From zero to vi­ral (videos)

GA Voice - - Outspoken -

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
