Well, Well, Well... Wes Lee and I made it all the way to the Finals at the IBC with our duo Sweet ‘n’ Salty!!! That means we were in the top 8 of 91 solo/duo performers from around the world!! Kevin BF Burt took Home the win! He was awesome! And our friend, Daniel Eriksen made runner up! Wes and I would have liked to have won, of course, but we’re proud of our run and happy for all who made it to the finals! Well done!! All winners!!
