my guest for episode 242 is singer/songwriter and show biz veteran, kendall beard! kendall just released her first album, all around girl, a few months ago, but by the time she released it, she was already a seasoned veteran. she started singing lessons at 10 years old, by 15 she was working with a professional singing group under the guidance of boyz 2 men in philadelphia, she made it as a semi-finalist on american idol, she started writing honest songs and working with my dear old friend, a.j. vallejo and now she's got all around girl to show where she's been. we had a great coversation. she was honest, entertaining and humble. i hope you enjoy getting to know kendall. i did.
