“Selfies” in the pool, Ray-Bans by the lake, a flying tie, a shoe in your face . . . who’s responsible for it all? The Phantom, of course. Now studying at Belmont University, Carrollton High School graduate and all-around talent Ben Poss was the last “hoorah” for the class of 2013- and we are SO glad he came to us before he headed off to Nashville! He (clearly) can entertain: he can act; he can sing . . . and not JUST sing . . . but sing OPERA! Our jaws dropped over the talent of the entire cast at CHS’ Phantom of the Opera this spring, not to mention the overall production- wow! Among the select few to portray the Phantom in a high school production of the musical, Ben was phenomenal. We fully expect to see him reprise his role if he gets the chance at Belmont, and someday, on Broadway! And sure, he had us do some professional headshots for his acting portfolio, but somehow he still found a way to sneak in some selfies in the pool! Whether jumping, swimming, peeking over Ray-Bans at sunset, or showing off style from casual tanks to a jacket and tie, Ben is THE definition of fun . . . but we take his talent seriously! This guy is going places, and it’s gonna be a blast along the way. Keep us posted, Ben!
