HOUSTON – Houston native Christina Wells was a registered nurse when she decided to participate in Season 13 of "America’s Got Talent."
One year after her successful run on the show, on which she gained national fame and was a semifinalist, Wells decided to quit her job to focus on her music career.
“Nursing will always be there for me, I’m grateful for my education and I will always have it, but yeah, it’s time to take a bet on me and see if I can make this thing, the 15 minutes (of fame) to a lifetime,” said Wells, who stopped by our studio to promote her latest single “Ready or Not,” which she co-wrote with music producer Billy Dorsey.
“This new single is my message, it’s my battle-cry,” said Wells, who answered some fun questions to get to know her better.
