Have you heard about a show on TV called The Voice? Have you ever wondered what Shakira is really like? Well wonder No longer. We have have Singer/Songwriter Jeremy Briggs in studio, straight from his time on The Voice. We talk about his history in music and baseball. We hear about his journey with Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll...but he didn't do the Sex and Drugs part and just stuck with the music.
