Featured Speaker Sony Recording Artist Dan Jens of 4TROOPS! Dan will share his amazing story of overcoming personal challenges throughout his life by always staying focused on his passion: music. That focus landed him on America's Got Talent (video) in 2009 where he finished 11th! Soon after he signed a record deal with Sony and is touring across the country. His story is an inspiration to all of us who struggle with staying dedicated to our passion.
Dan will perform a few LIVE songs at the conclusion of his discussion. Steve (Dan's former band mate) might share a previously unreleased video of some old footage of their band One Less Infinity!
