fascinated with the costumes and the lights and the sets and the fog; not only how it looked, but how it worked,” he said. “I started just learning how to dance and writing musicals and writing songs. I always wanted to be creating things. … Basically I just stumbled upon theater and kept performing when I was at high school.”
His professional career kicked off at Disney World as a dancer, and included working on cruise ships and at Radio City Music Hall. He made his Broadway debut at age 20 and competed on “American Idol” himself in 2009. Hall said it was around that time he went to a place “that I was super depressed.”
It was then he turned to YouTube. Hall joined the video-sharing website several years earlier, but didn’t post his first video
