He carries a true sense of individuality and character allowing him to connect with people on levels that set him apart. Whether you're a #backrowbeyonce, #frontrowbae, or everywhere in between -- get ready for 'The John Experience', where you can be your most authentic self and yell-sing your favorite hits!
