About Brian King Joseph
More than a musician, Brian King Joseph’s electric violin and sparkling presence make him an electrifying performer who is revolutionizing music. The self-taught, self-produced artist is a rebellious prodigy and game-changer who brings a unique, refreshing and modern twist to the timeless instrument.
Brian began performing publically in his home town of Washington, DC at four years old, and in 2012 he received a Presidential Scholarship to the prestigious Berklee College of Music. He gained international attention on Season 13 of America’s Got Talent, where he finished in 3rd place.
Over the years, Brian has crossed musical boundaries, bringing his sound to touring performances with George Clinton & The P-Funk Allstars and Machine Gun Kelly, gaining him recognition and accolades from Chris Brown, Fetty Wap, Machine Gun Kelly, Keke Palmer, Mike Posner and Snoop Dogg. He continues to tour with his reggae band, Lucky Dub, and has appeared in MTV’s Real World and several commercials.
Brian was also the first winner of MTV's 2016 music competition, Cover of the Month. After receiving more than 26 million claps (likes) within a one-month period, BKJ was personally selected the winner by musician/host Mike Posner.
About Joe Comet
Following his 12 years of service in the Air Force, stationed in the U.S. and Europe, Joe Comet has become one of America’s busiest comedy magicians. His unique blend of humor and magic is entertaining audiences of all ages in comedy clubs, lounges, casinos, theatres, and special events worldwide.
Joe’s AFE Variety Show performance features an appearance by Miss Oklahoma, Addison Price.
About Christina Wells
A study in determination, poise and talent, Christina Wells hasn’t taken the easy road to fame. Voted Best Performer by her Pasadena High School Senior Class, Christina set out to pursue her passion for singing. After a long series of rejections, not because of her voice but because of her “look,” Christina put her passion aside and became a Registered Nurse as a way to provide for her two children. After 15 years as a nurse, she reignited her fire for singing through community theater, gaining accolades for her stellar musical theater performances. Soon she was a featured soloist in Super Bowl LIVE! presented by Verizon Wireless, was named Houston’s Pride Superstar for 2016-2017, and F.A.C.E Awards Entertainer of the Year for 2016.
Her biggest break came when she auditioned for America’s Got Talent, made it to the show, and went all the way to the semifinals, winning praises from the judges for her powerhouse voice and her message of positivity, hope and love.
About Dominguez Poodles
Considered the best dog act in the country, The Dominquez Poodles take the stage by storm as the pack of rescued dogs run, walk, jump and climb through a series of brilliant tricks. Seen by millions on TV shows like America’s Got Talent, and in halftime sports shows in arenas around the country, the family of humans and their rescue dogs are a team working in harmony.
Traveling the country in an RV with their dogs, the troupe performs at fairgrounds, arenas and other venues as they share their joy of positive dog training. Husband and wife, Jorge and Alcira Dominguez, are joined on stage by their two children, Wally and Logan. All four two-legged creatures work with the 10 rescue dogs who hit the jackpot on a “fur-ever home.” The training approach is upbeat with an emphasis on fun. And even the kids seem to be having a blast as they lead the pups through the tricks.
In 2018, Hans won the hearts of Americans with his cheeky, electrifying song and dance routines on America’s Got Talent. The show asked him back to perform on America’s Got Talent: The Champions, and judges declared him one of the ten best entertainers in the world.
The Hans experience is a glittery cabaret mix of comedy, singing, dancing and his trusty accordion. His original production of Hans: Like a German debuted to sold-out crowds at the Adelaide Fringe Festival in 2019, winning the Best Cabaret award, and in 2020 he released his first single, Oxygen, a disco/dance anthem. He has also appeared in countless television shows, including Eurovision: Australia Decides Live and The Today Show.
