What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music career?

Do you sing in the shower? What songs?
Mike C Da Champ: Yes, honestly I think everyone sings in the shower. Last Two Dollars by Johnnie Taylor which is a blues song or Time Marches On by Tracy Lawerence which is a country song (laughs out loud.) Don’t judge me, I love music.
What’s next for you?
