My apologizes again for taking so long to post pictures but I hope these will be well worth it. Cincy Sings was an incredible display of the talent that lies in the companies through the Queen City. Christ Hospital took home top honors and also won fan favorite with their “98.6 Degrees” (Can I just say I LOVE their name?!?). But the real winner was Artswave, with the competition helping them to reach their fundraising goal of 12.25 million for this year. Some of the pictures are from the semi-finals that took place in March and were hosted by Q102’s Jon Jon. Enjoy!
A very big thank you to all the folks that I begged and beat down (not really!) to allow me to share their gorgeous pics of Drew from the My2K Tour. Please do not use any pics without permission from the owner. If you have any pics you’d like to share, please feel free to hit me up on twitter, full credit to be given.

Okay, this is way sweet:
This fantastic article and review from Fuse:
Admittedly, I have not been updating nearly as much as I’d like lately. Sometimes life events and work issues have to take precedence over fun…sadly. I’m sorry, I’m going to do better at keeing up, I promise. I got some pics to share but first let’s catch up on all the news, if you haven’t been paying attention and if you have, let’s reminisce, shall we?:
This first one is not tour related but very interesting:
This incredibly cute video from E News:
98 Degrees went on the Today Show and EW wrote this article:

Joey Fatone joined 98 Degrees to sing “Bye Bye Bye”:
Drew’s interview with the Allentown Morning Call:
Better late than never, right? Cincy Sings was once a really cool and fun event put on Artswave and hosted by Drew. All the teams were fantastic but there could be only one winner and Voices of Destiny from P&G won the competition. Also, while waiting on the judges to deliberate, Drew sung a little bit of “Una Noche” in Spanish. Enjoy!!
What a celebration it was! Who knew there was going to be an impromptu 98 Degrees reunion last night?! It apparently was a big surprise for Drew and Nick too! The bar hit capacity at 730 and a line formed all the way down to Vine Street to take pictures with the Lachey brothers! But the party was amazing! Congrats to Drew and Nick and the entire Lachey’s Bar staff for a fantastic year!

The Skivvies put on a tremendous performance at the Ensemble Theatre Cincy on Friday, October 23, 2015. They kept the crowd entertained with their take on songs we all knew. I was fascinated with the instruments they played and the way Lauren and Nick meshed so well together. They brought out Dylan Mulvaney and Sara Mackie, saving the best, Drew, for their last special guest. Of course Drew’s performance was superb. Check it out on youtube here.
