Jake’s Take Podcast: Author & Singer Branden James (The 60th Episode)

By: Jacob Elyachar, jakes-take.com

For the milestone sixtieth episode of The Jake’s Take with Jacob Elyachar Podcast, I welcomed my longtime friend: author and singer Branden James.

Our paths first crossed in 2013 when Branden first appeared on America’s Got Talent (AGT)’s eighth season. I was genuinely moved by his showmanship and his outstanding covers of “You Raise Me Up,” “Alone,” and “Hallelujah.” Months after he was eliminated one week before the Season Eight finale, I conducted my first interview with Branden.

There are only several guests have appeared on both jakes-take.com and The Jake’s Take with Jacob Elyachar Podcast that I can say I developed strong friendships with, and Branden James is one of them. I am proud of all that Branden has accomplished throughout his career, including starting up a new act with his husband, James Clark. The duo (Branden + James) performed in over 50 countries and performed in various venues that range from Feinstein’s 54Below to live-streaming concerts.

For the first time since 2013, Branden James returns solo for an exclusive interview. In this edition of The Jake’s Take with Jacob Elyachar PodcastBranden talked about his new memoir: Lyrics of My Life: My Journey with Family, HIV, and Reality TV. He also spoke about being a part of AGT’s legacy and Chasing Dreams, his first studio album that he recorded under Branden + James.
