JR Mitchell. You Know Me On-Air at Q-106.5…but, Did You know Me as a Singer?
You’ve known me on the air for nearly 10 years here at Q-106.5, and some of you have heard me sing at events, and from my Facebook page, but for those of you that don’t really know…I’m a singer, and not to break my arm patting myself on the back, I do OK for a rookie!
I come from a musical family, if you are old enough to remember The Curly ‘O Brien Show that aired here in Bangor many years ago, Jackie is my aunt, and she and my mother will always argue that I was switched at birth, should’ve been my Aunt Jackie’s son!
Well through school, I was very involved in music, after school sang in bands, ran a very successful Karaoke company, and to this day, am still hired and asked to sing at various events around the State of Maine. Quite possibly one of my biggest thrills was singing at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville back in 2000 and winning the singing competition!
As the 4th of July approaches, I want to share a few songs that are special to me, one of them is the song I won at the Wildhorse Saloon with ‘God Bless the USA’ and the other ‘Some Gave All’ just a favorite of mine to sing! So celebrate the 4th of July with pride and I Hope you enjoy my songs!
‘God Bless the USA’
‘Some Gave All’
